Billy Davies is not getting carried away by his start since returning as Nottingham Forest manager.
Davies has won seven points from three matches, one of the victories being a 6-1 hammering of Huddersfield, since being appointed for a second spell in charge at the beginning of this month.
Forest are now just four points shy of the play-off places in the Championship with 12 games to go, but the Scot is keeping his feet on the ground.
"We are pleased with the start we have made and we are pleased with the response we have had from the players," Davies said after seeing his side win 2-0 at Charlton on Saturday. "But I have been too long in this game to know that a couple of wins or a couple of losses can send you in both directions.
"We will not get carried away. There is still a lot of hard work to do. I want to assess a lot of things at this club and that will happen in the coming weeks.
"But we will keep working hard. We know where we are, we know what we have to do and with 12 games to go, we will do the best we can."
Davies paid tribute to his side's defence following Saturday's clean sheet.
"It was a very important clean sheet," said Davies. "We asked (the players) for it before the game. We probably deserved it in our last two matches, but a little bit of slackness in our play cost us dearly.
"But I am pleased for the back five because we have worked hard this week on certain aspects of our game. It will give them a bit of confidence.
"Karl (Darlow) is a young player and we know what he needs. But you can talk about him, the back four, the front two - it was a great team effort and a great team performance from back to front."
