Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle has urged his players to ensure the recent improvements are not a 'false dawn' as they continue to keep an optimistic eye on the play-offs.
Having been denied victory in injury time at Derby, Hoddle's men followed up with a thumping 4-1 defeat of Crewe on Saturday, reducing the gap to the top six to eight points with 10 games remaining.
Next up is a trip to fourth-placed Preston on Saturday, with Hoddle confident Wolves can continue to keep their season alive.
"I'm not going to go over the top because other teams have got games in hand, but they've got to win them," said Hoddle.
"Ironically with West Ham losing and Reading drawing suddenly we find ourselves eight points off and in this league that's not much at all.
"If teams do win their games in hand then we can't do much about it.
"All we can do is get our own results and I'm delighted with the way we've been playing and we can go to Preston in a positive frame of mind.
"In our last two away games we've scored seven and conceded four, including two penalties and a set play.
"If we can win at Preston that would make it a fantastic run of three away matches before we go back home." Rob Edwards missed out at Gresty Road because his girlfriend was due to go into labour.
Kenny Miller was substituted having suffered a calf spasm which is not expected to put him out of action.
That will come as good news to Hoddle who is delighted with the way Miller and Carl Cort are combining up front.
"Kenny's work-rate is as good as I've seen it, he looks threatening and he's scoring goals," he added.
"He and Carl Cort are now looking good and playing with a lot of confidence."
