Chris Plummer was delighted with the performance of his Corby Town side as they booked themselves a place in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup.

An impressive second-half display helped the Steelmen beat Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division leaders Leamington 3-2 at Steel Park.

The win was Corby’s second successive victory at home and it ended Leamington’s 22-match unbeaten run.

Plummer’s side had to come from goal down after they fell behind after just four minutes.

But Tom McGowan levelled before the break and then two excellent goals from Josh Moreman sealed the win, despite Leamington pulling another back late on.

The Steelmen now take their place in the third qualifying round draw, which takes place tomorrow (Monday).

And Plummer said: “I am very, very pleased.

“The performance for the whole 90 minutes was very good, particularly in the second half. We tore them apart at times.

“We have still got to cut out those mistakes at the back but it is great to get the win.

“We went 1-0 down early on and in the past we might have dropped our heads.

“But we got a goal back and I just said to the boys that if we kept doing what we were doing then we would be in the hat on Monday.

“We still had a lot to do but we came out and did it.”

Plummer, meanwhile, was delighted with Moreman’s display as he grabbed his fifth and sixth goals of the season, with his second of the afternoon being an excellent individual effort.

“Josh’s overall performance was very good,” the Steelmen boss added.

“There are still a couple of elements that need some work but he is learning the game.

“He showed his raw talent and he is a handful for anyone. I am hoping he will keep replicating that week in, week out.”
