Brentford winger Sam Saunders insists that no-one has given up hope of qualifying for the play-offs this season.
The Bees are currently eight points adrift of the top six, but boast good form having won their last three games, including Saturday's trip to MK Dons.
Saunders is hoping they can now emulate the Dons by joining the promotion-chasing pack and push for a place in the Championship.
"Even when the results weren't going our way we never gave up because you've always got personal pride to play for," he told Sky Sports.
"Obviously, Saturday was a great result and our third win in a row, but you never know what can happen over the last seven games.
"Until it is mathematically impossible we will give it our best shot at making the play-offs, but we've said all along that a top 10 finish is our objective.
"We dropped out of that a few weeks back, so it is great to be back in there and it is now up to us to push on.
"We played MK Dons earlier this season and they were 3-0 up at half-time, so we were well aware of how good they are as a side.
"We managed to come back in the second-half to secure a point, but going to their place and winning was a step in the right direction for us.
"We admire the way they play and where they are in the table at the moment, so hopefully we can maintain this form and see where it takes us."
