Truro City ended their recent poor form with a 2-1 win at Concord Rangers to move up to fourth place in the National League South table.
Matt Jay and Shane White gave City a 2-0 lead at half-time before Ben Greenhalgh pulled one back.
The result put City two points ahead of fifth-placed Hemel Hempstead.
Crucially, it gave them a five-point cushion between themselves and dropping out of the play-off places, with two games in hand on their nearest rivals.
City had won just one of their previous five matches as they bid for a second successive promotion via the play-offs.
