Tommy Wright was delighted to see Corby Town bounce back with an impressive 2-0 victory at Chippenham Town in the Southern League Premier Division.
The Steelmen boss was furious with his players following the 2-1 home defeat to Slough Town last Wednesday.
But his criticism turned into praise as they put that setback firmly behind them in Wiltshire.
Spencer Weir-Daley’s hot streak in front of goal continued as he struck in each half to secure the points.
“To win away from home is an achievement in itself but to get the clean sheet and have Spencer scoring another two goals made it a very good day for us,” the Corby manager said.
“There is part of me that is still very frustrated by what happened against Slough last Wednesday but you will always get nights that.
“But the lads were determined to put things right and it was great to see them do it.”
Weir-Daley’s brace made it six goals in four games since he opened his account for the club in the 2-1 defeat at Norton United in the FA Cup.
And Wright believes the Steelmen are “reaping the rewards” for the striker’s hard work after he battled back from a shoulder injury suffered in pre-season.
The Corby boss added: “Spencer needed that first one and we brought him in during the summer because we knew he can score plenty of goals.
“He was getting a bit frustrated but it took a while for him to get over that injury.
“But we are reaping the rewards for the work he has put in. He works hard for the team and it is great to see him getting goals on a regular basis now.”
The Steelmen are now preparing for another trip on Tuesday night as they head to Hereford United before facing a blank weekend with their scheduled opponents for next Saturday, Biggleswade Town, still involved in the FA Cup.
