A better second half display on Tuesday evening from Corby Town was not quite enough as their second league game of the new season ended in a loss.

Spalding United scored either side of half-time before a deflected free-kick from Ollie Brown-Hill brought Corby back into the game late on.

2-1 to the Lincolnshire side is how it stayed and the attention of manager David Bell and his team now turns to their FA Cup tie at Dereham this Saturday.
