Alan Lewer knows it will be difficult to keep his Southport side sailing at the top of the Vanarama National League.
In a surprising start, Port have thrashed Boston United and won 2-1 at Bradford Park Avenue.
That has given hope to the club returning to the top tier of the Non-League game after relegation last season.
But Lewer is too long in the tooth to know this is anything other than a great start.
The new boss, who runs the team with Mark Wright, is keen to stress there is plenty of work ahead.
“It’s been a very pleasing first week, but that’s all it is,” said the Southport manager, who also was at the helm at Weymouth and Histon.
“It’s very pleasing. In both games we created lots of chances.
“But there’s a lot of work in front of us, we all know that. It’s not an easy league as everyone can see but the first two games have been nothing except positive.
“It’s been a difficult few years and it’s good to get the team off to a winning start.
“But we are a young side who needs to learn every week. There will be ups and downs but I can’t ask for anymore really, to get a maximum return I’m very happy with that. We just have to take it a game at a time going forward.”
