GRAHAM Wagg hailed Glamorgan's crucial Yorkshire Bank 40 success against Middlesex as the "win of the season" but has stressed the need to keep the pedal to the metal.
Marcus North's men beat the Panthers by 11 runs thanks to a magnificent bowling display while defending 153-9 in a clash reduced to 25 overs.
It was a victory that puts them joint top of Group C with Somerset, who have played 10 games, and Gloucestershire, who have played nine like Glammy.
With just three fixtures left the semi-finals would be tantalisingly close if they notch another success against Gloucestershire in Bristol on Sunday.
However, Glamorgan know all too well about the threat of the Gladiators, who applied the killer blow to the Welsh county's Friends Life t20 campaign.
Glammy made a perfect start in the shortest format with four successive wins but fell apart by managing just one more from their final six fixtures.
And their quarter-finals hopes ended when the already eliminated Gloucestershire won in Cardiff in the last group game.
That painful failure ensures Glamorgan won't be dreaming of a Lord's final just yet despite a fine performance against Middlesex.
"That was perhaps the win of the season for us," said man of the match Wagg, who struck a vital unbeaten 20 and then bowled smartly with figures of one for 29.
"We didn't get off to a great start when the wicket seamed around a lot, it's a new surface and we didn't know what it was going to do.
"To get that score on the board was fantastic and the way we bowled was phenomenal.
"It was a great team effort with the ball. Simon Jones bowled really fast, Dean Cosker bowled very well in the middle and Michael Hogan performed outstandingly, as he has in every competition this year."
Glamorgan have not played a knockout game since 2008 but the left-arm seamer insists nobody is getting carried away at the Swalec Stadium.
"We saw in T20 after getting off to a flyer how quickly things can turn around so we'll be keeping out feet on the floor and will look to keep performing how we are now," he said.
