Manager Mark Yates wants Kidderminster Harriers to look upwards and onwards after chalking up a second successive Conference victory.
Two goals either side of half-time from defenders Mark Jackson and Johnny Mullins proved enough to sink Scarborough 2-1 at Aggborough.
"The win now puts us in touch with the next batch of teams above us," said Yates.
The Seadogs had been slammed 4-0 in the FA Trophy a month ago but they survived until first-half stoppage time on Saturday when Harriers skipper Jackson pounced after keeper Leigh Walker fumbled a free-kick from debutant Johnny Harkness.
It was 2-0 on 50 minutes when Iyseden Christie's shot from another Harkness free-kick was blocked by Walker's legs and Mullins tucked home the loose ball. But David McNiven replied for Scarborough in the 73rd minute after
keeper John Danby parried Lee Fowler's drive to set a few anxious moments for the hosts late on.
Yates said: "It's going to take time for the lads to implement all the ideas I want them to, but I've told them to express themselves like they do in training.
"We started sluggishly, but we got better and better as the game went on and for the first 25 minutes of the second half I thought we played some great stuff."
Relegation-battling Tam-worth will consider appealing against England non-League newcomer Dave Bampton's red card after the midfielder was sent off for a second successive season at Dagenham & Redbridge.
Bampton, who has been called up for the National Game squad on Friday, was dismissed a minute from time in the Lambs' 2-1 defeat at Dagenham & Redbridge when he had been the victim of a reckless challenge by Paul Bruce.
Tamworth team-mate Scott Stamps and Bruce clashed and were both booked but Bampton was stunned when he was shown the red card.
Last season, Bampton was also sent off but then rescinded when it was discovered to be a case of mistaken identity.
Lambs manager Mark Cooper said: "We have taken a tape of the game from Dagenham and will study it. On the face of it, it looks as though Dave was harshly treated. The ref sent Dave off on the advice of his linesman who was 70 yards away."
Tamworth's new signing Matty Williams, who has joined on loan from Notts County, marked his debut with the Lambs equaliser three minutes before half-time, heading home a Danny Davidson cross but his effort split two goals from Daggers forward Chris Moore.
Cooper is hopeful of completing deals for new signings ahead of tomorrow's vital clash at Forest Green Rovers.
"I'm planning to let three of four players go and bring in some new faces," he said.
"We are not where we are in the league by bad luck and some players have had their chance."
Graham Turner saluted Hereford United's resilience as they edged out Crawley Town 2-1, thanks to an 87th minute header from Guy Ipoua.
The Bulls had led through Andy Williams' scintillating finish on seven minutes, but the visitors levelled through Danny Brown's 30-yard shot.
Burton Albion came back to earth after their Old Traf-ford FA Cup experience with a 1-1 draw at home to Woking.
The Cards had taken a 20th minute lead through former Shrewsbury player Karl Murray but Chris Hall fired home the Brewers' equaliser just before half-time.
