Sutton Coldfield assistant manager Steve Hinks believes a first win in eleven games will give his side the confidence to get their season going.
Saturday saw the Royals pull off a shock 1-0 win over 5th pace Farsley Celtic.
Sutton currently sit bottom of the EVO-STIK Premier Division after a difficult start to the season which has seen them win just four games in 23 league games.
Steve Hinks said: “Saturday was a massive win. We had gone eleven games without a win and no one fancied us to get anything at Farsley. But football can do strange things and we thoroughly deserved the three points yesterday. We need to build a run of results now to get us out of trouble.
“With only one team going down because of the re structure next season, we firmly believe that we can be good enough not to be the bottom team at the end of the season.”
Hinks believes the winter period will be key to survival with very winnable games coming up.
He said: “Every game is important now. We know we have to get results when we are at home and get what we can when we are on the road.
Hinks added: “Our 3g pitch will help because we will have fewer postponements and will play our games when we are scheduled to play them rather than finish the season with fixture congestion that could be a factor for other teams around us.
“Our next home games are against Stalybridge, Marine, Witton and Halesowen on New Year’s Day. We need a decent haul of points from those games and if we manage that, the table could look very different by January.”
Sutton next face a home match against Stalybridge Celtic this Saturday, kick-off at 15:00pm
