Lowestoft Town go to Metropolitan Police this afternoon with defender Sam Gaughran adamant the Blues will be in the promotion shake-up this season.
The Trawlerboys look to have shrugged off a poor start to the season and their win over Margate last weekend took them up to seventh.
After a summer of relative upheaval at the club when several big personalities headed for the Crown Meadow exit, the management team have produced a more settled side that looks capable of being in the promotion shake-up again.
'We've got too good of a squad not to be up there,' he added. 'We just need to go on a run and we know if we can do that then we will be right up there.
'We just need to make sure we get the mentality right for every single game and treat every game like it's a cup final. The consistency will come. We've got to start picking up points against the teams below us and not just turn up for the big games.'

Gaughran has once again established himself as one of the mainstays in Lowestoft's starting XI at the heart of the Blues' defence. However, it is the goals that he has added to his game this season that have really caught the eye.
'I always get bantered that I miss so many goalscoring opportunities so it's nice to score a few goals for a change,' said Gaughran, who notched his third of the season in the win over Margate.

'I'm going up more a lot more confident when we get a corner or a free-kick. I was probably going up before just to make a numbers up before, but now I'm going up there to try and score a goal.'
