Tyrone Barnett says last weekend's 2-1 win at Wycombe has filled Macclesfield with the belief they can be a force this season.
The Silkmen recorded their first win of the campaign at the sixth attempt thanks to fine goals from Barnett and Colin Daniel.
"We've been playing well this season and just not getting the results," said Barnett.
"Saturday proved that we can score goals and we can go to highly-rated sides and win the game.
"That will only help us build confidence and to relax a bit more in games."
