"We know that over that period, there hasn't been anyone significantly better than us in the whole league"
Kieran McKenna says Town's form over the last 12 matches should give his players confidence for the remainder of the campaign.
Since arriving as manager, the Blues have picked up an average of two points per game - form that would see Town finish on 75 points if they were to maintain that for the rest of the season.
"You see teams go on runs every year," the Blues boss said.
"We can use those external references if we want to, but really I think we can look at ourselves.
"We've had 12 games, and, if you look at most objective markers over those 12 games, we're one of the best performing teams in the league. If you look at the balance between chances created and expected goals, as well as chances against us, we're right up there.
"We know that over that period, there hasn't been anyone significantly better than us in the whole league.
"I think we can take confidence from ourselves. We need to look at how we've played and in terms of points, not many have picked up more than us in those 12 games.
"I think we’ve probably left a few points out there as well. Our performances have probably been even better than the points total that we’ve gained, but even having said that we’ve had a decent return.
"We’ve lost two games out of 12 and we’re picking up two points a game. We’re in a healthy position in terms of results but especially in terms of performances. I think we should take confidence from that.
"Things can happen in each game, but over the long haul, if you perform well and create chances, you're going to win plenty of games. That's where our focus is."
