Josh Moreman is determined to earn a place back in the Corby Town starting line-up.
Last season’s top scorer finally got off the mark in the current Calor League Premier Division campaign when he came off the bench to hit the winner in Wednesday’s 1-0 success over St Neots Town at Steel Park.
It has been a stop-start opening to the new season for Moreman, who was linked with a number of full-time clubs over the summer.
But the striker was delighted to open his account in midweek and is now hoping he can do enough to earn a starting role in Saturday’s home clash with Bashley.
“It was pleasing to come off the bench and score what proved to be the winner,” Moreman said.
“I am determined to cement a place in the squad and hopefully that has helped me do it.
“I think things have settled down recently. It is a new league and a new way of playing. A lot of teams hit it long and we have to get used to dealing with that.
“It has taken us a bit of time but hopefully we can get on a run. I still think we can be up there if we carry on playing like we did on Wednesday.
“I am just trying to get myself back in there and hopefully I have done enough to get a start in the next game.”
Moreman, meanwhile, insists the Steelmen squad are “happy” under the leadership of caretaker-manager Mark Peters as the club continue their search for a permanent successor to Chris Plummer.
Corby have taken seven points from a possible 12 since Peters took control, including two wins in a row at Steel Park.
And Moreman added: “All the lads are happy with Mark.
“You never know what will happen and who the club will get in on a permanent basis but Mark has done a good job.
“He has taken it in his stride, he had made changes to the formation which have worked and we have got a couple of wins under our belt. That has to be a positive for us.”
