Corby Town boss Chris Plummer had mixed feels after seeing his team held to a 2-2 draw at already-relegated Droylsden.

Gary King’s double, which made it five goals in four games for the striker, helped the Steelmen twice come from behind at the Butchers Arms as Plummer’s men made it four games without defeat.

And while the Corby manager had been looking for more from the clash, third-from-bottom Colwyn Bay could only manage a 2-2 draw at Bishop’s Stortford meaning the gap between the Steelmen and the relegation zone remains at nine points with another game gone.

Corby head to another relegated side Hinckley United tomorrow (Monday) night and Plummer said: “Obviously we went up to Droylsden looking for three points.

“And certainly for the first 25 minutes or so we were camped in their half but just couldn’t find the goal we needed.

“Then we have given away a penalty on the stroke of half-time and we have gone in trailing.

“Overall, a draw was probably a fair result and the most important thing is that we have got something from it and we are unbeaten in four games.

“And when you look at the other results, no damage has been done. Another game has gone and we are a step closer to being safe.”

Plummer also paid tribute to frontman King, whose impact since joining from Spalding United has been crucial in the last two weeks.

“I always felt we were creating chances,” the Corby boss added.

“But we just weren’t finishing them off, we have needed that person to come in and score the goals.

“Gary has done really well. Both of his goals at Droylsden were in that area between the penalty spot and the six-yard box where most goals are scored.

“He has been a big positive for us in the last few games and we hope he can keep it going.”
