Aldershot goalkeeper Jamie Young believes the spirit of Kevin Dillon's side will carry them to the top of League Two.
The Shots are unbeaten in their four league games so far and face a Northampton side on Saturday who are still looking for their first victory of the campaign.
Young said: "Goalkeeping is very black and white, you either have a spectacular game or a bad one, so to get a positive outcome from the contributions I make is pleasing for me.
"We've got a really strong base and people don't realise that - and I hope they don't because then we can play effective football without anybody knowing and there's a good spirit that comes with that solid base, so hopefully we can just carry that on and keep doing what we're doing.
"I think it's a very tight league in League Two and it goes to show the state of the game because there are a lot of good players drifting down because of things such as budgets being very tight at bigger clubs.
"The best thing for us is that we've had a very solid start, so I think we can take some good positive knowledge from that."
