With Bolton sitting in the European spots, boss Owen Coyle is refusing to make any judgment on a 15 game-old campaign.
But Knight is relishing heading to Manchester City next weekend with the chance to leapfrog the big spenders.
Knight said: "The boys are enjoying the attention and being where we are in the table.
"City only picked up a point at Stoke, so if we beat them, we can leap above them.
"You might not have thought, at the start of the season, we could be in this position but we've adjusted our goals now.
"Knowing we can go fourth with a win is a huge incentive."
