Aldershot club captain Darren Jones says they don’t fear anyone in Npower League Two, and have dominated every game they’ve played this season.
“We’ve dominated every game. Even in our three losses, we were the better team. We can beat anyone in this league,” he told BBC Surrey.
“We aren’t scared of anyone after our results against West Ham and Carlisle. We’ve got to remain confident and work hard in every game.”
The Shots made it through to the fourth round of the Carling Cup for the first time in their short history, coming from behind to beat Npower League One side Rochdale 2-1 thanks to a spectacular volley from Danny Hylton 12 minutes from time.
They have gone on a run of eight games unbeaten since their win against the Hammers in the opening round of the competition.
But both manager Dean Holdsworth and Jones have said the Shots can do better.
“Our home form will come, and if we keep winning away we’ll be in that top three or four before you know it,” Jones added.
“We want to go undetected and sneak in there. Hopefully by Christmas we’d be in the top three, and we could take it on the New Year.”
Aldershot are currently 11th in the npower League Two, six points behind leaders Morecambe.
Despite their good run, they have only won one game at the Recreation Ground this season, compared to their three wins away from home.
