All will be forgotten with a Redditch success

Andrew Wilson believes what has happened at Corby Town so far this week will all be forgotten if they pick up another Calor League Premier Division success at Redditch United tomorrow (Saturday).

The Steelmen picked up a fine 3-1 home victory over Weymouth last weekend before going down 3-0 at St Neots Town in the second round of the Red Insure Cup on Tuesday night.

In between, there were three departures from Steel Park with Nabil Shariff and Lee Hendrie leaving the club, the latter due to work commitments, before Nathan Rooney also left, citing the strain of travelling from his home in Telford as the reason.

Corby did bring midfielder Aman Verma in on loan from Stockport County ahead of last Saturday’s victory and joint-manager Wilson is hopeful of adding at least one new face to his squad ahead of Saturday’s trip.

But he insists his squad must stay focused on the job at hand, in the sure knowledge that Redditch will provide a big test for the Steelmen.

“It has been an important week for the club, there have been a lot of changes,” Wilson said.

“But all of that will be forgotten if we can go up to Redditch and get another win.

“Nothing has changed from our point of view, we will be preparing properly because we want to go there and get three points.

“We want to get moving up the league as quickly as possible and the only way that will happen is by going on a consistent run of form.

“We have had Redditch watched and they are decent. They have a threat in the wide areas and there is plenty of pace in their team.

“I am expecting a very tough game and we will have to be ready for that.”
