Carl Piergianni says confidence is “thriving” in the Corby Town squad at the moment.

The Steelmen kept up their recent good form in the Blue Square Bet North with a fine 2-1 success at Stalybridge Celtic on Saturday. That victory against a side who started the day in the play-off places, means Chris Plummer’s side have suffered just one defeat in their last six league games.

The only setback in that run came in the form of a 2-1 reverse at second-placed Guiseley last Tuesday, a game Piergianni felt Corby deserved more from.

But the centre-half, who scored the opening goal at Bower Fold, was delighted with the way his team bounced back at the weekend.

“It was a good win for us,” Piergianni said.

“I thought we played well and were a bit unfortunate to lose in the game up at Guiseley, we deserved a point from that.

“Stalybridge were in the top five on Saturday so to go there and win just shows that we can compete with the top sides in the league.

“The confidence is thriving around the group. We believed we could win up at Stalybridge. We had already been to the likes of Chester and Guiseley and given them a good game so we knew we were capable of getting the win at the weekend.”

Piergianni, meanwhile, believes there are “no limits” on what Corby can go on to achieve in the second half of the season.

But he knows they will need to show more consistency if they are to achieve the overall target that Plummer has set for them.

“The gaffer has set us a target of finishing in the top half of the table and that is very achievable,” the defender added.

“I don’t think there are any limits to what we can do in the second half of the season.

“But we will need to show a bit more consistency and put a string of good results together if we want to carry on moving up.”
