Corby Town joint-manager Andrew Wilson insists the overnight stay ahead of tomorrow’s clash at Truro City is the only way to “prepare professionally”.

The Steelmen squad will travel down to Cornwall tomorrow afternoon for their longest trip of the Calor League Premier Division season.

And, despite the lengthy 614-mile round trip in front of them, Wilson believes there are benefits to it.

“We will head down there tomorrow and it is the only to prepare properly and professionally,” he said.

“It is a good chance for me and Tommy (fellow joint-boss Wright) to get in and around the lads a bit more.

“We have had a few comings and goings in the squad and a trip like this can always be good.

“They can get to know each other a bit more and it can be used as a chance to build relationships.

“It should be a good exercise as far as team bonding and spirit are concerned.”

But Wilson insists no-one within the Corby squad will be allowed to forget the main aim for the long trip.

“We want the team spirit to be right, of course we do,” he added. “But our main target, like with any game, is to win it.

“The long journey home on Saturday night will be a lot easier and shorter if we have got three points with us.”

The Steelmen should include their most recent signings in the squad for the game after Port Vale duo Wilson Carvalho and Louis Greenway-Tambini joined on loan ahead of last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Chippenham Town.
