Aylesbury FC boss Steve Bateman said the club has taken ‘a step in the right direction’ ahead of today’s home match against Kettering Town.
The Moles ended their nine-game losing run with a goalless draw against fellow strugglers North Greenford United last time out.
It was also new boss Steve Bateman’s first point since taking charge just over two weeks ago.
He said: “We have kept our first clean sheet for two months so that is definitely a positive.
“It is good to stop the rot first and foremost, and hopefully that will be a further boost to our confidence.
“The key is to build on the result and hopefully we can use it as a platform going forward.”
Bateman added it was a great relief to finally end the club’s losing run.
He said: “It is pleasing to finally get the monkey off our back because our winless run was becoming something of a concern.
“It was frustrating because we were playing well and not getting the rub of the green but hopefully that will change now.”
Bateman said: “Kettering are one of the bigger names in the league .
“They have had something of a fall from grace in recent seasons so we certainly won’t take them lightly.
“We will have to work hard to get a result but hopefully we will be able to make our home advantage tell and we can really kick start our season.”
