Sunderland defender Anton Ferdinand sees no reason why the club cannot finish seventh in the Premier League table.
The Black Cats have enjoyed a fine campaign so far and Steve Bruce's charges currently sit well-placed in seventh, five points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.
Sunderland are now on a four-game unbeaten run and Ferdinand insists his team-mates are brimming with confidence.
Although they were held by Everton last Monday they claimed a 3-0 success at Chelsea before that and Ferdinand believes their recent results demonstrate their potential.
"You can see in the confidence of the lads when we step out on to the pitch that we are not afraid to play against anyone," he said.
"That showed against Chelsea and again against Everton.
"We can look higher than just finishing in the top 10, but we need to take each game as it comes, make sure we keep playing well and keep playing the way we have done.
"Hopefully we won't get a patch like we did last season. If we don't get that, then we are more than capable of finishing anywhere within the top seven."
