Corby gave us a lesson in battling for everything. Every loose ball. Every aerial challenge and every way to spot a possibility of scoring a goal. To say that Dean Lyness was kept busy was an understatement whereas Chris MacKenzie had very little to do apart from one excellent shot in the dying stages from the critically injured Kyle Storer (left).
He was the victim of a well aimed elbow that gave him a broken cheekbone but he stayed on the pitch to the very end mainly because he had no choice due to all the subs having been used. He will now be out for up to eight weeks but news today was that at least it was a clean break and should pose no real problems.
Lee Vaughan also went off during the second period Saturday because of a dead leg probably due to his three week lay off due to suspension. He should be ok for the replay.
Corby will be without the former Rushden man, Andy Burgess, and also Aynsley Mcdonald.
With home advantage, in front of hundreds of Scotsmen, Corby will feel that they could win this tie and give themselves a prestigious trip to Bristol Rovers in the 1st round in two weeks time. The Harriers will feel that they can't play as badly as they did on Saturday so, hopefully, they'll be making more of an effort this time.
There's too much at stake not to.
