Ian Sampson is glad Corby Town don’t have to wait too long as they look to bounce back from their opening-day misery.

After an unbeaten pre-season, the Steelmen suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Vauxhall Motors in the first game of the Blue Square Bet North campaign.

But there is no rest for the wicked and Sampson is already looking ahead to tomorrow night’s (Tuesday) trip to Solihull Moors, who also suffered an opening-day defeat.

“We have a couple of days to recover and then it’s straight back into it,” the Steelmen boss said.

“Hopefully we can put it right at Solihull.

“We had a real go in the second half on Saturday but we lacked quality and that can happen at this level, sometimes you get it and sometimes you don’t.

“Solihull on Tuesday night gives us that chance to bounce back.

“We weren’t the only team to get beaten on the first day of the season.

“It’s now a matter of how we respond and react to having our backs against the wall.

“Hopefully we will respond in the right manner and get some points on the board.”
