Chris Plummer believes Corby Town are offering value for money at the moment.

And he is hoping more people in the town take the opportunity to come to Steel Park to offer their support to his team.

The Steelmen are unbeaten in six matches in all competitions after Carl Piergianni’s late header earned them a 1-1 draw against Oxford City in the Blue Square Bet North.

That came just a few days after a thrilling encounter with Wealdstone earned them a place in the first round of the FA Carlsberg Trophy.

That tie sees Corby take on Blue Square Bet South side Hayes & Yeading United at Steel Park on Saturday.

And Plummer is hoping more people will descend on the Steelmen’s home ground after just 299 witnessed the weekend stalemate against a team in and around the play-off places.

The Corby manager said: “It’s difficult to explain to be honest because our form has been very good at home.

“We were involved in a very exciting game here last week in the FA Trophy and some of the football we played was a joy to watch.

“So I am really surprised the fans aren’t turning out in more numbers. I think it is great value to come here and be entertained by your local club.

“Hopefully the lads will hear more voices in the crowd in the future and it would be great to see some new faces coming along to see what we are doing here.”

Plummer, meanwhile, is hopeful of having experienced pair Jason Crowe and Leon McKenzie back for next weekend after both missed Saturday’s draw, especially with midfielder Nat Wedderburn and top scorer Josh Moreman both sitting out due to suspensions.

“Leon went over on his ankle again on Wednesday and it was disappointing that he couldn’t play,” Plummer added.

“Obviously, we would like to have Leon and Jason back for next week. I don’t think we can underestimate how good Jason has been for us this season. He probably doesn’t get the plaudits he deserves.

“Hopefully we can get them both back because we are without Josh and Nat Wedderburn. But we have a squad now that we believe can cover for anyone who may be missing next week.”
