Tommy Wright is hoping Corby Town can produce a positive response from their first defeat of the season when they head to Gainsborough Trinity tomorrow (Saturday).
The Steelmen suffered their first loss of the Vanarama National League North campaign on Bank Holiday Monday as they went down 3-1 to early pacesetters Solihull Moors.
Wright knows there are things for his players to work on, particularly in the defensive department following that defeat.
But the Steel Park boss remains in an upbeat mood and he is expecting his players to come out firing when they travel to Lincolnshire this weekend.
“In general, we have always bounced back positively from defeats and that’s what we want this weekend,” the Steelmen manager said.
“Any team can beat another and I think that’s been clear from the start of the season.
“I say it week in, week out about us but if we turn up and play to the levels we are capable of then we will always be a threat.
“We have been beaten by the league leaders who have spent a lot of money and were able to rest four players on Monday, such is the depth of their squad.
“We held our own for the vast majority of the match so I am not downbeat about things.
“It took a very good team to beat us but, having suffered just one defeat in the first seven matches at a higher level, I think it is a massive achievement for the club.
“There were things to work on from Monday and we will have addressed all that by the time Saturday comes around.
“The goals we are giving away are more down to concentration and discipline than anything else, we definitely need to tighten things up.”
