Jamie O'Hara is reluctant to start setting targets for Wolves this season, but admits mid-table security will do for now.
Mick McCarthy's men climbed four places into 13th on Sunday with a 3-1 victory over rock-bottom Wigan.
That success was most welcome, as the men from Molineux had gone eight games since they last picked up three points.
O'Hara hopes the tide has now turned for Wolves, but admits it is still far too early in the season to be setting long-term goals.
He said: "Football changes every week. It's crazy. One minute you are down there, the next minute you are up there.
"It's crazy, especially in the Premier League.
"We've got Everton away, and that is another game where we think we can get points, and then we've got some big home games.
"If everyone sticks behind us and we keep working as a team, there is no reason why we can't push on.
"People remind me I said pre-season 10th or 11th spot was a possibility.
"I'm not saying it now. It's a long season. I always say after Christmas, that is when the business end comes in, the big games.
"If we can keep ourselves mid-table, then after Christmas we can talk about what we can achieve or not."
O'Hara has also offered his reaction to the news that Wigan captain Antolin Alcaraz has been charged by the Football Association for spitting at Richard Stearman.
He said: "You can't spit. There is no need for that in the game. We are all footballers.
"We shake hands after the game but you can't be spitting at people. That is not right. You can't be doing that."
