They really are daring to dream down at Clarence Park – after a 2-1 win over Concord Rangers in the Vanarama National League South.
A goal in the 89th minute by Louie Theophanous made it three wins from three for the Saints and lifted them above Weston-super-Mare at the foot of the table.
Ben Martin had earlier cancelled out a Steve King goal with a first-half header.
Saints had plenty of possession throughout the second half with Harry Anderson and Charlie MacDonald going close.
They got the ball in the net with just eight minutes to go but it was ruled out.
But Theophanous sent the travelling fans home happy with a screamer.
Despite the win City remain in the bottom three, and three points from safety, after Havant & Waterlooville picked up a 2-0 win over Dartford.

But the Saints are now within six points of six teams, a situation which seemed impossible a few weeks ago.
And as the wins keep coming, so does the belief they can complete an unlikely escape act.
