Midfielder Gareth Risbridger says there is a feeling of relief in the Staines Town dressing room after they secured their league safety at the weekend.
First-half goals from Ali Chaaban and Will Antwi helped the Swans to a 2-1 victory over Weston-super-Mare at Wheatsheaf Park, lifting them six points clear of the dreaded drop zone with one game left to play.
The result stretched Staines' unbeaten run to six games and they will now look to extend that record when they face strugglers Havant & Waterlooville on Saturday.
Reflecting on their recent run of results, Risbridger told Get Surrey: "It's been a tough season and a tough few weeks but we've done the job.
"The last few results have been decent and now in the dressing room the feeling is one of relief.
"We always knew we were good enough to get out of it.
"We were down there because we have conceded too many goals.
"If you take the away form we have shown and put some home form with that you are in the play-offs."
And Risbridger feels they have struggled this season because of their inability to break down teams with a highly defensive outlook.
He added: "It does make a difference playing teams like that who have nothing to play for. If you play a team down there with you there is more of a fight.
"But it is the results against the top sides which have done us a good turn and it shows that we let ourselves down against the bottom sides.
"It comes down to how teams have played against us. If teams come out and play against us it shows how good we are at doing that too.
"The teams that come to us and sit, we have struggled to break them down."
