Tommy Wright knows Corby Town are heading into one of their biggest games of the season when they go to AFC Telford United tomorrow.

The Steelmen remain at the foot of the Vanarama National League North, despite a 0-0 draw at Tamworth last Saturday which ended a run of three successive defeats.

However he is backing his players to go to the New Bucks Head on Saturday and boost corby towntheir own hopes of avoiding the drop against a Telford side who have played their way up the table with a string of impressive displays and results.

“You look at Telford and they are a big football club, for the neutral you don’t really want to see them going down,” the Steelmen boss said.

“They have great facilities, big support and they have some money as well. They are a club who should be playing at this level, if not higher.

“I think there are other teams around them who are more at threat and I said a little while ago that they would have too much to go down and the last few weeks have proven that.

“But it is going to be a massive game. It will be hard-fought and they will be thinking that if they can beat us then they’ll almost be safe.

“From our point of view, we need to go there and try to get more points on the board. It is set up nicely.”
