Chris Plummer is glad Corby Town have one more game to iron out a few issues as they gear up for the new Calor League Premier Division season.

The Steelmen take on Skrill North side Bishop’s Stortford at Steel Park tomorrow (Saturday) in their final pre-season friendly of the summer.

Plummer’s side, who were relegated from the Conference North last season, take on Burnham at home in the league curtain-raiser next weekend.

And the Corby boss believes this Saturday’s game is ideal for his players after he admitted to not being entirely happy with the way they performed after the first half-an-hour of the 1-1 draw at Stamford on Wednesday.

“We had two close games with Bishop’s Stortford last season so this will be a good one for us to have as a final friendly,” Plummer said.

“We have some work to do in certain areas and we will be looking to put those right before the league season starts.

“It is a very good test for us. They are a level above us now and hopefully, by the end of the game, we will know where we are.”

Defender Paul Malone was on target for the Steelmen in the draw at Stamford before the hosts levelled through Jordan Smith’s penalty in the second half.
