Chris Plummer was delighted with a “fantastic response” from the Corby Town squad as they bounced back from a tough week with their first win of the season in the Blue Square Bet North.
Caretaker-manager Plummer took charge of the Steelmen for the first time on Saturday and saw his side claim a superb 3-2 success at Workington.
That came following the shock resignation of Ian Sampson last weekend after Corby had suffered five successive defeats.
But it all came together in Cumbria as goals from Josh Moreman, debutant Stefan Galinski and Avelino Vieira sealed the victory.
“It was a fantastic response from the lads,” Plummer said.
“They did everything that was asked of them.
“We know from pre-season that there is ability in there but we had to cut out the individual mistakes.
“It was pleasing because we got our noses in front in the second half and then we hit the post so we were a big threat.
“To be fair to Workington, they got a second goal and our goalkeeper (Paul Walker) made one excellent save but, to be honest, we were very happy with the performance.”
Plummer, meanwhile, was impressed with centre-half Galinski, who joined the club on loan from Derby County last week.
“His performance was very good,” Plummer added.
“Stefan is still a young lad who is learning his trade but he gave us a more solid look and his goal was a bonus.
“It was a good all-round display.”
