Chris Plummer doesn’t believe there is curse hanging over Corby Town at Steel Park.

The new Steelmen boss is hoping to get off on the right note in front of the club’s fans when he takes charge of the side for the first time since being appointed as the permanent replacement for Ian Sampson.

Corby host Colwyn Bay later today (3pm) and they will be looking to pick up their first home points of the season having finally claimed a much-needed opening win of the campaign when Plummer – then as caretaker-manager – guided them to an impressive 3-2 success at Workington.

The Steelmen suffered 14 defeats on their own patch last season and have been beaten at home three times already in the current campaign.

But Plummer has laughed off any suggestion of a curse and he is hoping the fortunes can change.

“You need to win your home games and we will do all we can to get some points on our own ground,” he said.

“I am not superstitious, I wasn’t here last season and I don’t believe there is a something hanging over the ground.

“What has happened here in the past is nothing to do with us.

“There is only Paul Malone and Tom McGowan who were here so we shouldn’t really be affected by that form.

“We will be looking to perform well in front of our own fans and hopefully that will happen on today.”
