Steve Kinniburgh insists Corby Town will “prepare as normal” ahead of their trip to Carlton Town tomorrow (Wednesday) night.

The Steelmen’s are set to head to Nottinghamshire for the re-arranaged match in the Evo-Stik League South on the back of two wins in a row after they claimed a 3-2 success at Stocksbridge Park Steels at the weekend.

Should this evening’s game go ahead, Corby will have the chance to move to within four points of the play-off places.

And, despite there already being doubts about the match being on following the arrival of the cold weather and snow, caretaker-manager Kinniburgh insists it is business as usual.

“We will prepare as normal, just like we would for any other midweek match,” he said.

“Obviously the weather is having its say at the moment but we will be preparing for the game going ahead until we hear differently.

“If it is called off then the boys will be in on Thursday night and we will turn our attention to Saturday (a home game with Kidsgrove Athletic).

“We had a good win at the weekend against a team who were before us at the start of play.

“That’s two victories in a row and it has left us with plenty to play for and plenty of confidence so we are looking forward to the next game whenever it is.”
