Peter Ramage is looking for Newcastle to continue their climb up the table in the coming weeks.
The Magpies hauled themselves out of the relegation zone with a win over Reading on Wednesday and such is the condensed nature of the Premiership, they are just nine points short of a UEFA Champions League place.
Ramage feels Newcastle have turned a corner and is looking for the club to extend their seven-game unbeaten run and climb the table.
"It is so tight in this league at the moment," Ramage told Sky Sports News. "From above us, 13th or 14th, to third, there is only about a five-point gap.
"So if we can put together another couple of back-to-back victories and keep this run going, then we know all the talk of us being in the bottom half will go away.
"I don't think we have ever lost our confidence, we were just wondering where the victory was going to come from.
"Our performances have been good of late and we are now turning draws into wins and it is a good sign."
