Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard feels a top four finish is within their grasp.
Howard insists his sideâ€™s fate remains firmly in their own hands and his team mates thrive in these key encounters.
He told evertonfc.com: â€œWeâ€™re keeping pace. I think we need a bit of luck but as long as we keep putting in the performances, and cross our fingers that some of the teams in front of us will drop points.
â€œIf we can start taking points off around those around us, maybe we can make our own luck and make them drop points.
â€œBig players perform well under pressure, they thrive off it, thatâ€™s why weâ€™re at this level and thatâ€™s why weâ€™re not languishing in the middle or at the bottom and itâ€™s all to play for."
