Derby day hero Dave Tarpey insists Hampton & Richmond Borough never lost faith in themselves during their four-month winless streak.
The Beavers failed to record a single league win between October and February before winning 4-0 at Dartford last Saturday.
And just like the proverbial bus, after waiting so long, a second win came along straight away when Hampton won 2-1 at Staines Town on Tuesday night.
Tarpey said: “We always had faith in ourselves. We knew we had the ability all along, it was just a case of getting our confidence back.
“ We played brilliantly against Dartford, and it was a shame we had two games postponed after that, but we managed to keep the momentum going into the Staines game.
“ We felt we owed them one after they beat us heavily twice last year. We wanted revenge, but tried not to be overcome too much by that, and to just go out and play our natural game.”
Hampton now have their tails up going into a tough week when they face two Blue Square South play-off chasers – away to Dover tomorrow and at home to Chelmsford on Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, former Hampton hero Graham Harper has come out of retirement to return to the club and make up the numbers while the Beavers battle a series of injuries.
