Corby Town striker Josh Moreman was delighted to send his side through to the third qualifying round of the FA Cup on Saturday thanks to another brace in the 3-2 win against Leamington.
Corby survived early and late scares from the visitors, but Chris Plummer’s side made their way into the next round of the cup and Moreman believes that is all that counts.
“They [Leamington] probably went into the game thinking they can win it, they hadn’t lost in over 20 games so it was going to be a tough game. In the last half hour of the game we were on top all the way through and we didn’t have any doubts in our minds that we weren’t going to win the game.”
The former Peterborough Blue Star man has scored six goals in all competitions this season for The Steelmen, and the pick of the bunch is undoubtedly his latter of the two at the weekend.
A completely solo effort from the striker wowed Steel Park and sent Corby into the hat for the third qualifying round.
“I took the ball all the way from the half way line and I thought to myself that I’m not going to pass this, I’ve ran to far so I carried on and hit it, hoping it would go in, and fortunately, it did.”
Corby will travel to Histon in a repeat of last season’s draw, but no matter who the opposition is, Moreman says he is always up for the challenge.
“We will take anyone on, it doesn’t matter who it is. We have a good chance at getting through; we have a good side here. We would have preferred a smaller team at home, but Histon isn’t too far away so we should still have a good crowd backing us there.”
