Andrew Wilson believes Corby Town and Stourbridge are in line for a “very good game” in the Calor League Premier Division tonight (Tuesday).

The Steelmen head to the west midlands on the back of a four-match unbeaten run with the latest being a 1-1 draw at unbeaten Bideford at the weekend.

But joint-boss Wilson knows his team are in for another thorough examination this evening as they take on a Stourbridge side who ended the only other unbeaten record in the division on Saturday when they thrashed Poole Town 5-2.

Wilson said: “They have just done that to Poole and it wasn’t just a win, it was a very good win for them.

“But we are in reasonable form ourselves. We can go in with plenty of confidence because we are unbeaten in four matches and we have just taken a point at a very tough place and we have come away believing we deserved more.

“It looks like two in-form sides going at it tonight and it should make for a very good game.”

Wilson, meanwhile, insists he and fellow manager Tommy Wright are happy with the way things have gone in the early stages of their reign at Steel Park.

Corby have a big FA Cup third qualifying round clash with Trafford to look forward to at the weekend, although they are still awaiting their first away success of the season.

“I know people are making a bit of the fact we haven’t won away yet but we aren’t worried,” Wilson added.

“If you look at it since we have been in charge, we have drawn two away matches, lost one and won all our home games. The defeat at Banbury was disappointing but we know what went wrong and we have looked at addressing that.

“We feel we have improved the balance of the squad by bringing the likes of Lee Hendrie, Stuart Hendrie, Kalern Thomas and Nathan Fox in.

“It is still early days for us but we are happy with what has happened so far. There is always more work to do and the next task to get something from the game tonight, it won’ be easy but we are looking forward to it.”
