Truro City assistant manager Wayne Carlisle says the club's recent run of good form has been down to changes he and boss Steve Tully have made.
City are unbeaten in their last eight games in National League South and are five points off the play-off places.
"We took stock after the Oxford City game and realised it was a different league and more challenging," he said.
"Since then we've changed a few things, we've changed our tactics both home and away and we've changed personnel."
The club have won three and drawn five of their last eight league games, but Carlisle wants to see more of the draws turned into wins as they prepare to host Margate on Saturday.
"If we had picked up more points in the last couple of games against Whitehawk and against Gosport we'd have been sitting in the play-offs and scratching our heads wondering how we got there," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.
"We've picked up plenty of points for a newly-promoted team and hopefully that will continue."
