The side are currently five points off Sheffield Wednesday who occupy the last play-off spot, but the Cottagers have a game in hand on their rivals which will come when they play Blackburn next Tuesday at Craven Cottage.
Jokanovic, however, has challenged his players to keep their concentration levels as the highest possible number as they look to hunt down the teams who currently occupy the top six.
He said: "We are close and we are in this period of the competition where our concentration must be at the top level and we have to try not make mistakes and find a way to win the points.
"We still have eleven games and there's a gap, but we have a game more than the team in front of us and we expect that we can be competitive and we can get into a position where we can fight for the top six.
"It's nice for my staff and for myself but I have not come here for individual awards, I am fully concentrated on the Newcastle game which is in front of us."
