Andrew Wilson has conceded he wouldn’t mind if Corby Town’s Calor League Premier Division campaign ended right now.
The Steelmen head to Biggleswade Town tomorrow (Saturday) on the back of a morale-boosting performance, if not result, against play-off chasers Cambridge City at Steel Park on Wednesday.
Corby were beaten 2-0 but hit the crossbar twice and were a touch unfortunate with the final outcome.
Wilson and fellow joint-manager Tommy Wright have had to deal with a depleted squad in recent weeks following the departure of a number of first-team players due to the cut in the budget and the ongoing off-field troubles at the club.
But despite him hoping the season ends sooner rather than later, Wilson insists he and Wright are still thinking about the next campaign, even though things at Steel Park remain uncertain.
Asked is he wished the season was coming to an end now, Wilson said: “Yes is probably the short answer.
“It is not nice and everyone knows what has happened.
“We are in a better frame of mind now than we were last Saturday (after the 2-0 defeat to Hungerford Town) because we weren’t good enough whereas against Cambridge we were very good.
“We are a lot more positive but the situation doesn’t change. It is what it is and we have to prepare for Saturday as best as we can.
“The season could do with ending quickly but we have a few games left and we will have a look at players for next season because Tommy and I are still thinking about that. I think that shows our thought process.”
Wilson, meanwhile, revealed the Steelmen are “unlikely” to be without winger Claudiu Hoban for tomorrow’s trip after he once again featured in Wednesday’s game with his new club Tamworth being without a midweek fixture.
Wilson added: “It’s very unlikely we will have Claudiu tomorrow.
“But Tommy and I will have to plan for that and come up with a team that is strong enough to get a result.”
