GARY Roberts admitted earlier in the season he could be part of the reason why Paul Mullin wasn't further up the Conference goalscoring charts.
Reds hitman Mullin has been the Stanley top scorer with more than 20 league goals in the last two seasons.
The 31-year-old was used to getting on end of Rory Prendergast's crosses and they proved a frightening combination at times.
However, Prendergast has moved on and Roberts has more than stepped into his left wing boots and, while the former Welshpool winger has been getting the goals himself and getting assists for others early on, Mullin wasn't so much a beneficiary to help him to the ten goal margin before Christmas.
But, in the last few games, the situation has changed with "Roberts cross, Mullin header" now becoming a lethal link up which has proved crucial in Stanley's last two tricky away ties.
Mullin has scored two in this way in the last two matches to take his goalscoring tally to eight goals for the season and help Stanley sit six points clear at the top of the table with one game in hand on second placed Exeter.
And assistant manager Jimmy Bell is pleased that long-serving Mullin is finding his scoring touch - and thinks he can go on and repeat what he has done for the last two seasons and get in the 20s.
"Two goals in two games is a great boost for Paul. He knows he should be further up the goalscoring charts but people are scoring around him.
"But if he gets himself on a little bit of a run now he will climb those charts. You know what you are getting from Paul and he has got around 20 goals for the last few seasons. He has got his standards to try and get up there again."
While the goal was good for Mullin, the win also ended The Lamb jinx - before Tuesday night, Stanley had never picked up a point in Tamworth.
They did get off to a dream start with Mullin's third minute opener but Jake Edwards converted a penalty for second-from-bottom Tamworth before half-time.
Ian Craney then scored a 20 yard winner before there was a grandstand finish with both sides having chances.
"It is a very intimidating place to come and it is a fantastic result and a great three points," enthused Bell.
"They make it very hard, the conditions were difficult with a swerling wind and, in the second half, they put us under a bit of pressure. But we deserved to win in end. We have never won here and they have been a bit of a bogey team but we showed character and grit to get the three points."
Stanley were hoping to catch the Lambs with their minds still on their FA Cup exploits following their draw with Championship side Stoke at the weekend. But the home side did start with two early shots which, while not really troubling Stanley, showed they were up for this game.
However, John Coleman could rest early as his side continue their mission to score in every league game.
Tamworth lost the ball, Roberts broke down the left in the Reds' first attack and played in a pacey ball which Mullin angled well into the corner beyond the diving beanpole keeper Scott Bevan - and there was just two minutes 50 seconds on the clock.
But tall winger Nick Wright was a threat for Tamworth and, minutes later, he made space and got a shot in from the edge of the six yard box which Rob Elliot had to push out.
And Wright then got the better of Leam Richardson and tricked his way to the by-line to play a superb ball across the face of goal - but luckily for Stanley no one was there.
The Reds were furious when Craney tumbled under a pile of bodies in the area, appealing for a spot kick, but the ref told the management he needed to see more contact and ignored the appeals.
And then Stanley were ruing a perfect chance to open up a two goal cushion when indecision between the Tamworth defence and Bevan left Bevan in no mans land and let Rommy Boco in. He needed to lift the ball high from the edge of the area but agonisingly shot straight at the stranded Tamworth keeper to make it easy for him.
Bevan then pushed out a stinging Craney 30 yarder while Mullin headed a chance wide
For all Stanley's chances, Tamworth did still represent a danger with one Matt Redmile ball forward tricking Michael Welch, who slipped, allowing Jake Edwards in but safe-hands Elliot denied him.
But then Edwards got the better of Welch when the defender tried to stop Edwards turning, the striker appealed and the referee blew his whistle for a penalty.
It looked a soft one and a spot kick is apparently a rare occurence for the Conference strugglers but Edwards tucked it under Elliot's diving body to level the score.
It seemed the Tamworth hoodoo had struck again and the half-time team talk must have been interesting. A host of Stanley chances followed with the hard-working Barry teeing up a shot and volleying wide while a Roberts speedy ball found the head of Boco at the near post but it skimmed wide.
But then Craney fired home his eighth goal of the season after Tamworth failed to clear their lines.
Boco, in the area, used his vision to flick a loose ball to the unmarked midfielder who was on the edge of the area and he finished superbly, rifling the ball low and hard into the bottom corner of the net.
It was then an entertaining, if nervy, last 30 minutes as it could have gone either way.
Boco shot at the keeper while Elliot had to be alert when Edwards got the better of the defence but the keeper came out to deny him a shot.
Then captain Peter Cavanagh, in his new winger's role, beat his man in the area and set up Boco four yards out but, with his back to goal, he tried to flick the ball into the net but it didn't come off.
Wright had a fierce cross-cum-shot pushed out by Elliot and he had to push out a Dave Bampton cross.
Then Stanley should have made it three on 84 minutes when Barry's through ball split the defence and Mullin was there. It looked a certain goal but Bevan got a touch to it to push his effort onto the post.
There was four minutes of injury time with some tense moments around the goal although Elliot wasn't tested and the Reds raised their hands at the end to celebrate their 16th league win out of 24 games this season.
But Bell still thinks there is room for improvement.
"We have had a few games where we have gone in front and we take our foot off the accelerator and try and idle our way through and it happened again at Tamworth," said the assistant.
"You can't give teams chances, especially the way the crowd get behind them here, but the penalty was a bit dubious to say the least. Yet Ian has come up with a great goal to seal a win and I thought we could have gone on and scored a few more.
"Winning is a habit, as is losing. We had a bank of home games which we won and won well and it breeded confidence right through the team with clean sheets and scoring goals.
"Everything is going well at the moment."
