Chris Plummer is set to swoop for a third signing in as many days tomorrow (Monday) as he aims to strengthen his Corby Town squad for the Blue Square Bet North run-in.

The Steelmen slipped to a fifth successive defeat when they were beaten 2-1 at Bradford Park Avenue this weekend and, with Colwyn Bay drawing 1-1 at Altrincham, it means the gap between Corby and the relegation zone is now down to six points.

Plummer brought Stefan Galinski back to the club on the eve of the game as he joined from Stoke City until the end of the season while striker Jordan Ivey-Ward, who has played for Histon and Kettering Town this season, also started having joined late on Friday.

And the Steelmen boss is aiming to add one more to his squad early this week ahead of Wednesday’s home clash with Bishop’s Stortford and next weekend’s showdown at Colwyn Bay, which is shaping up to be one of the biggest games of the season.

“I thought Stefan was a big plus for us at Bradford, he hasn’t played much since he was last with us on loan and he went straight in and did well,” Plummer said.

“It is good to have him back and we know what he can do. We will have Carl Piergianni back from suspension soon and that will give us competition for places.

“With Jordan, we needed an extra body in that attacking area due to Francis Green’s injury. I am sure he will add something to our squad.

“We are trying to add one more and hopefully that will be done on Monday. If we can get him in then it will be another useful addition for the big games that lie ahead.”

Plummer was left to reflect on a familiar tale at Bradford as the hosts took a 2-0 lead in the first half, which meant a second-half fightback and a goal from Ryan Semple proved to be in vain.

“It is getting a bit tedious to be honest,” the Steelmen manager added.

“We were outbattled in the first half and that was very disappointing. They were very well-drilled with a couple of good players in there.

“Again, we were better after half-time and on another day we might have snatched an equaliser. But we can’t keep giving sides a headstart.”

Top scorer Josh Moreman, meanwhile, missed the game at Bradford following the birth of his daughter at the end of last week.
