Mansfield boss Paul Cox is wary of complacency ahead of Saturday's trip to Ebbsfleet United in the Blue Square Bet Premier.
The 10th-placed Stags earned a creditable point at third-placed Luton in midweek, with Cox hoping his men don't drop their guard against mid-table Fleet.
"Overall the Luton point was a good point for us, on another day we could have won but before the game we would have taken a point," he told the Chad.
"It will be totally different going to Ebbsfleet compared to a trip against a former topflight side, but teams that are going to be successful have to get results against the lower teams as well as the top teams.
"I will be looking at the Ebbsfleet game very closely this weekend to see if we have progressed in our mindset as a side. If we go into the game with the wrong mentality then we will get beat."
Cox has hinted he could shuffle his pack at Stonebridge Road.
He told This is Nottinham: "We have to look at it in terms of freshening things up. Do we thrown Hutcho (Ben Hutchinson) in again as we try to build his fitness, or do we bring him off the bench?
"Do we start with Greeny (Matt Green), who carried a bit of a knock into the Luton game and do we bring back Lindon (Meikle)?
"I usually like to take a squad of 17, but I'm likely to take 20 this time. I want to keep our options open."
Ebbsfleet, meanwhile, enjoyed a handsome 3-0 victory over Tamworth on Tuesday, lifting them to 14th in the standings.
Club boss Liam Daish feels his team are four wins away from securing their survival this season.
"We're getting results, we need some results and on the other side of things as well we need more people through the gate desperately now," he told Kent News. "It's not really for me to say that, but we've got a tough couple of months.
"We're hanging in there, we're doing well and we'd have taken this at the start of the season . We're in the back straight we just need to keep at it, get through these couple of months on and off the pitch and hopefully sort things out."
In team news, Calum Willock is expected to lead the line despite hurting his hamstring against the Lambs, but Ram Marwa is highly doubtful with a knee injury.
