Tommy Wright insists it will be the same again for Corby Town when they head to Dunstable Town tomorrow (Tuesday) night.

The Steelmen got their Southern League Premier Division campaign off to a winning start at the weekend as second-half goals from Greg Mills and Wilson Carvalho secured a 2-0 success over Hitchin Town at Steel Park.

And the manager is ready to put his faith in the same 11 tomorrow evening with Spencer Weir-Daley, an unused substitute at the weekend, still recovering from a shoulder injury.

Cleveland Taylor will again be missing due to personal reasons while the club are still awaiting international clearance to secure the signing of midfielder Shane Byrne, who was with Bray Wanderers in Ireland last season.

The Steelmen boss said: “There is more to come back into the squad.

“Spencer isn’t quite there, Cleveland is away for personal reasons

“We have to go with the same boys after a winning performance. We are hoping to get the Shane Byrne move over the line and that would be a welcome boost.

“But I don’t see us making changes because those lads have earned the right to keep the shirts for Tuesday.”

Wright is already wary of the threat newly-promoted Dunstable will pose to his team as they look to make it back-to-back wins at the start of the season.

“There are going to be some strong teams in there and we will respect Dunstable on Tuesday,” Wright added.

“I have had a look through their squad and they have good players, some of whom I have played with in the past.

“They have a bit of money behind them and they have a winning mentality from last season. It is going to be a tough game.”
