Steve Kinniburgh will urge his Corby Town players to “do the right things and do them well” as they gear up for an intriguing month in the Evo-Stik League South.

After winning six games in a row under the caretaker-manager, the Steelmen’s fine run was ended last weekend as St Neots Town battled back from 2-0 down to beat Corby 3-2 in the first qualifying round of the FA Trophy.

The Steelmen now have their full focus on the league and they are nicely placed in sixth spot after five victories in a row.

They take on Belper Town at Steel Park tomorrow (Saturday) before they face back-to-back clashes with Frickley Athletic and Cleethorpes Town - two teams who are currently in the top five.

A trip to struggling Gresley FC rounds off the month, by which time Kinniburgh expects to know in which direction Corby’s season will be heading.

“We have been going well in the league over the last five games having won all of them and we have four important games coming up this month,” the caretaker-boss said.

“Two of them are against teams above us in the top five and the other two are against sides a bit further down the table.

“So it is important that we set out our game plans and make sure we are ready for each challenge.

“By the end of the month, we will know exactly where we are.

“We are going into this weekend feeling pretty good. It was disappointing to lose in the Trophy last weekend but, having analysed the game, we caused real problems for a team from a higher level. We have to take the positives from it and move on.

“I believe the squad we have here is definitely good enough to be at the top end of the table.

“It’s just a matter of making sure we do the right things and do them well.”
