Tommy Wright is set to “shuffle the pack” for Corby Town’s NFA Hillier Senior Cup semi-final at Peterborough Northern Star tonight (Tuesday).

The Steelmen’s main priority remains on winning promotion from the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division.

But boss Wright insists he wants to see the club progress in both the county cup and the Red Insure Cup with Corby taking on North Leigh in the semi-final of the latter competition at Steel Park next Wednesday.

For the moment, however, Wright is focusing his attention on this evening’s clash at the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League Premier Division side.

The likes of 16-year-old Danny Draper, Sam Donkin, Elliott Bentley, Curtis Hartley and Rob Morgan are all likely to get a run-out while Elliott Chamberlain, who scored the second goal in Saturday’s 3-2 loss at Biggleswade Town, and Claudiu Hoban will also feature.

And, even though there will be sweeping changes, Wright insists the expectation will be for his team to reach the final with Brackley Town already awaiting the winners.

“There will be a massive shuffling of the pack because there are players that I really need to have a good look at,” the Steelmen boss said.

“With the lads who will be in there, it looks a strong side and I would not pick that team unless I thought they were capable of getting the job done.

“We have another semi-final next week and we will be stronger for that because it is the league cup.

“But we want to get through in both competitions. We are taking them seriously and I expect us to progress.”

Corby, meanwhile, have confirmed their league trip to Slough Town has been re-arranged for Tuesday, March 24 (7.45pm).
