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've 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."
David Pleat believes we've 're-written the script' for the rest of the season with our Premiership form in 2004.
