Corby Town joint-manager Andrew Wilson admitted that Saturday’s win at Biggleswade has “lifted the mood” at Steel Park.

Jorrin John’s strike proved to be the difference between the two sides and Wilson, who has been left exasperated by the off-field happenings at the club, was happy with the outcome.

He said: “After what’s been happening it was good to get the three points.

“With so many first team players gone it has been our aim to remain competitive on the field and I’m glad that has been the case.

“The win has given everyone a bit of a lift and it always helps to better the mood.”

Recently, Wilson has stated that he, fellow manager Tommy Wright, and the players have got to battle through the remaining fixtures - they have five left - before taking stock.

And he had words of praise for those on the field, adding: “Full credit to the players.

“There are plenty of opportunities for those who are here to stake a claim for next season and the attitude has been very good.

“It’s easy to feel sorry for yourself after a defeat, especially when everything else isn’t going that well, but they’ve got their heads down and the win on Saturday should give us a bit of an incentive for the last few games.”
