Andrew Wilson believes his Corby Town players showed they were “up for a fight” as they claimed a battling 0-0 draw at Truro City.

The Steelmen made the long trip to Cornwall on Friday and while a time-consuming weekend didn’t produce any goals, joint-manager Wilson was content at the end of it.

There were few chances for either side as the strong wind and rain made conditions tough.

And Wilson said: “I don’t know what the weather was like back home but the wind make things very difficult for both sides down there.

“And, when we were playing into it in the second half, we had the rain coming at us as well.

“It was very hard out there and if there was going to be a goal it would have come from a mistake or a moment of individual brilliance.

“We didn’t make too many mistakes and we were well organised throughout the game. We want to win every match but when you are involved in one like that, I think you will always take a point.

“You could see that our players were up for a fight and that was very pleasing.

“It wasn’t a day for getting the ball down and playing. We battled hard and came home with something to show for it.”

The goalless draw made it three stalemates in a row for the Steelmen ahead of a tough run of four home matches, which start against Banbury United at Steel Park on Wednesday night.

Wilson added: “It is frustrating because if we had won against Biggleswade last Wednesday then the point at Truro would have looked even better.

“But we will move on and we have four tough matches coming up. We will certainly know more about ourselves when they have been played.”
