Doughboys assistant Wright isn’t too worried

Wellingborough Town assistant-manager Jamie Wright doesn’t believe a couple of adverse results will have an effect as the Doughboys prepare to host Sleaford in the ChromaSport & Trophies UCL Premier Division.

A 1-0 defeat to Yaxley on Saturday was followed by a 3-1 loss at Daventry Town in the NFA Hillier Senior Cup in midweek but Wright isn’t too perturned.

He said: “The performances were quite good actually.

“We just didn’t take our chances at Yaxley, that is what ended up costing us, and Daventry are a good, and well-organised side.

“We created chances in both games so I don’t think there is too much to worry about from that perspective.

“We’ll be fine.”

But even if that is the case, results-wise, Wright wants the downward trend to be rectified in the next few days.

He added: “We need to put in a big performance against Sleaford then do the same again on Tuesday against Newport Pagnell.”

The Doughboys have been boosted ahead of tomorrow’s enocunter by the signing of Brad Piercewright.

The centre-half left Kettering Town before their 1-0 defeat of Egham Town last weekend and manager Craig Adams has moved quickly to add him to the ranks.

S&L Corby will be looking to bounce back from a 7-0 drubbing at Wisbech last time out when they make the trip to Holbeach.

In Division One, Rothwell Corinthians will seek to extend their unbeaten run to nine as they host Bounre.

It has been a stunning turnaround at Seargents Lawn under Shaun Sparrow’s stewardship and he outs it down to a change in attitude.

He said: “Once we got some good results the confidence came back and once that happened we started to play better football and now we’re disappointed if we draw games against sides who are above us.

“All of this only continues if the mentality of the players is right and that’s the case.”

There are two local derbies tonight with Raunds travelling to Thrapston and Whitworth hosting Irchester.

Tomorrow, Rushden & Higham entertain Burton Park Wanderers.
