The 33-year-old believes the South Coasters do have enough quality to compete with the best, but insists his team-mates must ignore the hype and focus on one game at a time.
"I think we've got enough here to get into Europe," the centre-half admitted.
"There are enough experienced players around the pitch and on the bench as well, so it's looking good.
"But the main thing is you've got to really remain focused and not get carried away with the situation. It's all about putting the same amount of effort into every game and then consistency will come.
"There is a strong foundation this season but we have to take care of that, look after it, and make sure we don't get carried away because it can easily go.
"We haven't won done anything or won anything yet. Nothing has actually been achieved and so we've got to really look after ourselves and approach every game the same way."
