Taylor Charters is keen to take confidence from Tuesday’s win over Blyth Spartans.
Macaulay Langstaff opened the scoring on the 10-minute mark, before Adam Campbell and Charters added to a derby day victory.
“I’m buzzing for the boys,” the 20-year-old said.
“Especially after the Fylde defeat, it’s a great reaction and the fact it was a derby makes it even better.
“It was the best thing we could’ve done to bounce back, and hopefully we can pick up some confidence from it and go on another run.
“There were probably some nerves at the start, but the lads kept calm and Macca’s goal settled things and we went from there.
“We know with the forward’s we’ve got, we’re always going to score goals, but keeping tight at the back and getting a clean sheet is also a massive positive.”
Having only entered the fray four minutes beforehand, Charters claimed The Heed’s third of the night after firing home from Greg Olley’s pass.
It was the midfielder’s first senior league goal, after netting past Hartlepool for Carlisle United in September in the EFL Trophy.
“Coming on that late, the gaffer just spoke to me about shoring things up,” he explained.
“We were 2-0 up and just needed to see out the game defensively, but when Greg put me through there was only one thing on my mind.
“I’m buzzing to score – I probably could’ve had a couple at Hereford on my debut, but getting the one tonight will hopefully set me up for a few more in future.”
The Heed travel to Alfreton Town at the weekend, looking to cement their stance at the top of the table.
“We’ll just rest up on Wednesday and get straight back into it,” Charters said.
“We’ll watch the Blyth game back and analyse our own performance – we’re always trying to improve.
“The lads are feeling good after the win, so hopefully we can go out and do our usual job again on Saturday.”
