Matt Gardiner warned that the tests will keep on coming thick and fast for Kidderminster Harriers after they downed Curzon Ashton on the first day of the campaign.
The reds rocketed in six goals at the Tameside Stadium on their way to a fine win.
The Harriers management team were pleased with the start, but there was no getting carried away at the final whistle.
Head of Coaching Gardiner spoke to the press and insisted that although it was good to get off the mark at the first attempt, the challenges keep approaching – starting on Tuesday night when Brackley Town visit Aggborough.
Reflecting on the game he said: “Curzon are a good team and you can see that they try and play the right way.
“We’ve said all along that we are trying to be competitive in every game and that’s what we’ve tried to do today.
“We moved the ball well and it’s nice when the goals come off but it is very early days and we have a very tough game on Tuesday.
“It’s nice to get off to a start, but that’s all it is.
“We’re pleased with the way it’s gone but it is only three more points and we have a lot more tests to come and that starts on Tuesday.”
