Chatteris Town must be more consistent if they are to progress.
Manager Ashley Taylor saw his side earn a point at Cambridge City Development last Saturday, extending their unbeaten run to four games thanks to Gary Smith’s 87th-minute equaliser.
But the Lilies boss believes maintaining that winning trend will be his team’s toughest test.
“One of our biggest challenges will be consistency”, he said.
“We can improve all over, but I know as the season goes on, we will improve and get stronger.
“It’s only the start of the season and I definitely won’t be getting carried away.
“We have so much more work to do.”
Town twice came back from behind to avoid a third Kershaw Premier Division defeat of the season, which after two straight losses in the first two games, Taylor is appraising of his side’s reaction.
“It’s very pleasing to see, but the challenge now is to be consistent with what we do.
“After a tough start, I was very pleased with how we reacted, winning three games from three.
“The first two results were affected by player availability and injuries.
“We are now seeing some of these faces return, but we are still missing three very important players in Stuart Porter, Jack Whiting and Lee Barnett.
“We have showed that we have strong character within the group, which is going to be crucial as it won’t always be sunshine and rainbows this season.
“Team-wise, the togetherness has impressed me and the group has a fantastic team spirit right now.”
Before the campaign began, Taylor’s main objective was promotion, which this run of form may prove that Town are worthy contenders for a Step Six place.
However, having already beaten one of the two teams he expects to be in and around the top spots, it does not seem easy to predict who will gather all the plaudits.
“I’m not one to make any bold predictions.
“Yes we want to try and get promoted, but there are some really strong teams in this league and it’s a lot more open than last season.
“I thought the toughest test was Lakenheath at home as after losing our first two games, the pressure was on to get a win.
“We will just continue working hard and see where it takes us.”
Next up for Chatteris, who lie third in the league standings, is a trip to Linton Granta this Saturday (September 16, 3pm), who currently sit second-from-bottom.
