Eleven men make up a side and teamwork makes a side tick. That is not rocket science. It is common knowledge.
Danny and Nicky have instilled a belief in their players that winning is hard-fought but all important.
Their charges have certainly got the message.
Unbeaten in October and November. A third round FA Cup tie at Ipswich. Second in the National League with a game in hand.
