Midfielder Neal Bishop insists Notts County can beat the best sides in League One, despite suffering defeats to the division's top four.
The 2-1 loss to Huddersfield on Saturday followed reversals against Charlton, Sheffield Wednesday and MK Dons but Bishop does not believe they have anything to fear from the league's elite.
"We don't choose to look at it that way," he told the Nottingham Post. "We have lost to all of them, but I think our performances show we're not far off.
"They have all been close games so there is not a lot of difference.
"We're evolving as a team and overall I think we're moving in the right direction."
