Opportunity knocks for the Corby squad

Corby Town return to action this evening (Wednesday) when they take on Peterborough Sports in the preliminary round of the Southern League Challenge Cup at Steel Park.

Both clubs are unbeaten in all competitions so far this season and both are among the early leaders in the Evo-Stik League South Division One Central.

But Steelmen boss Steve Kinniburgh looks set to make a number of changes to his starting line-up with the team due to return to league duty on Saturday after their Emirates FA Cup exploits last weekend.

And Kinniburgh has challenged those who get their opportunity tonight to grab it with both hands.

“We have assessed everything and everybody and we are obviously looking at what we have coming up over the next few weeks,” the Corby manager said.

“There are a few boys who are battered and bruised so we will have a look at everyone and then pick the strongest squad we feel we can.

“There are some boys who have been sitting on the bench or who have been out of matches recently who will get their chance.

“It will be an opportunity for them to show what they can do and try to make sure they are in the squad for the weekend.

“It’s a squad game and we want that competition for places so if players get their opportunity it’s up to them to take it.”
