Delighted Bedfont Green boss Dennis Bainborough claimed this week he has the squad to go on and clinch the Combined Counties Premier League title.
Bainborough's men snatched a 1-0 win over Camberley on Saturday thanks to a late goal from Tom McCarthy, and this coupled with defeat for morning leaders Epsom sent Green top of the table for the third time this season.
It was midfielder McCarthy's first start for more than two months as Bainborough switched from a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 formation for the first time this season.
And Bainborough (right) says the fact he can bring in people like McCarthy while leaving the likes of last year's leading scorer Adie Barrance and Craig White on the bench is what gives him the confidence Green can keep their noses in front this time.
He said: "We've got a really strong squad now.
"The players I had on my bench on Saturday would get into any side in this league.
"I bought the boy McCarthy in and changed to 4-4-2 because Camberley had slaughtered us early in the season at their place with two good wingers, and to have played 4-3-3 would have given them too much room.
"I'd have been up to be shot at if it hadn't worked but we got the result and then it was brilliant to find out Epsom had slipped up."
McCarthy repaid his manager's faith, settling a game of few chances 10 minutes from time with a low shot after good work from Chris Henry, another restored to the starting lineup by Bainbridge.
Green lead the table by one goal on goal difference from Epsom both having played the same number of games.
Bainborough knows he can't afford any slip ups.
He added: "Whenever we've been top in the past sides around us have had games in hand but it's a different story now.
"The destiny of the title is now in our hands but we can't dropped silly points to mid-table sides like we did before Christmas."
This Saturday, Green travel to Guildford City before hosting Cove three days later.
