Corby Town claimed their first win of the season with a superb 3-2 success at Workington.

It was the first game at the helm for caretaker-manager Chris Plummer following the shock resignation of Ian Sampson last weekend following five straight defeats.

But that dreadful run was ended in style in Cumbria.

The Steelmen went in front on 27 minutes through Josh Moreman after a Paul Malone through-ball but they were pegged back within six minutes as Jonny Wright headed home for the hosts.

However, Corby put themselves in a great position with two goals in four minutes at the start of the second half.

Debutant Stefan Galinski, who is on loan from Derby, put them 2-1 up and then Avelino Vieira opened up a two-goal lead after burst through and beat several defenders before rounding the goalkeeper and scoring.

The Steelmen held the 3-1 lead until 15 minutes from the end when Jordan Connerton headed home, shortly after Moreman hit the post.

But Corby were comfortable after that and fully deserved their win in front of a crowd of 394.
