Tommy Wright is ready to go “back to the drawing board” in a bid to arrest Corby Town’s alarming slide down the Vanarama National League North table.

Having started the campaign well, the Steelmen are now on the a run of 10 games without a win in all competitions and their season hit a new low at the weekend when they were thrashed 5-0 at North Ferriby United.

It has left them hovering above the bottom three going into a two-week break from action on the pitch due to their early exit from the FA Cup.

In the aftermath of Saturday’s loss, Wright said he will “rebuild” his squad during the enforced break and he is determined to make the necessary changes to help turn things round.

“I have told the boys what I am going to do, I will never lie to them,” the Corby boss said.

“Everything I have said to them now and in the past is true and it will happen.

“There will be a lot of phone calls being made and a lot of approaches going in.

“I am going to take it back to the drawing board and I am going to surround myself with players who are hungry.”

Wright, meanwhile, says he won’t shy away from making “harsh decisions” and he believes he still has the backing of the vast majority of Corby’s fanbase.

“The fans have been great to me and they will know more than anyone that I don’t like losing,” he added.

“I will sort this out and I will make the hard and harsh decisions. That’s the nature of the beast.

“I have a job to do and the truth is, I am going nowhere.

“Unfortunately, that will not be the case for some players but, given the position we are in, we don’t have a choice. We have to sort this out.”
