Andrew Wilson is hoping the games keep coming for Corby Town as they look to get back to winning ways in the Calor League Premier Division.

The Steelmen finally played their first game of the year at the weekend but went down to a 1-0 defeat at Weymouth, courtesy of Luke Burbidge’s fine second-half strike.

It was Corby’s first game since the 2-0 home defeat to leaders Hemel Hempstead Town on December 28 and Wilson felt his team’s lack of action played a part in Saturday’s loss.

They are due to be back in action at bottom markers Bashley – a side who are yet to win at home this season – tomorrow (Tuesday) night.

And the Steelmen joint-manager said: “We want the games to come thick and fast now.

“We have been a bit Jekyll and Hyde recently, I think that is a fair assessment.

“We were much better in possession of the ball against Hemel than we were at the weekend but I did think we were a lot better when we didn’t have the ball against Weymouth.

“I genuinely think, with the style of football we like to play, that not playing games regularly hasn’t helped us.

“I have been a lot more disappointed when we have lost games than I was on Saturday.

“I didn’t think we deserved to win but, at the same time, I didn’t think we deserved to lose either.

“There are a few things that need some work and we will do that and make sure we are ready to go again at Bashley.”
