Ryan Peters thanked the Magpies’ fans for their ‘amazing’ support throughout Saturday’s 3-1 win over Hastings United at York Road.
They may have been playing opponents from three divisions below them in the Isthmian League South East division, but Peters said they didn’t take them lightly as they wrapped up an impressive victory, their first in nine matches.
He added that he hoped the result would breed confidence after weeks of ‘negativity’.
“There’s been a lot of negativity, from outside, not inside,” he said. “And it’s about time that we changed that. It’s a positive result, a positive victory and now we move on to Woking.
“The supporters were amazing and there were quite a few West Ham fans here today as well. It made for a good spectacle, and we were comfortable from the off, despite them being a really good side.
“We’ll take it one game at a time, but we’ll go into both this week’s games looking for a victory and trying to put points on the board.”
The Magpies host Woking on Saturday evening, 5.20pm kick-off and Wrexham on Tuesday evening, 7.45pm kick-off.
The UK has voted to leave the European Union in yesterday's referendum - and while the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead fell into the remain camp, Slough voted to support a Brexit.
