Andrew Wilson knows there is “a lot of work to be done” if Corby Town are to make a last-ditch attempt to finish in the Calor League Premier Division play-off places.

The Steelmen produced one of their best displays of the season at Steel Park on Saturday as they saw off sixth-placed Bideford 3-0 thanks to a brace from Chris Carruthers and a goal from Greg Mills.

Corby now lie 11 points off Stourbridge, who sit in the final play-off place, with two games in hand and the first of those is at Steel Park on Wednesday night when they face another stern test with fourth-placed St Albans City the visitors.

And joint-manager Wilson insists his team will “focus all their efforts” on getting another win ahead of Saturday’s trip to second-placed Chesham United.

“We are looking to finish as high as we possibly can,” Wilson said.

“If that means the play-offs then obviously that would be amazing. There is a lot work to be done to achieve that.

“I am not saying it is not achievable because it is achievable but we don’t want to put any undue pressure on ourselves.

“We just want to take one game at a time and try to chalk up the wins.

“We have won this one and we will focus all efforts on Wednesday and we will try to get three points.”

Wilson, meanwhile, praised his players for their display at the weekend and he was pleased their maintained their belief after a goalless first half before eventually running away with it.

“At half-time we just asked the boys to carry on doing what we were doing,” he added.

“We controlled the first half after the first 10 minutes. We had two or three good chances and while you are creating those opportunities, you have belief that you will eventually take them.”.
