Spalding United need to hit back again on Saturday after last week’s disappointment.
The Tulips have done it previously by winning the next game following a defeat.
Having lost 1-0 to second-placed Witton Albion, they have a chance to protect the advantage over their play-off rivals with a home win over Belper Town.
Boss Chris Rawlinson said: “I watched Belper away to Newcastle Town a couple of weeks ago.
“They have got some very experienced players who have been at this level for a long time. But it has to be all about ourselves rather than looking at the opposition.
“We started poorly last Saturday but Witton are a good side. We were on top for parts of the second half and we deserved credit. Maybe a draw would have been a fair result.
You can’t think it’s all doom and gloom after losing a game. We look at why we lost and what we can do to affect the next result.Chris Rawlinson
“You can’t think it’s all doom and gloom after losing a game. We look at why we lost and what we can do to affect the next result.
“We have to make sure we hit back with a win. If we pick up a couple of wins we will be back on our points target.
“We are on course for the play-offs, although we know anyone can win or lose four games in a row.”
Left-back Adam Jackson and attacking midfielder Conor Higginson are back in the squad.
Defender Neal Spafford and central midfielder Nathan Whitehead are banned.
