Chris Plummer admits he will have at least one selection headache ahead of Corby Town’s trip to Chester in the Blue Square Bet North on Wednesday night.

The Steelmen were without suspended pair Nat Wedderburn and Josh Moreman for Saturday’s FA Carlsberg Trophy clash with Hayes & Yeading United, which saw Corby fight back from 2-0 down at half-time to win 3-2.

Moreman will miss the midweek trip as he completes a two-match ban but Wedderburn is available again, leaving Plummer with a big decision to make.

Tom McGowan replaced Wedderburn at the weekend and produced an impressive display in the middle of the pitch.

And Plummer said: “We know what Tom is about and I have said to him that he has been a bit unfortunate not to be in the side. It is just the way it has fallen.

“I had no qualms about putting him straight in the team with Nat being suspended and he did very well.

“It is a predicament for me going into Wednesday about who to pick and Tom has done his chances no harm whatsoever.”

Plummer, meanwhile, was full of praise for skipper Jason Crowe who scored his first goal for Corby as he grabbed the equaliser at the weekend.

The Steelmen boss added: “I think Jason had a tissue with him after the game to nurse the nose bleed from going that far forward!

“But I said a little while ago that he does a lot that goes unnoticed and it’s nice for him to pop up with a goal. He was in the right place at the right time.”
