Lowestoft Town joint boss Ady Gallagher admits the Blues are still wary of being sucked into a relegation battle.
The Blues currently sit in mid-table but many more showings like the one against Gloucester last weekend could see Gallagher's men dragged back into the trouble.
Lowestoft's 2-0 defeat left them seven points above the drop zone and the Blues chief is demanding an improvement from his squad this afternoon when they take on Colwyn Bay at Crown Meadow (kick-off 3pm).
'Every time you feel you are getting away from danger you get sucked back in,' admitted Gallagher, whose side had registered back-to-back wins for only the second time this season before going to Gloucester. 'We can't take anything for granted at this stage.
'This is when teams start to really fight for their futures and it's the ones with the most quality that will get out of trouble. I'm confident we've got enough quality.'

'We are a much better side than we showed on Saturday and we've got to prove that again,' said Gallagher. 'We need to eliminate the memory of our last performance.
'We didn't get anywhere near the standards we have set in recent weeks. We got everything we deserved from the game – nothing – we just weren't good enough.'
Lowestoft hope to welcome back Curtis Haynes-Brown from a recent hamstring injury whilst Lee Smith will be available despite his red card last weekend.
