Stuart Holden is hoping Bolton Wanderers' win over Wolves will be a 'stepping stone' ahead of a tough trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
Bolton ended a run of five Premier League games without a win in midweek as Daniel Sturridge marked his debut with a last-gasp winner at home to Wolves.
The three points kept the Trotters in the mix for European qualification and Owen Coyle's side next face UEFA Champions League aspirants Spurs on Saturday.
Holden feels his team-mates will take heart from the success over Wolves and the 4-2 home triumph against Spurs earlier in the season.
"We haven't had the best of results at White Hart Lane but we played really well against them at the Reebok earlier in the season, so there's no reason why we can't go and get the points," the midfielder told the club's official website.
"It's a new month now and we are looking to start with a clean slate. The Wolves win is a good stepping stone for us. I think it was the bit of luck that we needed.
"It comes back to that team spirit that we have here. We kept plugging away like we did when we got late results against Blackburn and Stoke.
"We showed that spirit and hopefully Wednesday's win will give us confidence to push on."
Tottenham's squad has been hit by injuries, but Holden is still anticipating a difficult afternoon at White Hart Lane against Harry Redknapp's side.
He added: "They have got players out but, when you look at the squad that Harry has assembled, they have got so much talent to draw on.
"They have so many options, pace on the wings and I think they pose a really strong threat even though they are missing some important players.
"It will be tough because they showed at Blackburn they are playing well and riding high."
