Hayes & Yeading United must turn their continued nomadic status into a positive, according to boss Paul Hughes.
The club has confirmed the safety certificate needed to return to the Skyex Stadium is still in application process and it could be another six weeks before they can move back in.
Hughes though is no stranger to footballing adversity, having battled through administration to achieve success at Luton as a player.
He believes United are close to having a solid foundation in place, but claimed in the meantime they must use obstacles in their path as extra motivation.
“Sometimes these situations can have an adverse effect, but my time at Luton tells me they can be a positive too,” he said.
“During the second period of administration at Luton none of us were getting paid, but we were all in it together. We came through that and won League One the following season.
“It’s toughest really for the fans to come through this transitional stage because what they want is to be at home winning games and to be top of the league.
“Everybody is working hard because they know the value of having a home when you can start making money rather than forking out for someone else’s pitch.
“We are developing a solid foundation now and getting home will be a springboard for the club.”
There was further frustration at their temporary home at Beaconsfield on Sunday when they were held to a goalless draw by fellow strugglers Cambridge City.
Failure to find the net was again the bugbear for United, who face another crunch game at Holloways Park on Sunday against basement boys Cinderford.
Hughes admitted he is in the market for a striker, claiming they need that elusive bit of luck in front of goal.
“We are looking to bring other forwards in and have made enquiries, but at this stage of the season with their teams in the top six or seven they are happy to stay where they are,” he added
“With better technique, we would have had more shots on target so that needs to improve. We need something out of nothing, which perhaps we don’t even deserve, to get the confidence going.
“But we moved up a place with the point and Cinderford gives us a chance to move out of the bottom four with still games in hand over Cirenceste,r so it is moving in the right direction.”
Meanwhile, a Michael Weiss hat-trick earned Hayes a 3-0 League Cup win over Basingstoke Town on Tuesday night.
