Striker Terry Gornell is encouraged how Shrewsbury Town have adjusted to life in League One following promotion - insisting: "We've acquitted ourselves well and we need to continue doing that."
Gornell revealed confidence inside the Town dressing room was high as the players prepare for back-to-back away matches with Saturday's trip to Stevenage followed by a clash with Notts County at Meadow Lane the following weekend.
He said: "We've picked up four points from the last two home games so we should go into the two away games full of confidence and I'm looking forward to them.
"When the fixtures came out, people were thinking it was probably a baptism of fire for us, but the Sheffield United performance in the first game was a good one and we were unlucky not to get a point there.
"I thought we controlled the game against Preston, one of the favourites, and Tranmere last Saturday are the early pacesetters and we did well again.
"It felt more like a defeat to be honest at the end but it always does when you concede so late on - but it was another point on the board and we'll move on now."
Gornell added he was not surprised by Town's promising start given the strength of the squad put together by manager Graham Turner.
He said: "When you look at the squad around you, there's no reason why we can't challenge in this league."
