Birmingham defender Liam Ridgewell has pledged that his side will not let up as the season draws to a close.
The Blues have exceeded all expectations this season, sitting in the top half of the table and are certain to be playing Premier League football in the next campaign.
Ridgewell scored the equaliser in Birmingham's 1-1 draw with Liverpool at St Andrews on Sunday, making it 13 league games unbeaten at home for Alex McLeish's side.
But the 25-year-old insisted that the team will not rest on their laurels and take it easy from now until the end of the season, with Europe still a possible target.
"If nothing comes out of the season we've got to try and finish it well, finish as high as we can," he said in the Birmingham Mail.
"We've got to try and catch Everton above us, rather than look backwards. That's our target."
The Blues' home form has been an essential part of their rise up the table, having not lost there since Bolton won at the end of September - a record Ridgewell is keen to prolong.
"It would be fantastic if we could stay unbeaten at St Andrews. That would be something good to focus on as well. I don't see why we can't do it.
"Our home form speaks for itself and we proved again that whoever the opposition are, it's not easy for them."
