Chris Plummer insists Corby Town have every right to feel confident ahead of tomorrow’s (Saturday) home clash with Histon in the Blue Square Bet North.
But the Steelmen manager has warned his team they can’t expect anything as they look to open up a 12-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone.
The Stutes currently sit in the final relegation spot with Corby nine points clear of them following their last-gasp 2-1 success over Boston United on New Year’s Day.
And Plummer is hoping his side can follow that up with another home victory as he continues to target a top-half finish.
“I don’t think you can expect anything in any division but we will certainly be aiming for three points on Saturday,” the Corby boss said.
“You look at the games against teams in and around you as being the ones that you need to win, particularly at home where our form has been good.
“We will be feeling confident that we can get the three points that will keep us in touch with the teams just above us. Our goal is to get into the top half of the table, that hasn’t changed.”
Plummer, meanwhile, is targeting a good haul of points in the rest of this month ahead of what he described as a “tough” February.
“I do look at the fixtures and we have a few games coming up with those that have been re-arranged,” Plummer added.
“And then February is looking quite tough for us so it is important that we get the points now to ensure they are on the board ahead of a tough month.”
Corby’s two games which were postponed over the Christmas period have now been re-arranged.
They will take on Solihull Moors at Steel Park on Wednesday, January 23 (7.45pm) while the trip to FC Halifax will now be on Tuesday, March 12 (7.45pm).
