Jordan Smith says Nottingham Forest need to start replicating their home form on their travels to keep pressure on the sides above them.
The goalkeeper believes that if they can pick up some more results on the road then they could be in reach of the top six, starting at Bristol City tomorrow.
He said: "It was great to get a result in front of the home fans last weekend. Our home form speaks for itself but now it is a case of if we can go and do it on the road as well.
"The results have been very up and down; proven by the fact we haven't drawn a game yet. But we have got quite a few points on the board and we are hovering around the top 10 which is what we could have asked for at the start of the season.
"We are quite pleased but we know that with another few good results, especially on the road, we could be knocking on the door of the top six."
The Reds have shown glimpses of their quality this season and Smith knows that if they produce it on a consistent basis then they can be in the running come May.
"The QPR game probably did more harm than good as we set our own standard," he said. "We showed our quality and everything went right on the day to produce a great performance and get a great result off the back of it.
"Everyone thought we had found our groove and that was how it would be from now on. But the demands of this division and the teams changing the way they want to play against us meant we found it more difficult.
"The goals have been flowing but we have shipped more than we have liked; it would be exciting to be in the mix with something to play for and a few more results could put us in there."
