Michael Dawson is hopeful we can keep our current run of form going on all fronts after progressing through to the last eight of the Carling Cup on Wednesday night.
The defender captained the side in the 4-2 victory over Liverpool at The Lane and stated the winning mentality currently running through the squad.
It was the first time 'Daws' has worn the armband this season, and although he described the occasion as an honour, he was focussed on the success of the team.
"The main thing is that we won the game, but don't get me wrong, it was a great honour to captain the side," he said.
"The only disappointing thing was the way we conceded the goals, but we dug in, showed belief and at the end of the day, we all went home happy.
"Every game you play, you want to win, there's no point otherwise, and the manager's making that point to us and keeping us believing.
"We want to keep this run going as long as we can and be hard to beat. We showed that again against Liverpool, and hopefully that will carry on into Saturday against Fulham."
Michael also praised two-goal striker Fraizer Campbell, adding: "Fraizer worked his socks off up-front - I'm just glad he was on our side and not playing against us on the night!
"But you can't single out individuals, I think everyone's got to take credit for what was a good performance."
