Victory over West Bromwich Albion has Toon in the top five.
"Winning four in a row will shoot you up the table but we're not getting carried away," Ameobi told Sky Sports.
"We'll enjoy this one tonight, being fifth in the table is fantastic. We've got a quick game coming up on Wednesday (against Swansea) that we've got to get ready for and we're looking forward to that."
