Tommy Wright has back his Corby Town players to follow up their impressive midweek performance at Frome Town tomorrow (Saturday).

The Steelmen drew 0-0 with fellow high-fliers Redditch United at Steel Park on Wednesday night as they produced an excellent display to put a halt to two successive defeats in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division.

Corby sit in third spot on goal difference while struggling Frome lie second-from-bottom in the table.

Boss Wright is set to keep faith with the same squad for the clash.

He said; “It will be the same again.

“The boys have earned the right to go on and put the shirt on again.

“We go again on Saturday and we will go there looking for three points.

“We need to build on what we did on Wednesday night and we need to kick on. All the incentives are there.”

Wright, meanwhile, insists a decision was made to “lean on experience” after Cleveland Taylor captained the Steelmen on Wednesday.

Regular skipper Paul Malone was also on the pitch but it was Taylor who took the armband.

“It was something we have discussed,” the Steelmen boss explained.

“I just want to get Paul back to doing what he does.

“At the minute, when things aren’t going so well for you I think you need to lean on experience and Cleveland is the most experienced player in that team. He leads by example, he encourages and that’s the reason behind it.

“It’s nothing against Paul, it’s a decision we have made. Cleveland took the armband and the two of them were superb.

“It’s not about one individual, it’s three, four or five. It’s not about an armband, it’s about how many people want to stand up and be counted when things aren’t going for you.”
