Head coach Jimmy Adams has declared there is still more to come from his new-look Kent side.
The county followed up the impressive draw at Yorkshire in the opening game of the season with an innings and 120-run win against Northamptonshire to continue their bright start to the summer.
He said: "It was not only the fact that we got the result (against Northants) but the manner in which we got it was especially pleasing.
"You take the results and the individual performances that come with it but we have all accepted that we are on a journey here that is going to take a while to get to the level that we all feel we are capable of.
"I don’t think we are quite there yet, it’s still very much work in progress but the signs are certainly there and most importantly it’s the players’ attitudes that are right."
Kent, second in the LV= County Championship Division 2 table, take on Gloucestershire at the St Lawrence Ground on Thursday with what’s set to be an unchanged side.
It represents the first real opportunity for Kent fans and members to see their new-look side in action and Adams, who was quick to point out that Gloucestershire are also in decent form after their 33-run win against Hampshire, said the players were relishing their first run out at Canterbury.
He said: "We have all been looking forward to getting our home campaign started and it will be a new experience for a few of us.
"Everybody is looking for results and we are no different. We are taking on a side that also come into the game on the back of a win at the weekend, so they will be confident.
"We’ll prepare for it as best we can and hopefully we can play some good cricket."
