Rickie Lambert is hoping Southampton can record a third straight win at St Mary's on Wednesday and halt in-form Norwich in their tracks.
The Canaries are unbeaten in seven matches but the Saints have also climbed away from the relegation zone after back-to-back wins against QPR and Newcastle.
"I've always had belief we would get results," Lambert said. "Some of our performances earlier in the season were good but mistakes have cost us.
"It felt so good to finally get some wins, and hopefully we can push on now. It'd be massive if we could get three wins in a row. There are a lot of teams close together, so back-to-back wins take you up a long way."
The meeting with the Canaries will see a reunion between Lambert and Norwich counterpart Grant Holt, who were strike partners at Rochdale in the fourth tier of English football just over six years ago.
"We were more worried about staying in the Football League than thinking about playing in the top flight one day," Lambert told the club's website.
"But it's nice to see how Grant's career has gone, and I'll certainly be speaking to him tomorrow. We text each other now and again, and he's given me quite a bit of advice over the past two years.
"Perhaps we appreciate (playing in the top flight) more than most because of the paths that we have taken - I know for a fact that I appreciate where I am now."
