A big week lies ahead for Corby Town.

The Steelmen head to Skrill North side Colwyn Bay in the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup next weekend with a place in the first round proper on the line.

But, before that, Corby are back in Calor League Premier Division action on Wednesday night when they will be going for an eighth win in a row at Steel Park as they take on Biggleswade Town.

Joint-managers Tommy Wright and Andrew Wilson were left scratching their heads again at the weekend as the away-day curse struck their side again.

While the form on their own pitch is almost second to none, they are still waiting for a first win on the road with the latest setback being a 2-1 defeat at Calor League Division One Central leaders Daventry Town at the weekend – a defeat which ended their interest in the FA Carlsberg Trophy at the first hurdle.

The focus now switches back to the league before the big game in north Wales next weekend.

And Wright wants his team to get back on track as he admitted the league is the “priority” for him and Wilson.

“The cup matches are great for the club,” Wright said.

“You can make a lot of money from those matches and, of course, when Saturday comes around we will be doing all we can to get through to the first round of the FA Cup.

“But the league is the bread and butter and it will always be our priority.

“We want to win every single game we are involved in, obviously that isn’t always possible.

“But winning, like losing, becomes a habit and we have to make sure we regain the winning mentality week in, week out, whether we are at home or away.

“So it is important we focus only on the next game. And that is against Biggleswade. We want to get more points on the board.”
