Home form has breathed new life into Ebbsfleet’s survival bid and the side are now braced for their toughest run of fixtures all season.
The Fleet’s next three games are away to Grimsby, Kidderminster and Wrexham – the top three sides in Blue Square Bet Premier.
Manager Liam Daish, pictured, has seen his players rediscover their confidence in recent weeks and he believes they could spring a surprise or two on the road.
He said: "We’ve got some difficult games coming up, all away from home, but we go into those games knowing we’re not in a bad run of form.
"We’ll go to places where there’s pressure on other clubs, a different kind of pressure. Supporters and directors of these clubs will probably look at us and think ‘that’s three points in the bag against Ebbsfleet’ but we might have something to say about that."
Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Hereford lifted Daish’s side off the foot of the table. It was a crucial victory on a night when fellow strugglers Barrow and Nuneaton also won.
Daish said: "We’ve got seven points out of nine at home and we’ve been unbeaten. There’s a bit of form there which we want to keep going."
Without a game this weekend, the Fleet boss has a chance to scout Tuesday night’s opposition when Grimsby visit Dartford in the FA Trophy on Saturday.
