Nottingham Forest manager Martin O'Neill is looking forward to coming up against another play-off hopeful in the shape of Hull City this weekend.
The Reds welcome The Tigers to The City Ground on Saturday and O'Neill believes having more teams in the running for a top six finish could work in their favour.
He said: "It will be a big test. Their form in recent months has been excellent and they have given themselves a chance. I think that the more sides there are that feel there are places up for grabs, the better it will be.
"We naturally have to try and look after ourselves and I think that if we get the requisite number of points, then of course it is still possible.
"The games are running down and the great result against Derby was negated by the defeat against Stoke City. We have to get back up again and the players have reacted very positively this week but the proof will be in the pudding.
"This Saturday we have to be very strong, Hull will feel they are capable of winning games and we have to be ready mentally, I think we are right physically."
