Curtis Davies is hoping Birmingham City can start making a move towards the Championship play-off places by beating Leeds United on Wednesday evening.
Birmingham's Europa League commitments mean the majority of teams in the division have played three games more than Chris Hughton's side.
However, the Blues are still only four points adrift of the top six and Davies is keen to make progress up the table in the coming weeks.
"Getting into the top six is a possibility - that's if we ever catch up on the games," Davies told the Birmingham Mail.
"We have got Sunday, midweek, Sunday, midweek or Saturday, midweek all the way to the New Year.
"It will be interesting. You have to go and win them. But we have no better opportunity than Leeds at home on Wednesday to get the ball rolling and strike one off the list."
