Spencer Weir-Daley continued his fine form in front of goal as Corby Town claimed a fine 2-0 victory at Chippenham Town.

The Steelmen got back on track in the Southern League Premier Division following their midweek defeat to Slough Town as striker Weir-Daley scored both goals to make it six in his last four matches.

Tommy Wright made one change to the team that was beaten by Slough on Wednesday with recent signing Elliott Chamberlain being handed his first start for the club while Liam McInally dropped to the bench.

Manager Wright was still missing because of injury while Ben Milnes sat out the second of a three-match suspension.

The Steelmen took the lead on 20 minutes when Weir-Daley’s low strike from 20 yards was too good for the home goalkeeper.

And the points were made safe just before the end of the game when Weir-Daley struck to finish off the rebound after Shane Byrne’s shot had come back of the woodwork.

The Steelmen will now be hoping to build on the victory when they head to Hereford United on Tuesday night.
