As the beginning of the league campaign gets nearer it will be another important encounter for both sides.

The Steelmen come into the match on the back of playing Newcastle United and Leeds United XIs in the Steel Park Cup at the weekend.

And, although some players might need a little breather, Corby boss Tommy Wright insists he will be taking seriously the challenge Harborough Town will provide.

"Everyone will go there," Wright said. "There are three of four who put in a lot of minutes at the weekend who might not feature but we will take all our squad.

"We have to weight up how many play and how many minutes each of them plays. But we will be strong. We'll have a good team out."

Wright also confessed to being pleased with how the warm-up to the season has gone so far.

He added: "We've had five games. We've won three convincingly and had had two good tests against a strong MK Dons and then Newcastle at the weekend.

"The lads are gelling and we've had the chance to work on a couple of different systems.

"I'm happy. It's shaping up nicely but that could all change if we don't turn up properly at Harborough Town tonight and get turned over by them."
