JOHN Coleman admitted he and his side have learnt vital lessons from their early days in League Two.
The Reds picked up four points from their opening seven league clashes but have since gone on a six game unbeaten run which has propelled them into tenth place in the league.
"Over the last month, I think we have adapted to what is needed in this league," said Coleman.
"We still feel we can improve as we are not a team who like to make do and we are not prepared to put up with what we deem mediocrity.
"I was frustrated against Swindon last Saturday as we didn't reach the standards we have set ourselves and that has cost us two points.
"Over the season hopefully these will even themselves out. Saying that, we have nicked a couple of late goals and maybe haven't deserved to win those games. But I believe we should win all our home matches."
He knows, though, his side are a match for anyone in the league now they have had an unlucky 13 games to get to grips with it.
Coleman continued: "I think, as the season has gone on, we have been able to adapt to the physical presence of what this league is very much about.
"Consequently we haven't given teams as many chances as we have given them in previous games.
"At the start of the season, we might have lacked the confidence to go and get a goal ourselves against teams like Swindon and maybe we would have buckled.
"But I think we are made of stronger stuff now and we are not buckling under pressure."
With the move up to tenth spot, Coleman is now looking higher.
"A good season for us would be getting into the play-offs but we are not concerned with setting ourselves targets.
"We want to win every game we play and we will go to the top sides believing we can beat them just as we believe we can beat anybody at home.
"I have seen a lot of the teams now - probably 70 to 80 per cent of the teams in League Two - and we have nothing to fear."
