Leeds United's on-loan winger Sanchez Watt says manager Simon Grayson still want his troops to target second place.
The Whites had been in the thick of it recently, but dropped points to Ipswich and Sheffield United has seen the West Yorkshire outfit slip six points behind second-placed Norwich.
Although automatic promotion now looks an outside bet, Watt, who is on a season-long loan from Arsenal, insists Leeds' manager has not given up the chase.
Leeds host sixth-placed Nottingham Forest on Saturday and Watt is hoping that with a full house at Elland Road supporting the team they can return to winning ways.
"The gaffer (Simon Grayson) doesn't want anything less than us pushing for second place," said Watt.
"Last season we were focusing on winning every game and we're the same now. We'll be going for it.
"With the crowd behind us I'm sure we can do it.
"The league is so tight, a good run will put pressure on the other teams and we'll see what happens.
"As a young player it's good and I'm grateful I've got this opportunity."
