Norwich manager Chris Hughton has insisted his players will not get carried away with their sparkling recent form.
Saturday's 2-1 win over Wigan extended their unbeaten run to 10 matches and lifted the Canaries to seventh in the Premier League.
But Hughton believes he will not have problems keeping his squad grounded as they prepare to maintain their form over the hectic festive schedule.
"For me, it is very easy, I know where we are as a football club and what other teams have, with their budgets," said Hughton, who replaced Paul Lambert as manager in the summer.
"There are those clubs who are able to spend big money on what they can, while we are showing great quality in a workmanlike side.
"They are a very down to earth, level-headed group, but we have to work very hard for everything we get.
"If we fall away from that, then we have every chance of getting beaten, so we will certainly not be getting carried away.
"We know how we have to compete in every game, and if that is the case then we have a chance of doing okay, but we never come away from the reality of what we are."
