He told the club's official website: "I think we deserve to be there. In fact, I think we deserve to have even more points, to be honest.
"We've done really well but the main thing is to keep that going and show people it's not just the start of the season.
"We are going into a lot of games now with the Christmas period coming up and we've got to keep it going and keep picking up points."
Ridgewell added: "We know what we're all about and everyone connected with the club is very level-headed.
"The only people getting carried away with it will be people outside the camp. We know what we're doing and we'll carry on doing it."
