Chris Plummer wasn’t entirely happy as Corby Town’s penultimate pre-season friendly ended in a 1-1 draw at Stamford on Wednesday night.

And the Steelmen boss has admitted the club will need to bring in “one or two” more new faces as they get ready to complete their preparations for the new Calor League Premier Division campaign, which starts against Burnham at Steel Park on Saturday week.

Corby take on Skrill North side Bishop’s Stortford at home in their final warm-up match this Saturday and Plummer knows there is still work for him and his players to do following the clash with the Daniels.

Paul Malone headed Corby in front in the first half but the hosts fought back to draw level after the break.

“We started pretty well and that is pleasing because that has been something of an Achilles heel for us in the past,” the Corby manager said.

“We should have scored more than the one goal but Stamford shaded the second half and deserved their goal.

“The game has given us an indication of where we are.

“I wasn’t entirely happy with the performance to be honest. We were decent for half-an-hour but we have seen some weaknesses that need working on.

“And I think it also showed that we need to bring one or two more in. That is something we will continue to work on.”
