Greg Mills insists the Corby Town players will do all they can to maintain their early “winning habit”.

The Steelmen have enjoyed a superb start to the new Southern League Premier Division campaign with two wins from their first two matches.

Mills was on target from the penalty spot in both the opening-day 2-0 home success over Hitchin Town and Tuesday’s impressive 2-1 victory at Dunstable Town.

The Steelmen had to show their battling qualities in midweek as they fell behind after just 24 seconds before having to see the game out with 10 men following a straight red card for Wilson Carvalho.

And Mills believes the fact they showed their “ugly” side stands them in good stead for the tests that lie ahead, the first of which is a trip to Cirencester Town tomorrow (Saturday).

“We all had the same target during the summer and that was to try to get a good start to the season and then build on it,” Mills said.

“It was good to get a win on the first day and then I thought we showed another side of us on Tuesday.

“We went behind after 24 seconds but we stuck at it and came back to win the game, the dressing-room was buzzing afterwards.

“We know we are capable of playing good football but we have now shown that we can do the ugly stuff as well and that will be important as the season goes on.

“It’s all about momentum, we are in a winning habit and we want to stay in that for as long as we possibly can.

“Obviously we were happy after Saturday but I think we have taken even more confidence from what we did on Tuesday night. We certainly have nothing to fear against anyone.

“It is a close-knit squad. The lads are working hard for each other and the manager and we all get along. That will be important for us as the season progresses.”
