Dereham manager Matt Henman believes Tuesday night's victory over Norwich United can act as a springboard for a strong finish to the season.
The Magpies beat the Planters 3-0 to move up to 11th in the table, with bottom side Wivenhoe visiting Aldiss Park on Saturday.
Henman said: 'There is a group of teams in mid-table and we really want to be top of that by the end of the season. We've now got a run of four games in 10 days and we're looking to win all of them. We set ourselves a target of 20 points from the last nine games and Tuesday night was a good start.
'We've not had much momentum all season, but Tuesday night's win sets us up well for Saturday. Wivenhoe have been struggling all season, although they have picked up a bit of late. But it is definitely a game that we would look to win now we've got everyone fit.'
The only concern now for Henman is maintaining a balancing act, with the reserves and Under-18s both in contention for league honours. 'It's a case of managing the younger players and making sure we keep putting out strong sides at all levels,' added the Magpies boss.
