Andrew Wilson is hoping Corby Town can get “back on track” when they take on Biggleswade Town in the Calor League Premier Division at Steel Park tonight (Wednesday).

The Steelmen joint-manager admitted to being disappointed with his team’s performance during Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Chippenham Town after they had led on two occasions.

It means Corby are now without a win in two on their own ground which had, up until last Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat to Hitchin Town, been something of a fortress.

But Wilson insists his side are heading into tonight’s clash in a “positive frame of mind”.

“I am looking forward to the game,” he said.

“It is a chance to have another home game and it is a chance for us to pick up some more points.

“I certainly came away from Saturday’s game feeling disappointed but we have taken a point when we didn’t play that well and that can be seen as a positive.

“The lads will be ready and, in the last few days we have had the chance to address a few issues.

“Now we can look forward and this game is a chance for us to get back on track.

“But it won’t be easy for us. We have watched Biggleswade, just like we watch every team we are going to be up against.

“They do pose quite a big threat and we will have to be wary of that while also making sure we get our own attacking game going.”

Wilson confirmed there will be late checks on both Paul Malone and fellow manager Tommy Wright after they played at the weekend following respective ankle and groin injuries.

Gareth Jelleyman was an unused substitiute and Nathan Fox missed the game and both will also be assessed.

Wilson added: “We will check on them and see how they are doing. But we certainly won’t run the risk of losing them for a longer period.”
