Corby Town manager Chris Plummer was not too downcast despite watching his side’s relegation worries deepen at Steel Park on Wednesday night.

Ryan Semple and Jordan Ivey-Ward were on target for the hosts who twice fought back from being a goal down against Guiseley but the visitors took the lead for the third time to secure the points with a 3-2 victory.

The result leaves the Steelmen just one point ahead of the bottom three with Colwyn Bay, who are one place behind, have two games in hand.

But although his side have now picked up one points from their past eight outings, Plummer remains in confident mood.

He said: “The performance was pretty good and although the result wasn’t what we wanted, I don’t think we deserved to lose.

“Speaking to their manager after the game and hearing him say that we battereed then was some consolation but unfortunately that doesn’t get you any points.

“We let in three poor goals and they only had four or five shots at goal so that should give us a bit of confidence.”

And Plummer knows that a positive appraoch is the only way forward as he acknowledged that the Steelman are now properly involved in a tussle for survival.

He added: “We won’t let our heads go down and we’ll be 100 per cent committed.

“It’s a dogfight, we know that, but if we keep playing the way we did against Guiseley then the results will come.

“That should give us some confidence to take into the back end of the season.”
