Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Scarborough took them to fourth in the Evo-stik NPL first division north, and co-boss Peter Band believes they are well-placed to cement that position.
In midweek many of the top clubs played each other and some inevitably dropped points while Mossley won. On Saturday, Band wants to take advantage of the leading sides' involvement in the FA Cup. A win over Kendal would put the Lilywhites second in the table.
Asked the secret of Mossley's sudden resurgence, Band replied: "Getting a fair crack of the whip - and by that I mean Lloyd Morrison and myself being able to choose from a squad we've built. Last year we lost around 15 players to Ashton United.
"Over the summer the lads have been doing some boxing and they're fitter and stronger. We've got leaders too, people who'll roll their sleeves up and battle.
"Last season, if we'd been 3-0 down to Farsley we would probably have rolled over. This time there's a belief about the side. Players like Josh Granite and Mitchell Bryant have added some steel."
Band is also adamant his team should have done better in its early defeats. He says they should have taken something from Salford and heavily defeated Bamber Bridge. He describes the opening-day 5-5 draw with Harrogate Railway as a bonkers game.
"We should have five or six more points than we have, and if that was the case we'd be above Salford," the Seel Park co-manager added.
On Saturday, Mossley are home to Kendal whom they beat 3-2 at Parkside Road a fortnight ago. In the meantime, however, the Cumbrians have "parted company" with manager David Foster and started to pick up points under caretaker boss Michael Stringfellow. A 2-2 draw at Burscough was followed by a 4-1 victory over Radcliffe.
Band summed up: "It's going well but to use that old saying we're taking it one game at a time. We've got to keep our feet on the ground and focus on the job in hand."
