Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Sale boss Steve Diamond believes that some good old-fashioned home comforts can help drive the Sharks to a second successive top-six Premiership finish this season.
With seven games left, Sale have risen to fifth place in the table in the wake of Saturday's superb 14-10 win over Saracens at theAJ Bell Stadium.
In one of the most tightly congested tables in years, just four points separate seventh-placed Harlequins from second-placed Bath.
However, Sale now face a daunting fortnight on the road with successive trips to Leicester and Bath.
But with three more matches to come at an AJ Bell Stadium - which is rapidly becoming a fortress with Sale having downed champions Northampton there last month - Diamond believes his men are in pole position to repeat last season's top six finish.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, he said: "There's a lot of congestion in the table but all we've got to do is win our home games and be highly competitive on the road as not many teams win away from home," declared the Sharks director of rugby.
"I've been involved in this competition for 20 years and I understand it well and I know that if you want to do well, you have to win your home games.
"Internally we'll reset our goals come the spring. We've got Leicester and Bath away over the next fortnight who are two of the giants of this league, like Saracens.
"But regardless of how we do there, if we finish in the top six that will be a fantastic achievement."
Diamond also believes what was a first league win over Saracens in more than four years, demonstrated yet again that he has assembled the perfect blend of hard-nosed experience and youthful exuberance.
And though there is also a sprinkling of stardust - not least in flamboyant fly-half Danny Cipriani - who marked his new two-year contract at the club by producing another fine display on Saturday, Diamond says there is a distinct lack of ego at Sale.
"We have a very good team ethic. We said when we met before the game on Saturday that it wasn't about tactics - it was about attitude," said Diamond.
"We know we have a high skill set but the lads are also highly motivated, especially when we play the top teams such as Saracens.
"When we get our first team out we are a good side, especially at home, and we have shown that we are capable of giving anyone a run for their money in this league.
"We don't spend the money of the super clubs but we have a good spirit and we have several really talented youngsters who have already made a big impact this season.
"And with Danny, Dan Braid, Nathan Hines, and Chris Cusiter we have a great group of senior lads and for us it's all about player power.
"We as coaches just facilitate that in a small way - that's why we have a good working environment.
"The ingredients in the cauldron are massive and Danny's one of the main ingredients.
"And if we can sign a couple of new players to complement what we have already then we'll be a good side going forward."
