Those Wolverhampton Wanderers fans who only ever see home matches have probably had good cause over the last fortnight to wonder why anyone still fancies their team's play-off chances.
The last time they caught a glimpse of their darling golden boys it was merely the latest of a succession of eyeglazingly drab home draws, and they were staggering away from Molineux in their droves after a goalless draw with Watford in total disenchantment long before the final whistle.
Since then, Glenn Hoddle's men have suddenly hit top gear in three exciting away matches. When Wolves return to Molineux for the first time in 17 days to play Burnley tonight they desperately need to translate that away form to home games.
Hoddle said: "We had enough possession to win four games against Watford last time we were here. So it's not about us not having enough of the ball.
"We just needed to turn that into goalmouth opportunities and we've done that away from home. Now the test is to try to achieve that here and take all the positives from recent performances into our home fixtures."
With nine goals in those three away games, Wolves are the fifth-highest scorers in the division with 55 - but there have been 51 goals shipped at the other end and the two badly-defended goals given away in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Preston North End at Deepdale were as bad as any all season.
Failure to win at the weekend puts pressure on Wolves to win tonight and against Stoke City this Saturday.
Their three games after that are at Leeds, Leicester and at home to Ipswich Town in a televised Monday night clash against one of the division's automatic promotion fancies.
But Hoddle is still gushing forth positive vibes about play-off prospects, saying: "The points on the board might not suggest it at the minute. And ten points is a massive gap. But we've got to believe we can actually achieve it still.
"To have lost one game in 15 when I think we'd lost seven in 13 before I came here is a bit of a feat in my opinion. We're very close to maybe winning three or four games on the trot, to the massive points swing round that would put ourselves in a really strong position and I think everyone can see that.
"We won't give up the ghost whilst we're still playing as we are. We've got Leeds away after the international break and, if we could get back-toback wins this week, than we'll see where we're at.
"If it's still ten points than it's probably going to be too much but, if that deficit has gone down, then we'll still be in the hunt. We've got two home games now, we've got to be nice and positive and hopefully get a return of six points. Then I will be a happy bunny."
After bringing back new father Rob Edwards at rightback at Deepdale on Saturday, his only change, Hoddle may opt for an unchanged side tonight. But he can bring in new loan signing Rohan Ricketts.
"Things don't seem to have gone so well for him since I left Tottenham," said Hoddle, who signed him for the first time when he took him from Arsenal to Spurs three summers ago. "But I think he sees this as a good chance to play some football.
"He's got a nice turn of pace and can shoot through the gears which, perhaps in midfield, is something we haven't got. But he's joining a confident team that are playing some good football. And it's always easier to come into a squad like that."
