Chris Plummer is now looking for a “level of consistency” as Corby Town go in search of third successive win in Blue Square Bet North at Oxford City tonight (7.45pm).

The new Steelmen boss has enjoyed a fine start to life at the helm as a 3-2 success at Workington was followed by a good performance at the weekend as his team saw off Colwyn Bay 3-1 at Steel Park.

But Plummer has warned his players not to get carried away at their recent upturn in fortunes as they prepare to visit seventh-placed Oxford, who seem to have adjusted well to life at a new level having been promoted last season.

Plummer also confirmed he is now being assisted on a permanent basis by Corby’s academy boss Mark Peters.

“Mark has come in over the last week or so and he has been at the club for a long time with the academy,” Plummer said.

“We got on well so I don’t see any need to change anything from that point of view.

“We have had two very good results but now we are looking for a level of consistency.

“We can’t win every single game, although that won’t stop us from going out to do just that.

“We require the same effort every week and if we stick to our game plans then I think we will win more games than we lose.

“The key now is to not get too carried away but to make sure we carry on looking up rather than down.”

Plummer, meanwhile, believes Derby County youngster Stefan Galinski has helped give Corby a more solid look at the back after joining on loan for an initial month.

And the Steelmen boss also had praise for fellow centre-half Paul Malone, who has recently handed over the club captaincy to Jason Crowe.

“Stefan has come in and he has looked at home in both games,” Plummer added.

“I thought Paul probably had his best game of the season as well at the weekend.

“We have changed things around at the back and we looked a lot more solid.

“We have done a lot of work on the training ground over the last week or so and it paid dividends.”
