In their current position - eleven points clear with seven matches remaining - each Moseley game assumes more significance than the last. Promotion, if not within touching distance, has lifted her skirt and fluttered her eyes in the direction of Billesley Common.
Yet amid all the talk of 'each game as it comes', 'no I in team' and 'many a slip 'twixt league and lip', one of their number is going for a very personal achievement and it's nothing to do with Andy Binns's 200th club appearance against Redruth this afternoon.
Having scored four tries in Moseley's 39-24 win at Harrogate a fortnight ago, wing Nathan Bressington is a repeat performance from equalling the club's season record of 18, set by James Aston in 2003-4.
The former Stourbridge and Pertemps Bees man does not expect the mark to be reached against the redoubtable Cornishmen today - they have one of the best defences in National Two - but in his own words: "I'd be lying if I said it hadn't crossed my mind."
It is an example of the confidence Moseley take into each game, particularly at home where they have not been beaten in the league and have allowed just Henley and Waterloo to escape with a loss bonus.
With 14 crossed lines to his name Bressington is four away from Aston and three from his own personal best posted during half a season at Stourbridge a couple of years ago.
"It would be nice if I could break it but I'm not too fussed about it at the moment - ask me at the end of the season. Jimmy has not mentioned it. Knowing him he probably hasn't realised - he's quite a quiet character like that," Bressington said.
And then he slips into party line. If Moseley put as much work into managing their next seven opponents as they do the rising tide of expectation, they'll be long gone come Easter.
"I would rather be remembered as being part of the team that went up rather than for breaking the record but not getting promotion. That wouldn't be much good to anyone would it?"
It's a fair point. Although the coaching staff would never admit it in open conversation, this season is all about gaining promotion, whether that means finishing first or second it doesn't matter. Third, however, isn't an option and personal targets must be subverted to the wider cause.
And having overcome the biggest hurdles by beating nearest rivals Waterloo home and away and sharing the series with Esher, that cause is well advanced. Only Barking away on April 8 looks even remotely daunting.
So with a programme including appointments with four teams in the bottom half of the league, Bressington could be forgiven for assuming his team mates will produce more than enough opportunities for him to raise the club benchmark in a big way.
Yet today's visitors have conceded the third fewest points in level three and the 25-year-old knows the current Moseley vintage are rather more pragmatic than last year's crop.
"We are not going to go out there and entertain because there is too much at stake," he said. "With the position we are in, everyone wants to beat us.
"Would I like us to be more open? Yes and no. It is nice to get on the score-sheet but if I can't and we win - then I'm still happy.
"We have got a more clinical side and are more professional on the pitch. It might have taken a bit of flair away from last season but it is a fair price to pay for where we are now."
By this stage last season Moseley were either ripping teams to shreds with fly-half Ollie Thomas opening up gaps in midfield, or getting bullied up front and losing. Neither is true now and that's probably why they are top of the league.
For his part Bressington smoulders on his wing rather than burning brightly as he did last year and if one were being ultra critical he could be accused of existing on the periphery of some games.
Yet it has served both player and team reasonably well. Ian Smith's men will surely be promoted won' they?
"I don't even want to hear about the P word. It's not something we talk about it training and I have never heard Ian Smith mention it once," Bressington said.
"The players do talk about it and what it might be like in National One but who knows what is going to happen? For the time being it's just important that we keep winning."
The likelihood of that happening today will be enhanced by the return of Thomas at ten having recovered from a lingering knee problem.
Also back in the side is hooker Dean Bick, who is tracking Bressington's scoring feats all the way with 11 of his own, and Mark Evans on the blindside.
Greg Macdonald - who started at Claro Road drops out of the squad having picked up a knock and prop Ben Buxton serves the final match of his six week ban.
