Bolton manager Dougie Freedman feels his side is on the right track to push for promotion back to the Premier League.
Former Crystal Palace boss Freedman, who took over at the Reebok Stadium in October, has the Trotters sitting 13th on the Championship table but he expects them to slowly push up the table ahead of a possible automatic recoil to England's top flight.
"Fans' expectations are no higher than mine," Freedman told the Bolton News. "My expectations are to be climbing out of this division because I think we have the talent in the squad.
"We've got a long way to go but I just feel in the last four or five games our performances have been good. We are on the right path.
"It has been stop-start, but since I have been here we have only been beaten once. The momentum is there. It's just about turning these draws into wins. That's the key to it.
"And we are just small fractions away from doing that. The table doesn't interest me in December. It kind of does in the middle of February because I know we can then put the foot down and have a real good push if we are in contention."
