Actions spoke louder than words for Josh Moreman as he fired Corby Town into the first round of the FA Carlsberg Trophy.

The striker grabbed his 13th goal of the season in all competitions in dramatic circumstances on Wednesday night as he struck in the second minute of stoppage-time to seal the Steelmen’s 3-2 third qualifying round replay win over Ryman League Premier Division high-fliers Wealdstone.

It came just days after Moreman had been sent off for foul and abusive language in the first meeting between the two sides, which resulted in his team-mates having to battle away for a 1-1 draw in London.

But Moreman responded in the perfect manner and he admitted it was the perfect way to say sorry for losing his discipline at the weekend.

“We needed the win and I should have scored a lot earlier but we have managed to get through,” he said.

“I always felt confident I would get a goal, despite missing some chances and we should have put the game to bed a lot earlier than we did.

“We won a couple of games in the FA Cup and now it would be nice to have a bit of a run in the Trophy as well.

“Obviously, we want to keep moving up the league as well so we just have to give our best in every game.

“It was a silly sending-off and I should have kept my mouth shut but sometimes you just lose your head.

“So it’s nice to get the winner as a way of saying sorry for what happened down there.”

The Steelmen are now preparing for a return to Blue Square Bet North action tomorrow (Saturday) when they host Oxford City.

Moreman’s goal-scoring exploits have seen him train with npower League One side Stevenage earlier this week while Corby boss Chris Plummer also revealed that Gillingham are keen to look at the striker.

But Moreman is trying to remain level-headed and insists he just wants to carry on his good form.

“We have got a squad that is working well now and hopefully we can get another win on the board at the weekend,” he added.

“I just want to keep scoring goals and if that attracts interest then so be it.

“I just want to carry on doing what I am doing at the moment because things are going well.”
