Tommy Wright believes he has a “strong squad” in place as Corby Town get ready for the final push for promotion.

The Steelmen boss has been a busy man in the transfer market in recent weeks following the arrivals of Leicester City youngster Herve Pepe-N’goma and Leamington captain Stephan Morley.

There was further movement earlier this week as Claudiu Hoban returned to the club from Kettering Town.

With Kurtis Revan also signing on a dual registration from Oadby Town, Wright believes that will probably be it as far as comings and goings are concerned as the Steelmen look to secure a play-off place in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division.

They return to league action against Chippenham Town at Steel Park tomorrow (Saturday).

And Wright said: “With Claudiu coming in, I think that will be it.

“I am really looking forward to Saturday because we also have that extra competition for places with the likes of Stephan Morley and Claudiu joining us recently.

“We have Jamie Anton out on loan and he is still very much part of the plans and we will see how the situation with Herve develops.

“I don’t want to chop and change things too much because we have a good group who all get on well with each other.

“I am happy with the bunch of players we have and I think it is a strong squad to take us through the remainder of the season.”

Corby booked their place in the last four of the Red Insure Cup with a 3-1 success at Rugby Town on Tuesday night.

Wright put out a strong squad for the clash and was pleased to see his team blow away the cobwebs ahead of the return to league business this weekend.

“We didn’t have a game last midweek because it was postponed then the game at Slough was called off as well,” he added.

“That’s why they all played. It wasn’t ideal to leave them without a match for nearly two weeks but, on the other side of it, the break might have been a blessing in disguise.

“We have a few things to work on before the weekend and we will be ready for it.”

Edi Appleton serves the last of a two-match ban this weekend while Ben Milnes has been rated as doubtful after suffering an ankle injury at Rugby.
