Tom Platt believes Boston United's 'improved' squad have the ability to cope with their hectic National League North schedule.
Saturday's 3-2 win over AFC Telford was the first of what could be nine games in 29 days as the Pilgrims squeeze in the fixtures postponed due to their self isolation period.
But the midfielder is looking forward to the challenge, confessing that playing games is '100 per cent better' than training in midweek.
"It's going to be really quickfire but that's what you want, to be be out there playing," said Platt, who believes a ‘tough’ pre-season helped the players return from their isolation period with good fitness levels.
"If you get on a good run you can accumulate points quickly.
"We're always confident and we want to build on last year. A game at a time, three points and let's see where it takes us."
As action comes thick and fast, United will host Guiseley this evening (KO 7.45pm) before heading to Southport on Saturday (KO 3pm) and Bradford Park Avenue on Monday (KO 7.45pm).
But Platt is adamant United have the tools at their disposal to deal with three games in less than a week after an impressive summer rebuild.
"We did well last year, had a really good squad, and we've improvbed it in good areas and we're looking really strong," said Platt, last season's Players' Player of the Year who is currently in his second campaign with the Pilgrims.
"We've got the right lads in as well, a really good dressing room.
"We've not been together long but we all get on really well and there's a really good team spirit."
With Brad Abbott departing, Platt and Andi Thanoj have had to build up a quick understanding with incoming midfielders Paul Green and Connor Dimaio.
"Obviously, I've never played with either before," Platt added.
"They're both excellent on the ball and both work hard. It's been really good so far.
"I think my job's to stop the other team playing and I can give it to these lads who can go and win the game for us.
"They're good going forward and I've enjoyed it so far."
