Manager Dave Frecklington says everyone must keep their feet firmly on the ground at Matlock Town, report the Derbyshire Times.
Injured players have been returning as the club extended their unbeaten run to eight matches following their 4-1 win at Nantwich.
Matlock then won their first cup game of the season as Shirebrook were blown away in the first half when Frecklington’s troops scored all of their five goals in a 5-1 verdict.
“Expectations have gone through the roof but we must all keep our feet firmly on the ground,” said Frecklington as he prepares for Saturday’s rearranged home clash with Bamber Bridge.
“At Nantwich there was loads of character and our team spirit came shining through. Half way through we had to change the way we played as we pressed really high up the field and were camped in their territory.
“We found quality in the final third, in fact we were ruthless in both boxes, defending really well and scoring some great goals and to win 4-1 against a very good side like Nantwich shows the quality we have.”
