From his time at St Mirren last season Cammy Smith knows what the atmosphere in a promotion-winning dressing-room feels like.
And he senses it building among the new-look squad at Dundee United.
The Tangerines have won five and lost just once in six outings since the 23-year-old returned to Tannadice last month.
He believes if they can build on that with another success when they travel to Falkirk today, back-to-back promotions from the Championship for him can be a distinct possibility.
“The first thing you need is a good environment going into your work Monday to Friday, you need to be able to go in and enjoy it and we have that,” he said.
“Then you want to build momentum. That comes with winning games and, if you can get that good feeling about the place, it can be powerful and it’s hard for other teams to stop.”
In terms of quality, he believes overall the squad he’s part of now is stronger than the one in Paisley last term, though the advantage the Buddies had was, as the promotion run-in approached, they’d been together longer.
“The group we had at St Mirren had been together for the final six months of the year before and we were able to follow on the good work into the next season.
“But once you get that togetherness and are playing for the manager, you get a few wins and, with a good squad like we have, you can then keep it going.
“The squad here, in terms of strength in depth definitely, is stronger. The starting XIs are similar but, overall, it’s stronger here.
It’s been a quick turnaround in terms of bodies here but sometimes that can be a good thing.
“When you do get thrown in at the deep end, you just get on with it. The boys have settled in well and there’s a good dressing-room.
“I’ve played with one or two of the lads here already, the ones from Aberdeen especially, so that helps. In training you pick up little things like boys’ runs and other stuff quickly.”
The size and quality of the Tannadice player pool means competition for places is stiff.
That saw Smith left on the bench for last weekend’s win at Queen of the South but far from throwing his toys out the pram over that, he’s been working hard in training to make sure he gets the nod at the Falkirk Stadium.
“I think the manager was looking to freshen things up, so I’m not looking into it too much.
“It’s not nice to be on the bench because you want to play every game. It’s up to me to produce good performances and I do feel my last few games I have played well against Morton and St Mirren.
“On the pitch I felt I was looking dangerous and causing the opposition problems. I just need to take it on the chin and make sure I am ready to go back in.
“The main thing is we got a great win last weekend because Queen of the South is a hard place to go.
“We just need to make sure we carry that on in another big game this weekend. If we get a win against Falkirk it will be massive going into a busy run of games.”
After today, United face Inverness in the league at Tannadice on Tuesday and then a Scottish Cup quarter-final against the Highlanders on Sunday.
Some vital Championship clashes quickly follow that one but, though it will be a testing time, Smith believes United have what it takes to keep winning.
“There’s been a lot of times since January we’ve played really good football, particularly in the first half of games, and that gets you wins.
“At times in the second half we’ve had to dig out the results and that’s something you also have to be able to do if you are going to win this league.”
