Nottingham Forest defender Michael Hefele knows that they must take it one game at a time if they are to be successful this season.
The Reds head to Swansea City on Saturday and Hefele is keen to carry on improving and aim for a successful end to the season.
He said: "Everybody has the target and the same mindset in the dressing room. The first few games haven't been brilliant with very good results, we have to be totally honest. We had some good games and some not so good games, and we have to fix this now and we are working hard and training hard on this to get the balance and consistency.
"You need that in the Championship as you can't play well one day and not well the next. We have to improve these little details and we still believe that we can achieve our targets.
"But it can't be achieved right now; there are still eight or nine months and 40 games to go. We will take it from game to game, to get three points from each game, work as hard as we can and take it to the next one. Then, at the end of the day, we will see what the result is."
The German defender is expecting a tough encounter in South Wales but said that The Reds must focus on playing their own game.
He said: "They came down from the Premier League and are a good team with good players. They have changed the way they play and it will be a hard and tough game. But we are prepared and we are not afraid of anybody.
"For me, it doesn't matter who our opponent is on Saturday as we are Nottingham Forest."
