Tommy Wright expects Corby Town’s Calor League Premier Division clash with St Albans City tomorrow (Wednesday) night to be postponed.

The Steelmen are yet to play this year and the heavy rain over the past few days have left part of the Steel Park pitch waterlogged. A pitch inspection is set to be held at 3pm tomorrow afternoon.

Should the game be off, Corby’s next action is due to be at Weymouth on Saturday, although their midweek Red Insure Cup home tie with Tiverton Town was also called off.

Wright said: “I had a look at the pitch on Sunday and it was very wet.

“It is just that section in the middle which is causing problems still. The water isn’t running away from it.

“With the rest of the rain we have had since the weekend, I think it will be a struggle to get the game on but I am sure everything we will be done to try to make it happen.

“We did some circuit training with the lads at the weekend to have a look at their fitness levels.

“And the plan, should the game be off, is to train again on Thursday with Saturday’s match in mind.”

It has been a busy 24 hours for the Steelmen as they confirmed permanent deals for Aman Verma and Greg Mills before announcing two more signings with Cogenhoe United striker Courtney Herbert and defender Nathan Stanton both arriving at Steel Park.

Both new boys will be in line to make their debuts when Corby are next in action.
