The Pitmen will be looking to put Saturday’s last gasp defeat at Rushall Olympic behind them this evening when they return to action against Corby Town at Keys Park.
It was of course only last season that we faced Corby, with them also being relegated from the National League North, both matches ending in draws. The game at Keys Park in August 2015 saw us race into a two goal lead before falling 3-2 behind, eventually securing a point.
Manager Liam McDonald was hoping for his side to bounce back with a victory, following the defeat at Rushall, as they prepare to host Corby at Keys Park tonight.
“This evening against Corby Town we need to make sure that we bounce back, albeit against a tough side.
“They are a side that are always in the game but perhaps haven’t had that rub of the green; you only have to look at Saturday when they lost at the death against Ilkeston.
“We know that we are playing the right way, and we are good at home, if we can put in a positive performance then that is all that I ask for that each to a man and as a team we do that.
“If we can achieve that then we will suddenly be on 25 points after 14 games and that I feel will be good at this stage.”
The only injury concern is Tristian Dunkley who suffered a knock to his shoulder during the game against Rushall on Saturday. Calum Flanagan meanwhile is available for selection again after suspension, while Michael Williams is also back in contention after missing out at the weekend due to a family engagement.
The game kicks off at the usual time of 7.45pm with Strikers Bar being open before and after the fixture.
