Wingate & Finchley face two more tough fixtures over the next week, but can take a lot of belief from their recent performances.
The Blues travel to Bostik Premier play-off rivals Met Police on Saturday looking to close the gap between themselves and the top-five.
Police hit a slump at the end of 2017, but have been able to arrest it this month and will pose Wingate with a touch challenge.
After the Maurice Rebak Stadium outfit have hosted the Surrey-based club, they then face the daunting task of visiting division leaders Dulwich Hamlet on Tuesday (January 23).
Wingate can at least go into the aforementioned contests with confidence.
Last weekend a penalty from Sean Cronin and a Rob Laney goal after the break earned three points at home to Harlow Town (2-0 win).
Wingate lost 1-0 on Tuesday at home to Billericay Town in the quarter-finals of the Velocity Trophy though, but can take heart from the loss.
