The Dubbo Demons know back-to-back wins to start the season really means nothing in the overall scheme of things but that doesn't mean it hasn't had an impact on the squad.
The Demons are enjoying their best start to an AFL Central West season in some time and welcome the Orange Tigers to South Dubbo Oval in Saturday's third round.
Mick Daly, a long-serving player at the club, has seen plenty of Demons teams fall short and battle for consistency over the years but he feels a real buzz around the club at the moment.
"We're not taking anyone lightly but mentality-wise it's good knowing we've gone there and beaten them," Daly said, looking back at the round one win in Orange.
"You feel like you should get the job done and that's a different feeling.
"We've got the confidence we can do it and confidence does a lot."
Daly also pointed to the willingness to work together and as a team as another real benefit for the side this year.
Daly is playing his part as assistant to coach Steve Smith and admitted he has been sceptical of some of his positional choices at times.
But it's all paid off and proved for the best and the players have put the team first and done whatever Smith has asked.
"If we wanted to put [full forward] Bevan [Charlton-White] in the backline he'd do it," Daly said.
"There's no egos in this side. The egos are out the door and everyone has bought into it.
"Everyone is accepting of their roles no matter what it is and I think that's where the energy is coming from."
While there's confidence and strong results, Daly added the Demons still have plenty to work on.
"I said to the boys we've got a couple of wins and that's good but we're no world-beaters," he said.
"We've still got a heap to work on and we know that and Orange is capable of coming up here and flipping the card on us."
While the Demons will be without their Irish newcomers due to work commitments on Saturday the side does welcome back Tom Budd and Connor McDonald.
Play starts 2.30pm on Saturday.
