Chris Plummer’s Corby Town will make the familiar journey to the Glassworld Stadium in Cambridgeshire on Saturday afternoon, as they face Histon for the third time in four weeks.
The two sides were drawn together in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup with Budweiser, and following a tight 1-1 draw at Histon, the Steelmen secured their place in the next round with a 2-1 victory on home soil thanks to goals from Josh Moreman and Ryan Semple.
Corby sit just two points ahead of their hosts, however have two games in hand over Dennis Greene’s men. The Stutes are currently experiencing a difficult run, having won just one of their last ten matches, and will be hoping to build on draws against Droylsden and Solihull Moors in recent weeks.
In the corresponding Blue Square Bet North fixture last season Delroy Gordon’s 31st minute header was cancelled out by Harri Hawkins second half effort, as the sides drew 1-1. In fact, the last three fixtures between the clubs at the Glassworld have ended with this scoreline.
Corby Town will be eager to build on Wednesday’s 3-2 win over Gloucester City at Steel Park when Ryan Semple, Carl Piergianni and Sam Ives secured all three points.
Despite their recent FA Cup exit at the hands of Hendon, the Steelmen have still lost just two of their seven league fixtures under Chris Plummer so far.
In form striker Josh Moreman will be hoping to celebrate the double honour of winning both the Blue Square Bet North player of the month and ASDA Player of the month awards for October this week, by adding to his impressive haul of 7 league goals so far this term.
On loan Derby County defender Stefan Galinski will return to the Corby Town squad, having completed his one match ban. Carl Piergianni is not available however, as he serves the first game of his three match ban following the sending off against Hendon.
