Ealing Trailfinders boss Mike Cudmore said his side wanted it more after they held on for a bonus-point win in a nail-biting match against Nottingham.
Full back Andrew Henderson got two tries, with Phil Chesters and Ronnie McLean-Dents also crossed the line for the home side.
However, in the 79th minute Nottingham fly-half Matthew Jarvis hit the post with a conversion, which would have tied the game.
The victory cuts the gap at the bottom of the table between Ealing and second from bottom Jersey to only three points with two games to play.
Cudmore was pleased his side's performance and the commitment they showed in getting the win.
"I said to the boys before the game we had to deliver a platform, but most importantly we had to want it more than the opposition," he said. "I thought we did that for most of the game."
Ealing captain Mat Evans backed-up his director of rugby in saying it was the team's will to win which saw them through.
"We were quite ambitious this week, we said not only we wanted to win but with a bonus point too," Evans said.
"In the squad there was an absolute belief and desire that we would come away with five points."
The skipper praised his backs, after the Green Army got the try bonus-point for the second game in a row:
"If the forwards can produce the ball for them the backs are very dangerous in attack. You saw it against Nottingham that given any sniff of a chance they'll score."
Things could have been so different for Ealing after substitute winger Harrison Lee-Everton went over in the corner for Nottingham in the final minutes, leaving Jarvis a conversion from the left touchline to tie the scores
Fortunately for the home side. the former Connacht out-half hit the left-hand upright.
Evans said he was "disappointed" when Nottingham scored. "We were ahead by a significant amount with about 10 minutes to go and they scored two tries, and that's quite dull from us really."
"It was frustrating but ultimately we didn't feel at any point that we would lose the game", the skipper added.
