Harrow Borough entertain Horsham on Saturday fully aware they have set themselves new defensive standards.
David Howell's men stunted free-scoring Tonbridge Angels last weekend with new signing Tobi Jinadu forming a solid central defensive partnership with skip-per Wayne Walters.
And after keeping the likes of Angels hot-shot Carl Rook quiet Harrow will be looking for more of the same, or even a shutout, when they take on the Hornets.
"The Tonbridge result gave our defence and goalkeeper a huge boost," said Howell. "I now have a tough decsion to make for the next game as Danny Leech is available again after serving a one match ban. Do I keep Tobi in after he did a fine job last weekend or do I bring back Danny, who had played all season before his suspension?"
It is a welcome selection poser for Howell and he will be mindful of making the correct decision against Hor-sham, a team he thinks possess plenty of goals.
"We always have good games with Horsham and there are usually plenty of goals in them," added the manager. "They try and play good passing football but, by their standards, have had a slow start to the season.
"They have had some problems with their ground and have had to play at Worthing, and they have lost a few good players. But it will be another tough game."
Howell believes his team are starting to marry good performances with results now and has urged them to keep it going ahead of the busy festive period.
"The lads may well have raised their game against Tonbridge after being so hard done by in the 1-0 defeat at Ash-ford Town, but we are maintaining a level of consistency in our performance.
I want that to continue against Horsham and if we can achieve that then results will favour us."
Howell will cut a lonely figure in the dug out on Saturday because his right hand man, Ken Charlery, has flown to
St Lucia for two weeks to attend the funeral of his father, who died last week after a long illness.
