Blackpool goalkeeper Matt Gilks is targeting automatic promotion and a place in the FA Cup fifth round.
The Tangerines are at home to Sheffield Wednesday in the cup on Saturday, but Gilks wants his team to have success in both competitions.
Ian Holloway's men are eight points off the Championship promotion places and having gained a place in the Premier League via the play-offs the last time, Gilks believes it is a stress they can do without.
"Hopefully, a few more wins and with the run of games that we have got we can cement a place in the play-offs," he told Sky Sports News.
"I think we are eyeing automatic. We want to go up without the stress and worrying about the play-offs, but I think we are going to be up there at the end of the season anyway."
Blackpool have a wretched record in the FA Cup over the last half a century but it is a record that their goalkeeper is keen to improve.
"I've just been told that Blackpool have only got to the fifth round twice in the last 50 years," he added.
"I think with the squad that we have now, we can definitely make that three times."
Kevin Phillips was signed by Holloway at the start of the season as he reshaped a team capable of being competitive in the Championship.
At 38, the former Sunderland and West Bromwich Albion marksman is now used sparingly, but his impact is still as devastating as ever.
Gilks added: "He's been magnificent for us. He's not played for the last few weeks, but he's come on and made a massive impact for us straight away.
"And that is what we need him for and if that's what he's going to come and do, so be it."
