Tommy Wright is hoping Corby Town can return to winning ways this weekend.

After two successive home draws in the Calor League Premier Division, the Steelmen were today (Friday) heading down to Cornwall for an overnight stay ahead of tomorrow’s clash at Truro City.

And, after a frustrating night in the 1-1 draw with Biggleswade Town on Wednesday, joint-boss Wright is hoping a long weekend away with result in a much-needed return to winning ways.

“I am looking forward to the game more knowing we are travelling down there today instead of having an early start tomorrow,” he said.

“It will be good to get the lads away, it should be good for team spirit and Stan and I will know how they are preparing.

“Hopefully we can go down there and get a good result. We need to start winning matches.

“Wednesday was one of those nights where it didn’t really fall for us. I wouldn’t say we missed any sitters, it was more frustrating than anything.

“We know we need to be winning our home matches if we are to start climbing the table.”

Wright, meanwhile, piled the praise on goalkeeper Paul Walker after he made a couple of stunning saves to help preserve the point in midweek.

The joint-manager added: “Paul has a lot of quality. He is a shot stopper and he will always make saves like.

“We are fortunate to have such a good goalkeeper but at the same time, it must be frustrating for him that he has to keep picking the ball out of the net.”
