Paul Malone believes the good point earned by Corby Town at Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday will look even better if they follow it up tomorrow (Wednesday) night.

The Steelmen are straight back into action in the Blue Square Bet North as they get the chance to move out of the bottom three when they take on Droylsden at Steel Park.

And centre-half Malone believes if he and his fellow team-mates show the same attitude they did at the weekend then a third successive home win could be on the cards.

Corby have suffered just one defeat in five matches since Chris Plummer took over as manager with their latest return being a 2-2 draw in Lincolnshire.

And Malone said: “It was a tough game.

“To be honest, we were probably a bit surprised to go 2-0 up because they battered us early on but we showed how dangerous we can be on the break and the strikers did their job by putting the ball in the net.

“We were disappointed to concede a couple of goals but Gainsborough are one of those sides who will probably be knocking on the door of the play-offs.

“What we have to do now is turn what was a good point into a great point by following it up with a win at home.

“There just seems to be a lot more confidence in the squad.

“We have been getting a few good results and we are moving in the right direction.

“But we have to stay realistic. We had a bad start to the season and we have started to turn it around.

“This is a big week for us with a home game tomorrow and then the FA Cup on Saturday.

“We have shown we can go and match a decent side on their own ground and now we have to show the same attitude against Droylsden.

“We have done okay against the sides in and around us and if we perform to our best then we will have a great chance of getting three points.”
