Faversham Town boss Ray Turner admits his side are lacking confidence after seven games without a win.
Town faced a tough test on Saturday when they travelled to leaders Lewes and lost 3-0.
They host second from bottom Molesey on Saturday giving Turner’s side a chance to get back to winning ways.
Turner said: “There’s a lack of confidence in the team. They are not used to winning so it becomes a bit of a mental block.
“We are looking forward to two home games and to build on our recent performances.
“We have reset our targets in the dressing room and it’s important we start winning games of football.
“It will be nice to get the results for the home supporters and it’s an opportunity to get something out of the games.”
Turner believes the scoreline against Lewes did not reflect his side’s performance as they conceded twice in added time.
He also praised the performance of his side against the best team in the Bostik South.
Turner said: “A lot of credit has to go to the lads. Unfortunately, the final scoreline was not reflective of the performance.
“We dominated for much of the second half. One of their goals was a penalty, which no one thought was a penalty. We got the balance right between defence and attack.
“It was good experience for a lot of the young players and I’m sure it will do them good.”
Experienced forward Mark Lovell also steps into a new role as player-coach at the club after a short absence from the team.
Turner is looking forward to Lovell being able to pass on his experience on his first step towards management.
He said: “The balance has not been quite right between youth and experience. He has spent a bit of time with his family and is now looking forward to his new role so he can contribute on and off the pitch.
“He will still be available to me as a player, though.”
