Tim Howard is hopes Everton can have their usual run of decent form towards the end of the season and claim a Champions League slot.
The American keeper said: "It is going to be a matter of whether we can put two halves together."
"That is what is everyone is wondering and it is our job to keep it up and keep our levels high."
"When we don't perform well we need to get something out of it and so at the moment that is working."
Boss David Moyes said the 0-0 draw at Southampton was a missed opportunity for his side, but Howard is pleased to keep the points tally ticking over with so many big clubs targeting a top-four finish.
He said: "It is easy to say 'what if?' but I always think if we can keep picking up points here and there it is better than a loss. It just depends how you look at it."
"We are right there in the mix and it is going to go week-to-week now."
"We are three points off Spurs, Liverpool are four points behind us and Arsenal are four [points behind] with a game in hand, so if everyone does their job, it is going to be basically who wins the head-to-head battles."
