Tommy Wright insists he is not contemplating a relegation battle for Corby Town this season.

The Steelmen dropped into the bottom three of the Vanarama National League North for the first time following last weekend’s 2-1 home defeat to new leaders AFC Fylde.

It’s now 11 games without a win in all competitions for Wright’s team who will once again attempt to turn their fortunes around when they face Curzon Ashton at Steel Park tomorrow (Saturday).

It is a match that has been brought forward from December 19.

The league table makes for unpleasant reading for Corby fans at the present time.

But, with three key matches coming up, Wright is firmly focused on getting some much-needed points on the board.

“Given how close the league is, particularly in the bottom half, I don’t think the table will have a realistic look to it until the turn of the year,” the Corby boss said.

“In our next three we have Curzon tomorrow and then we are away to Gloucester and then at home to AFC Telford and this is an opportunity for us to get some points.

“A couple of wins can make things look very different but we also know a couple of defeats can have the reverse effect.

“There are 27 points to play for between now and the new year and that’s what we are focused on.

“I am not going to start to talking about relegation battles or anything like that because I genuinely believe we won’t have to talk about it.

“For me, it is still a matter of how high we will finish rather than anything else.”
