Tommy Wright is keen to keep things positive for his Corby Town players ahead of a crucial clash at Bradford Park Avenue on Wednesday night.

The Steelmen slipped back into the bottom three of the Vanarama National League North on Saturday after they suffered a 3-1 defeat to play-off contenders Nuneaton Town at Steel Park.

Corby could even find themselves at the foot of the table by the time they head north on Wednesday should AFC Telford United and Hednesford Town win at Alfreton Town and Stockport County respectively tomorrow (Tuesday) evening.

Wright is well aware of the importance of Wednesday’s clash as his team face a Bradford side who could yet be drawn right into the battle to avoid the drop.

And the Steelmen boss insists his team will be heading their with only one thing in mind.

“Each game is equally as important as the next,” Wright said.

“This is a rollercoaster and there will be many more highs and many more lows.

“We have got to keep the boys positive and we will go on to Bradford and we will try to win.

“It’s going to be a massive game for us. It’s a nice, long midweek trip and hopefully we can come away with a victory.

“We are only as good as our last game and we will go into Wednesday trying to correct a wrong.”

The Steelmen will have Nathan Hicks available again after he served a one-match ban at the weekend, although he would have been ineligible anyway as he is currently on loan from Nuneaton.
