Tommy Wright is hoping the “frustrating” wait for Corby Town’s first away win of the season will soon be over.

The Steelmen head to Stourbridge in the Calor League Premier Division tomorrow (Tuesday) night having returned from the mammoth trip to Bideford at the weekend with a 1-1 draw.

On the face of it, a point was a good return against a team that is yet to taste defeat in the league so far this season but there was some disappointment in the Steelmen camp after they created a number of good chances before Nabil Shariff finally earned them a draw with 11 minutes to go.

It means Corby are still without a victory in six away matches in all competitions this season.

And while joint-manager Wright admits there is frustration in the camp, he is confident the wins on the road will come.

“We were disappointed it wasn’t more at the weekend and that is an indication of where we are,” Wright, who came on as a second-half substitute on Saturday, said.

“We have come away from the team sitting in second in the league disappointed that we haven’t won the game.

“It feels like an away win is getting closer and it is a bit frustrating. We looked pretty solid at Bideford, which is pleasing.

“But we were perhaps not as clinical as we have been in front of goal. But we are not worried. We are sure it will come good for us on the road.”

It is set to be another tough test tomorrow night after Stourbridge, highly fancied to be up there at the end of the season, ended Poole Town’s unbeaten record with a 5-2 home win on Saturday.

And while Wright insists Corby will respect tomorrow’s opponents, he knows there will be no fear from his team.

“We are in decent form ourselves,” he added.

“We never really fear anyone but we respect everyone and it will be no different against Stourbridge.

“We will be fully prepared for the game and we will know all about them. Hopefully we can produce another good performance and get the right result.”
