Fulham currently lie ninth in the standings after Saturday's late 2-1 victory against in-form Wigan and have four games remaining.
Senderos' header in the 89th minute secured the three points and the defender reckons the Whites could equal their best-ever finish.
"We have to be ambitious," the Switzerland international said.
"We have a great quality in the team and our home form has been brilliant this season. If we continue like this and playing well and getting goals like our forwards have been doing then I think we have got a chance (of finishing seventh).
"It is up to us now to see where we are going to finish. We have very important games until the end of the season and we are an ambitious team.
"We have very good players and hopefully we can look forward to the top rather than looking backwards."
