Ray Turner refused to get carried away despite Faversham moving into the Ryman League, Division 1 South top three.
Turner’s side reached their highest position of the season with a 2-1 win over play-off chasing Burgess Hill on Tuesday, having been frustrated by Corinthian-Casuals in a stalemate on Saturday.
The Lilywhites boss said: "We should be sitting here with a few more points on the board but you’d hope over the course of the season that things would even themselves out.
"We have crept up to third and managed to keep the points coming.We’ve lost one out of six and two in 11 and it’s our consistency that is important."
Town face a shoot-out with fourth-placed Leatherhead at Salters Lane on Tuesday night but first face 15th-placed neighbours Herne Bay on Saturday.
Turner said: "We want to beat the teams around us. It was good to put some more points between us and Burgess Hill, who are going to be there or thereabouts in terms of the top-five, on Tuesday.
"The teams are all battling against one another. A few of the pack are playing against each other this week too. We have to hope they continue taking points off one another and we can keep ticking over.
"The perfect way to go into the Leatherhead game would be with three points against Herne Bay but it will be a difficult game. They lost at the weekend but they had been on a good run before that.
"They have good players and are a good side. We’ll need to be at our best to get anything."
