Hat-trick hero Alan Power is hoping Lincoln City have proved the doubters wrong after they smashed five past Stalybridge Celtic.
Lincoln have notched two 3-0 wins this season, with victories against Hyde FC in the Skrill Premier and Worcester City in an FA Cup replay. But they have also failed the find the net at all on nine occasions as well.
However, Power believes the win in the FA Trophy against Stalybridge has underlined the goal-scoring credentials in the side.
"I don't think that this season we have been outplayed, but the goals haven't been there," said Power.
"However, we've netted five against Stalybridge and that was without our leading goalscorer Ben Tomlinson. There are goals in us. I know I needed to score more goals, so we will kick on from there.
"It's nice to get a win. For the club it was a good thing to happen. It was important to show that we are capable of scoring that many goals.
"Some of the football we played in the first half was tremendous, and I was glad there were some fans who came along to see that.
"I think the quality of the squad is up there in the league. I think the performances have been there this season, but the goals haven't. So, hopefully, a win like this will get our season up and running."
Power scored in the Imps' 3-2 defeat at Luton's Kenilworth Road earlier in the campaign, but since then has struggled to find the net.
The midfielder now hopes after netting the first hat-trick of his professional career that he will be able to kick on and get his name on the score sheet again.
"I think I had a good few goals last season at this stage," said Power. "Hopefully this hat-trick will kick my season off in terms of goals.
"The manager has been telling me to get in the box more.
"I had one at Luton away and I thought that would kick me off.
"However, during the week leading up to the Stalybridge game I have been working on getting in the box and getting my shots away.
"I know one was a penalty and another a free-kick, but I'll take them."
City boss Gary Simpson was pleased to see his side deliver the goods against Stalybridge after what had been a lean spell for the side.
And he revealed that he has put the impetus on other players to get in the mix as well.
"We haven't scored enough goals in terms in forward players," said Simpson.
"Everyone has to chip in. Nat Brown is coming forward to desperately attack something in the box, be it from a corner.
"We have spoken to him about it not being a token effort. The last two or three games he has gone at it as if he's meant it.
"We obviously lost Andrew Boyce, who used to get on the end of those kind of balls in the box. So we need to add that again with someone else."
