Lowestoft Town could be closing in on a play-off place but manager Ady Gallagher insists his side must keep their feet on the ground.
Six wins in a row have taken the Trawlerboys to within eight points of fifth-placed Tonbridge Angels, who have played a game more.
As their rivals have faltered, Lowestoft have found their form and victory at home to Folkestone Invicta this weekend could prompt fans to really start dreaming of another play-off campaign in the Ryman Premier.
Gallagher admits he has been keeping a close eye on the league table in recent weeks but knows other teams must continue to wilt under the pressure if the Blues to have a chance of making the top five.
'Footballers do it, managers do it - anyone who says they don't isn't telling the truth,' said Gallagher when asked how often he'd been looking at the league table recently. 'We are all aware that the points gap (to the top five) has been reduced.

Lowestoft's season looked like petering out after a poor run of form in January but with several first team regulars returning from injury, fortunes have dramatically improved.
'Having everyone available has been big for us,' added Gallagher. 'We've managed to tweak a few things in our training and in our shape as well and it has worked. What we've got to do now is keep doing those same things that have served us so well on this run.'
