Aman Verma was the late hero for Corby Town as they picked up a third successive away win in the Calor League Premier Division with a 2-1 success at Hungerford Town.

Having claimed a 2-0 victory at Hitchin Town on Saturday, the Steelmen did it again and this win was good enough to send them into the top 10 in the league table.

Tom McGowan failed to recover from the injury he sustained at the weekend and it meant a return for Greg Mills who missed out at the weekend after pulling up in the warm-up.

Recent signings Courtney Herbert and Nathan Stanton both missed out due to injuries while Danny Wright, the younger brother of joint-boss Tommy, was named on the bench.

The Steelmen took the lead seven minutes before half-time thanks to Stuart Hendrie.

But it looked like they would have to settle for a point when Alan O’Brien levelled for Hungerford with 19 minutes to go.

However, Verma - who was also on target at Hitchin - struck in the 88th minute to secure another success for the Steelmen, who are now 11 points adrift of the play-off places although they have four games in hand on Bideford, who currently sit in fifth place.

Corby will be hoping to bring their away form back home at the weekend as they are due to take on Frome Town at Steel Park on Saturday.

Steelmen: Walker, Thomas, Jelleyman, Malone, Carruthers, Ives, Hendrie, Rooney, T Wright, Verma, Mills. Subs: D Wright, Carpenter, May, Moon.

Goals: Hendrie (38 mins, 0-1), O’Brien (71 mins, 1-1), Verman (88 mins, 1-2).

Attendance: 75.
