Tommy Wright knows Corby Town must keep winning if they are to remain in the hunt for the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division title.
The Steelmen claimed a 3-1 success over Cambridge City at Steel Park on Saturday as they made it 10 games without defeat in all competitions.
The win was enough to move them back up to second place after morning leaders Weymouth suffered a shock 1-0 home defeat to Chippenham Town.
Poole Town are back on top and both they and Weymouth still have three and two games in hand respectively on the Steelmen.
The next of those come tomorrow (Tuesday) night but Wright knows his team’s task is simple.
The Steelmen boss said: “I have been saying it for weeks now that we can only look after ourselves. We can’t affect what happens elsewhere.
“I didn’t see Chippenham getting anything at Weymouth and that was the shock result of the weekend.
“Poole have found another gear just recently but I look at both teams’ fixtures and there are some potential slip-ups in there as well as the fact that they have to play each other twice next month.
“They still have the games in hand so we will just have to see what happens but all we can do is try to keep winning.”
Corby’s next assignment comes at Paulton Rovers next weekend and Wright is well aware his team will be in for a tough test.
“Paulton have won at Weymouth and they almost beat Poole at home as well,” he added.
“I think we gave them their worst result of the season when we beat them 4-1 at home but I am an honest guy and there was no way that game deserved that scoreline.
“It is not going to be easy down there and we know that. We will keep our feet on the ground, prepare properly and try to come away with three points.”
