Tommy Wright insists everyone at Corby Town “has got to be better” after their problems grew with last night’s home defeat to Stourbridge.
The Steelmen looked to be on course to maintain their unbeaten record at Steel Park in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division when Liam Marshall’s superb free-kick put them in front two minutes into the second half.
But two goals from Luke Benbow, one from the penalty spot, turned it around and secured a 2-1 success for Stourbridge.
That made it three defeats in a row for Wright’s team who remain in the bottom four of the table ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Ilkeston, who sit at the foot.
Wright felt key errors cost his team dearly last night and he insists his team must pick themselves up for a “massive” game at the weekend.
“We came up against a physical team who wanted to turn it into the channels and I thought we handled it really well, the Steelmen boss said.
“Questions will always be asked of young lads but I thought we handled that physical approach.
“We were happy to go in at 0-0 at half-time and we came out of the traps and scored a great free-kick. If we had scored one in the next five minutes after that, because I thought we created some decent chances, then it might have been a different game.
“But we have got an honest bunch and there are a couple who have come and apologised for certain mistakes that have been made.
“I don’t want to dig anyone out because we are in it together as a team but anyone who was at the game will have seen the goals have come from mistakes.
“We have all got to be better.
“From the top down, everybody has got to be better. Unless we are going to keep working hard then nothing will change.
“We will get back on the training ground, we will go back to the drawing board and we will start preparing for Saturday, which is going to be a massive game for us.”
