Our schedule started in fine style with the thrilling win over Manchester City at Maine Road and continues against Charlton at the Lane today. After that we travel to Newcastle before making the first of two trips south to face Southampton.
Chris feels that emerging with honours from this tough run of games can really accelerate progress and is happy with our promising start.
"It keeps us in touch with the top few places - in touch with the Champions League places which is where, ideally, we want to be.
"It keeps us ticking over. It's a good run now - five unbeaten. A lot happens over the Christmas period and it's important. If you lose a few games you can end up at the wrong end of the table and if you win you can really kick on towards the top.
"If we can have a decent Christmas we can be looking at the European places without a doubt."
Chris Perry suggests that the hectic Christmas period can either make or break a season.
