Ray Turner wants his Faversham side to focus on discipline in the closing stages of games after they conceded a late equaliser on Saturday.
His side looked set for victory until a 92nd minute goal from a Whyteleafe set-piece denied them three points.
Turner was not happy with the result but wanted to concentrate on the positives for his team to take away from the Bostik South game.
The Town boss said: “It was very disappointing. We have conceded late for a couple of games now and it has cost us a few points.
“It was disappointing to concede a goal so late but I want to concentrate on the positives.
“Against Chipstead it was a penalty and this time it came from a free-kick set-piece. We need to focus on discipline in the final minutes.”
Faversham have made a habit of conceding late goals in recent games with a penalty in stoppage time costing them victory in their match with Chipstead on November 18.
Turner’s side were limited to just a 12-man squad at Whyteleafe after Mark Lovell and Carl Rook had to pull out at the last minute.
The manager praised how his side dealt with the late changes and how they were disappointed not to take all three points.
He said: “It kind of sums up the season with losing two players at the last minute.
“I had to change my plans late on but the players took it all on board. They were disappointed with not taking three points.
“We played very well. All it did was limit my options in bringing people on. Hopefully for the next games I will be able to have a full squad bench.”
Faversham, who travelled to Thamesmead on Wednesday, host Greenwich Borough on Saturday. Greenwich are flying high in fifth but have failed to win in their last five league games.
Turner added: “They are two difficult games and we haven’t been in the best of form.
“Greenwich are one of the favourites for promotion this season so it will be tough.”
