We're certainly looking up rather than down after winning five and drawing one of eight league games since we dropped into the relegation zone after the home defeat against Charlton.
We now sit tenth in the table as Newcastle arrive at the Lane on Sunday.
"Our initial goal when we started this adventure was to improve results enough to breathe clearly," said acting boss David.
"Although we had an upsurge and downsurge we came to Christmas, lost to Charlton and plunged into the bottom three.
"That was only December 28th. So we re-written the script slightly since then and we want to finish well - that's why we were all so disappointed to lose at Middlesbrough."
The likes of Charlton and Liverpool haven't really got away but then you have to look at the fixtures left.
I would like Bobby Rbson to nick fourth but then again, I don't want him to nick us on Sunday. There is no more decent manager, no more honest manager and a manager who has done his apprenticeship and deserves everything he gets out of the game. That's why I would like him to so it because he's a good man, a humble man and always helping other people. They've won fove and drawn four of their last nine games but that's the demands of a team like Newcastle.They've bought very good British players, ythje likes of Der, Jenas, Woodate, Bellamy, Bramble, the nucleus of the side is young and British and that is a good philipsohy.
David Pleat believes we've 're-written the script' for the rest of the season with our Premiership form on 2004.
