Tommy Wright feels the clash at Hereford United tomorrow (Tuesday) night has turned into a “very big match” for Corby Town.

The Steelmen put last Wednesday’s 2-1 home defeat to Slough Town behind them with an impressive 2-0 victory at Chippenham Town on Saturday as Spencer Weir-Daley scored both goals to make it six in his last four games.

Hereford have struggled in the early stages of the Southern League Premier Division campaign, having been blighted by financial problems following a double demotion after they were relegated from the Conference last season.

And Wright knows just how important the Steelmen’s game there tomorrow is, especially with them being without a match at the weekend with their scheduled opponents, Biggleswade Town, still being involved in the FA Cup.

“We don’t have a game next Saturday so our focus is on Tuesday night because that has turned into a very big match for us now,” the Corby manager said.

“Consistency is the key from our point of view and it’s clear that in this division any team can beat another if they turn up.

“(Leaders) Poole have obviously started very well and any team that wins 10 out of 11 games at the start of the season deserves respect.

“They will be tested more than they have been, I am sure about that. But we just need to concentrate on ourselves.”
