Victory over Portsmouth lifted the club to ninth, just six points off a Champions League place.
Pulis knows there is a long way to go, however.
"I always say you have to get the points to make you safe. Ideally you do it in the least number of games and then you can push on again," he said.
"Don't get too carried away with what we are doing, we are not there yet.
"The important thing is - and I keep on saying it - we need to be in this league three years to build the foundations for this club to push on.
"Money-wise that will give us the base for this club to drive forward."
