Frustration was the feeling for Corby Town after a second successive draw at Steel Park in the Calor League Premier Division.

The Steelmen again squandered a lead as Stuart Hendrie put them in front against Biggleswade Town, only for Brett Donnelly to level things up two minutes later.

It finished 1-1 and left Corby in 13th place in the table ahead of this weekend’s mammoth trip to Truro City.

And joint-boss Andrew Wilson said: “We won a lot of games on the bounce at home so it is disappointing that we are not able to continue that.

“It is roles reversed a little bit. We have won the last couple away from home and then we have been frustrated on our own ground again.

“It’s difficult to put our finger on what is the problem right now.

“The set-play for their goal didn’t help. We gave ourselves a platform to build on but we have switched off to allow them to get the corner and then we have not dealt with it well.

“From then on, they have had a couple of chances and we were lucky not to give away a penalty, equally I think their player should have been sent off in the first half.

“It is frustrating that we haven’t gone on to win the game. Tommy (fellow manager Wright) said it last week, it would be nice to nick a game 1-0 and for it to be a bit scrappy.

“Some of our football at times was very good. It is just frustrating that we have not gone on to nick a second goal to give us a victory and the boost we need.

“There isn’t a lot wrong but we need to keep working on it.”

Wilson, meanwhile, says the club with review their current loan signings at the turn of the year.

Port Vale youngster Wilson Carvalho impressed against Biggleswade, his club-mate Louis Greenway-Tambini came off the bench and Greg Mills, who is loan from Barrow, played the full 90 minutes.

Wilson added:“They don’t have to go back, if we want to renew them we can do and you can have a loan for the rest of the season from January onwards. We will review it when the time comes.

“I thought Wilson was great threat for us against Biggleswade. He was a good out-ball for us and he has the ability to beat a man on the inside and the outside.”
