Cambridge City continue a run of fixtures against those looking to be in the promotion mix when they travel to Corby Town tomorrow afternoon.

The match is a re-run of the opening day of the season, which ended in a 1-1 draw. Josh Oyinsan opened the scoring that day with response coming from Elliot Sandy.

City go into the game in upbeat mood following the Boxing Day win against Bedford Town. The Lilywhites snatched all 3 points courtesy of late goal. That win was the first for Robbie Nightingale’s men since victory over Kempston Rovers in early November.

Corby go into the game in fine form having won four out of their last five outings. On Boxing Day they cruised to a 3-0 victory over Coleshill and they currently sit third in the table looking to close the gap on both Bromsgrove Sporting and Peterborough Sports.

City boss Robbie Nightingale has an injury concern over Adam Watkins. James Hall will be looking for a start after featuring as a substitute in recent games, whilst Lewis Whitehead could also come into the reckoning as he looks to return to full fitness following a recent injury.

Corby Town – This Season

As mentioned above, the Steelmen opened up their campaign with a draw over City. They went through September winning 7 games in all competitions including an 8-1 demolition of North Leigh. They were eliminated in the FA Cup at Stockport in early October and their league form also suffered a blip with a point against Bedford and Dunstable Town. They also lost at Peterborough Sports and Thame United in the run-up to December, but will be looking to continue their good form and round off 2018 with a win over City. They currently have 36 points from their 17 league games played.

A return to winning ways on Boxing Day, and the prediction panel are confident that it will continue tomorrow – despite a difficult trip.

Stephen Harper-Scott:

“This will be another tough game for City. However, after recent performances I can see them coming away with a victory. I am confident – and will go for a 2-0 win”.

Harvey Dunn:

“It was a great win on Boxing Day, and even more sweeter with a last minute goal. It’s good to be back to winning ways, but it will be another tough game against Corby tomorrow. They have an impressive home record, but we are also proving to be good against the top teams this season. I reckon we can build on our performances against Bromsgrove and Bedford and although it won’t be easy I think City will finish the year on a high so I am going for a 2-1 win”.
