BEN Davies wants his Chester teammates to carry the momentum generated from Tuesday's Lincoln City fightback into tomorrow's home clash with Grimsby Town.
Davies was one of the chief architects of the midweek salvage job that saw the Blues recover from a 2-0 half-time deficit to snatch a 2-2 draw.
The result capped a satisfying opening week for the Blues, who won 1-0 at former manager Mark Wright's club Peterborough United on Saturday.
Davies got the ball rolling in midweek with a 50th-minute strike and delivered a man-of-the-match performance as City claimed an unlikely point through Michael Branch's injury-time penalty.
And the Wales semi-pro midfielder attributes the result to the 'never-say-die attitude' new manager Keith Curle has injected into the squad.
'Since the day Keith Curle's come in, the thing he's drilled into us is belief,' said Davies. 'Against Lincoln, he proved it worked.
'At 2-0 down last season, you'd go into half-time and think 'I don't know if we are going to get back into this'. But this season I've got belief we'll always score goals.
'We created a load of chances and could have scored more. We've more or less got the right formula in place.'
Looking ahead to tomorrow's clash with the Mariners, the 24-year-old added: 'We've played well in our first two games but it's on to Saturday now, and the last two results will mean nothing if we don't do well against Grimsby.
'It's onwards and upwards and we've got to play like we did in the second half against Lincoln. We want to go unbeaten for as long as we can.'
Davies's sentiments were echoed by midfield partner Stewart Drummond, who blasted home City's winner against the Posh on Saturday.
The former Morecambe man is looking forward to playing a more central role in Curle's plans after being used out of position under previous boss Ian Rush last term.
'There's a different mentality to what there was last season,' said Drummond. 'There's a lot more optimism around the camp. The gaffer's brought a lot of that in and training has changed a lot from what we did last season.
'I'm playing a bit more central now. I do like to get forward so hopefully I'll be looking more towards getting about 10 goals, rather than five.'
While Drummond thrives in his central midfield role, Davies has been getting to grips with a new challenge on the left flank.
He revealed Curle asked him to play there at London Road in a bid to confuse Posh boss Wright, whose scouts had been following City throughout pre-season.
Davies featured on the left against the Imps again in midweek and the versatile star is happy to go on playing there.
'As long as I'm playing in the team, I don't mind where it is,' he said. 'The gaffer likes me to get into channels so hopefully I can stay in the team and keep building.
'I've just been impressed with the gaffer and Ganns (assistant boss John Gannon) since they walked through the door. I like the way they want us pass and play football. Hopefully we can keep passing and play teams off the park.'
