Manager Tommy Warrilow praised new signing Nathan Green after Tonbridge closed to within four points of the Blue Square Bet South play-off places.
Left-back Green, who has joined from Billericay, made his debut as Angels moved up to ninth with a 1-0 home win over Havant on Tuesday.
It was Green’s corner that was handled by Ed Harris, leading to Frannie Collin’s 28th-minute penalty winner.
Warrilow (pictured) said: "I’d been monitoring Nathan since we drew 3-3 at Billericay in September and decided the time was right to bring him in.
"He can play left-back or left-wing. He’s hungry, strong, has loads of pace and a great left foot. As a young lad there are things to work on but he’s a real menace and it was a good debut."
Angels take on Maidenhead at Longmead on Saturday with Warrilow insisting there’s no reason why his side can’t make the play-offs.
Tonbridge are still only five points off second-bottom but the manager is looking up rather than down.
Warrilow said: "Three or four clubs have stolen a march but the rest of us are in with a shout and that’s why it’s so important to stay positive and keep banging the drum.
"Look at Basingstoke, who came through as the surprise package last season and reached the play-offs. There’s no reason why we can’t do that."
