Malvern Town's Luke Corbett: 'We can't afford to take Bromyard lightly'

MALVERN’s in-form striker Luke Corbett says his team must be at their best to beat Bromyard Town despite their lowly league position.

Corbett netted twice last weekend as The Hillsiders stretched their winning run to four games with a 2-1 win away at Bilston Town Community.

But with Malvern huge favourites to make it five wins out of five against 20th place and relegation threatened Bromyard at the HDAnywhere Community Stadium on Saturday (3pm kick-off), Corbett said Malvern must not take the game lightly or they could be punished.

“We have had a chat about the game and we won’t be taking it lightly,” he said.

“There’s no point looking at league position as teams don’t have the same team out every week so we will be looking to go out there and get a result.

“I’m confident we have what it takes to finish in the top five and you only have to see the form table over the last 20 games to see we are top.”

Corbett now has 13 goals in 13 games and, after telling the Observer last month he wanted to improve his all-round game, he feels he has certainly done that.

He said: “I don’t think I’m going to exceed one goal a game average, that’s a really good return, but my aim was to improve the rest of my game.

“My fitness is a lot better, my hold up play has improved and I’m working harder so I’m really pleased with that.

“I’m also getting to know the players better as the weeks go by so I know what they’re going to do and how they play so I’ve definitely come far since I joined.”
