Ross Harrison is confident that his side are moving in the right direction as they look to build on four consecutive wins.
The Sharks were outscored four tries to three by Newcastle on Friday, but the trusty boot of Will Addison kicked Sale to the win with three penalties from three.
“When you look back at the tries it was only little things that let us down. One from our attacking play, another was a small lapse in concentration,” said the 23-year-old.
“If we iron out the little errors then I think it’ll push us on to that next level that everyone wants to be at. Everyone is trying really hard to get there and we’re very close.”
Sale’s victory on Friday was a fourth from four games, although it was their first Premiership win since October.
A Champions Cup win over Scarlets, before Anglo-Welsh Cup victories over Cardiff Blues and Harlequins has seen a turn in fortunes at the club.
“Three of those wins were in different competitions but it’s great to build that momentum and snowball it in to the Premiership,” Harrison said.
“It was a bit squeaky in part but that seems to be the norm for us at the moment. We need to get back to being able to see games out but every player put in a big shift on Friday so we’re happy.
Sale’s set piece was a stand out feature of Friday’s win, and something they will be looking to build on against league leaders Wasps on Sunday.
“Halani [Aulika] and Rob [Webber] worked really well on that tighthead side, and they opened it up for me,” he explained.
“Bryn Evans is clinical at the lineout too. It’s almost forensic the amount of detail he puts in during the week.
“That win has lifted spirits around the club and boosted confidence. We need to grow on that this week in order to challenge a very strong, tough Wasps side.”
