Mark Peters has urged the Corby Town players to focus solely on tomorrow’s (Saturday) home clash with Bashley and nothing else.

The Steelmen’s caretaker-manager oversaw a second win in a row at Steel Park in the Calor League Premier Division on Wednesday night as Josh Moreman’s first goal of the season secured a 1-0 success over St Neots Town.

Now they are chasing a third against a Bashley side who are yet to record a victory this season and sit bottom of the early standings.

But Peters, who is making a good case for himself to become the next permanent manager with seven points from a possible 12 since taking charge, just wants to see the Corby squad put “another good shift”.

And he hopes they can continue to lift the spirits of the supporters after a good outing in midweek.

“You can only do what you can do and play the teams that are in front of you,” the caretaker-manager said.

“We have had some tough, close games and nothing has been easy.

“The players are playing for themselves and that is the most important thing because no matter what happens, they have to look after their own futures at this point.

“And at this moment in time, they are doing the best they can. I can’t ask for any more than that.

“The biggest thing for me was that there was a slightly bigger crowd on Wednesday and they got behind the boys.

“There were some positive comments and chants coming from the sidelines and that is what we want.

“We want to play some good football, we are trying to get results and we are getting them at home, which is great.

“Obviously, we will need to look at the away form but for the moment we have to concentrate on Saturday and make sure we put another shift in.”
