Gary Mills believes Corby Town’s point at Rushall Olympic last night (Tuesday) might prove to be a useful one at the end of the season.

The Steelmen battled out a 0-0 draw to move to within just one point of safety after the three teams immediately above the relegation zone in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division all lost.

It made it two clean sheets in a row for Mills’ team and he was delighted after his players put in “another big shift”.

“You can never be disappointed with an away point in this division,” Mills said.

“Every point you get on the road is hard earned and last night was no different.

“To be honest, the lads were fantastic for me. They put in another big shift.

“They were on the front foot from the start and we probably should have scored an early goal when Joe Iaciofano had a chance from five or six yards out.

“But the players kept going and we looked like the only team trying to win the game.

“I said to them afterwards, ‘you never know how important that point could be’.

“It was the least we deserved from the game and I was pleased for the lads because worked hard for it.”

The Steelmen return to action in another huge game at the weekend when they entertain relegation rivals Sutton Coldfield Town at Steel Park.
