Confidence is always key in football and the only way to get it is by performing well and picking up victories.
We’ve looked at the last four games for the hottest and coldest teams in the Vanarama National League - is your side included?
The Coasters have been simply sensational recently. After a disappointing draw with Chester, Dave Challinor’s side have beaten Guiseley, Macclesfield and Maidstone. The 6-0 thumping of the leaders was the result of the season so far and they’re now up to sixth in the table.
What a difference a few weeks make. From apparent relegation certainties to just four points from safety - the Moors have given themselves a huge boost. Victories over Barrow, Maidstone and Woking have been key and they also picked up a welcome point at leaders Macclesfield.
Another club that have turned their fortunes around. New boss Andy Hessenthaler has got the Spitfires firing. They’ve won three in a row, albeit against struggling Guiseley, Torquay and Maidstone. Still, they’re now comfortably mid-table and looking up at the top seven.
A defeat to Fylde has been the only blot on Bromley’s last four games. The other three - against Leyton Orient, Ebbsfleet and Torquay - have all been victories. Neil Smith’s side are on the verge of the play-offs and are definitely in the promotion mix.
Wins over Torquay and Hartlepool have got the Dragons back on track after two draws against Barrow. They’re back up to fourth now and could go second if they win their game in hand. Dean Keates’ men look to be hitting top form at just the right time.
Four straight defeats have seen the Gulls fall to the bottom of the National League table. They’ve scored just once in those games and now sit 11 points adrift of safety. They’re going to need a Solihull-like run if they have real hopes of survival.
Another club struggling in the bottom four, the Lions are nine points from safety themselves. They have games in hand but you’ve got to win them and Paul Cox’s men have picked up just a solitary point from their last four matches - and that was against Chester.
The Stones are still sitting comfortably in mid-table but any hopes of a play-off push have slowly faded in recent weeks. Now they must ensure they aren’t dragged into a relegation battle. One point from their last four games has not helped.
