Mitch Megginson expects Cove to put Wednesday’s poor performance behind them with a win tomorrow.
The Highland League champions were far from their best as they squeaked past struggling Nairn 2-1.
The result saw Cove move up into second in the table, keeping the pressure on unbeaten Buckie Thistle.
But now they turn their attentions to their trip to Forres Mechanics tomorrow.
Cove have taken 13 of the last 15 points available to them.
Megginson admits the side can play much better if they are to keep their push up the table going.
But as far as he is concerned, winning is the top priority for the team.
“We just want three points, that’s the main thing in this league and with this squad, we’re good enough to win every game,” he said.
“We have to work hard and if we do, that talent should come through.”
He added: “You’ve just got to move on in football. Regardless of whether you win, lose or draw, you can’t change the result and you have to take it game by game.
“The Forres match will be no different as well.”
Forres threw away a three-goal first-half lead to lose 5-3 at home to Wick on Wednesday.
Cove have been typically ruthless in attack, bagging 19 goals in their last five matches.
Jonny Smith and Megginson have formed a solid partnership this season.
The former Aberdeen player scored Cove’s second against Nairn with a powerful snap-shot that found the top corner.
But Megginson believes the duo can still improve yet.
He said: “Jonny’s game is different to mine, he’s stronger and can hold people off and I can run off him, but we can both score goals and set up goals.
“As long as we keep getting the service from the boys, which we do, we can have no qualms and things are only going to get better.”
