Brentford head coach Dean Smith didn't rubbish talk of a promotion push after the Bees made it three wins in a week with a 3-1 victory over Leeds.
The west Londoners are now just four points off the play-offs after a strong October and start of November.
And all eyes are on the gap to the top six sides but Smith is keeping his feet on the ground insisting it was one game at a time.
He said: “I have no idea, our aim is to try and get promoted but there's a long way to go and we'll just take it game by game.
“We're on a nine game unbeaten run at the moment and it's been hard work to do that. You never say never, but it's going to be hard work to do that.”
The fact the Bees are even looking at a promotion push is startling, given their poor start, results wise, to the season.
Brentford were, arguably, playing better in August and September but the results were not there. Now, though, the Bees are picking up the wins.
Smith added: “I've always had a great belief in what we do. I know sometimes, some people were looking at me as if I'd gone mad when I was saying how good our performances were and that we had to continue and believe in what we're doing.
“I felt that the results would come and we're a hard working team, we've got some quality in there and let's see where that takes us.
Anyone who has watched Brentford will know they haven't always had the rub of the green, with goalkeepers having impressive performances and strikers finding the net from 30 yards.
Now, those breaks appear to be falling at a more even spread and Smith feels that a improved ruthlessness in front of goal has lifted the club as well.
He explained: “I think some of the opposition's 30 yard shots haven't been going in the top corner and we've been taking a few more of our chances.
“But the work rate and the effort has continued to be the same.”
Brentford can now go into the international break with a smile on their face and prepare for the hard slog that is the run of fixtures between now and March.
Smith said: “It's always nice to get that break. The Championship is relentless, it's a tough league and you have to get a lot of recovery.
“As I said earlier it's one day less recovery after a Wednesday game and that's why I changed a couple of the players to get more legs into the team.
“I felt that certainly aided us but it is relentless and you have to go and get your recovery and we've obviously got a number of internationals who we wish well.”
