Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade feels his squad is now looking strong enough to climb the League One table.
The Os have struggled with injuries this season, but French striker Jonathan Tehoue returned from a lengthy lay-off with a goalscoring cameo as a substitute in Saturday's 3-0 win over Exeter.
Add to that the emergence of rookie winger George Porter this term and Slade has suddenly found himself with options on the bench as he attempts to guide his side away from trouble.
"I had a strong bench and it was lovely to be able to send on Jonathan Tehoue and George Porter at the same time," he said.
"That was refreshing and something I've not been able to do all season. They both made an impact and that's fantastic."
