GEORGE Green believes it is only a matter of time before Wembley find themselves at the right end of the Combined Counties Premier table.
The Lions assistant manager saw his side run out comfortable 4-1 at Chessington & Hook United on Tuesday night to move off the bottom.
Four defeats from their first five league fixtures had seen them drop into deep trouble, but the Vale Farm club have been in good form in the cups and are starting to turn the corner.
They return to FA Vase action this Saturday at home to Spartan League side Hatfield Town in the second qualifying round.
A good cup run can work wonders for confidence and club coffers and Green does not buy into the idea that Wembley’s involvement in these games has hindered their league progress.
“No I think it’s more of a bonus for us really because winning these kind of games will give us a kick start to continue in the league,” he explained.
“I haven’t got a doubt that we’ll get out of there [trouble]. Once we get our league back on track again I think we’ll be up there, towards the end of the season, definitely pushing,” he said.
“When you play in the league everyone knows each other. A lot of the teams know the pattern of play that we do, so they kind of counteract us, but that is something we need to get over. In the cup we’re playing teams that we don’t know.”
Tatsuya Fujioka bagged a hat-trick in a 6-0 demolition of Potton United to book Wembley’s place in this weekend’s second qualifying round.
And the classy midfielder is hoping for more of the same against Hatfield.
He said: “This is a cup game and we focus. We just focus every match.
“Team spirit is good. I like it here. My team-mates are good and the ground is good here. I like this team. It’s very important that we keep going.”
