Tommy Wright believes Corby Town are facing a “test of character” as they bid to get back to winning ways in the Vanarama National League North this week.
Having won the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division title last season, the Steelmen manager and his players are in a somewhat unusual position after they made it three games without a win following the 1-0 defeat at FC United of Manchester on Saturday.
That setback saw them drop into the bottom half of the table ahead of two home matches over the next few days.
Corby take on Boston United at Steel Park on Wednesday night before hosting Worcester City next weekend.
And Wright is keen to see his players get back on track as quickly as possible.
“It is a test of character now,” he said.
“Wednesday is a big game, it’s all about getting back to winning ways and it’s almost a must for us. We need to get that positive feeling back.
“It is our 10th game of the season and I said at the start that this would be the point where you can look at the table.
“If we win on Wednesday then we could be back up in the top seven or eight but if we lose and the results go against us on Tuesday then we could find ourselves at the lower end and that’s not where we want to be.”
