Tommy Wright insists there has been no hangover from Corby Town’s FA Cup exit as they prepare to return to Calor League Premier Division action tomorrow (Saturday).

The Steelmen take on Weymouth at Steel Park with joint-manager Wright following their disappointing first-round defeat to Skrill South side Dover Athletic last weekend.

Wright and fellow boss Wilson rotated their squad for Wednesday’s 4-0 victory over Sileby Rangers in the NFA Hillier Cup.

But their full focus is now back on the league campaign and Wright is hoping his side can “build some momentum” as they look to get moving up the table.

“There has been no hangover from what happened last weekend,” the joint-manager insisted.

“And I didn’t expect there to be one either because the lads have already shown they can bounce back from defeats.

“We need to get some league wins under our belts and try to build up some momentum.

“Our home record is still very good, despite the defeat to Dover and it is important we try to keep that going this weekend.

“I have said it before and I will say it again, it is all about consistency.

“We have as many as five games in hand on teams above us and we have to make sure we take advantage of those when they come and get ourselves moving up the league.”

The Steelmen are set to have a full-strength squad to choose from with Chris Carruthers expected to shake off some tightness he felt in his hamstring during the midweek win over Sileby.
