David Pleat is seeking a healthy points return from the remaining seven games of the campaign.
The acting boss hopes to match last season's 50-point haul which, considering the fact that the team suffered a poor start and were in the bottom three at the end of the year, would be a creditable return.
However, after the positive beginning to 2004, results have not gone our way in the last three games and the team need to reap a further 13 points to reach that total.
"We are about about five or six points off where I feel we should be, I think we should be on about 42 or 43 points at the moment," reflected David.
"So we are a little bit off where I would like us to be. I secretly hoped that we could finish the season on 50 points, I would have been delighted with that given our position at Christmas and at the start of the season.
"We are going to have to work hard to do that now. We've got seven games and, in a perfect world, I don't want to lose any of them. If would like to think we can win four and draw two - that would be fantastic."
"Who knows? It is very difficult and every club must be looking for that good run-in. We have proved before that after a bad run we can bounce back and have a good run. We need to do it again."
