Tommy Wright insists Corby Town fear no-one in the Calor League Premier Division.
The Steelmen are due to take on second-placed Cambridge City at Steel Park in their first game of 2014 tomorrow (Wednesday) after suffering a 2-0 home defeat to leaders Hemel Hempstead Town on Saturday as Paul Malone and joint-manager Wright were both sent off for two bookable offences.
It left the Steelmen in the bottom half of the table and 12 points off the play-off places.
But Wright maintains a top-five finish is still the target for his team.
“It is another massive game for us,” he said.
“We know how important our home games are. We will take a bit confidence into it. “Performance-wise, we were happy on Saturday and we go again.
“We still think we can get into the play-offs and that remains the target.
“We have looked at the fixtures and we have worked out where we think we can pick up points.
“Nothing really scares us in this league. We don’t fear anyone so we will carry on doing what we are doing.”
The Steelmen have re-arranged their home clash with Poole Town, which was called off because of a waterlogged pitch on December 21.
The match will now be played at Steel Park on Wednesday, March 19 (7.45pm).
