Corby Town boss Tommy Wright knows his team must start climbing the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division quickly..

And the Steelmen boss and the club’s fans will be hoping that process starts at Steel Park tomorrow (Saturday).

Wednesday’s 2-1 home loss to Stourbridge – Corby’s third defeat in a row – has left the Steelmen struggling at the wrong end of the table.

They take on bottom side Ilkeston at home and Wright is hoping his team can produce a swift response from their midweek setback.

The Steelmen boss said: “We were leading a game of football and it got spun on its head. I couldn’t see it coming and that’s the worst thing about it.

“It has happened and we need to regroup. We have another game here against a team that is below us in the league and they will be fighting for their lives as well.

“That’s us with three defeats on the spin so we have to put that right quickly.

“We are trying everything. We are spending time on the training pitch and in team meetings and we are trying to work out what is going wrong at the moment.

“We had a team meeting on Monday because I wanted answers as to why, if I am backing them and I am being backed, then what is going wrong?

“I don’t feel like I can really do any more. We should have won that game of football on Wednesday.

“We are not far off being a good team but we have to start climbing this league soon otherwise we are going to give ourselves too much to do.”
