Morten Gamst Pedersen insists spirits are high in the Blackburn camp despite Rovers having not yet secured Premier League safety.
Steve Kean's men, currently 16th in the standings, travel to fellow relegation candidates West Ham on Saturday having won just one of their last 11 league encounters.
That solitary victory came against Bolton last weekend, with Rovers playing out a 1-0 triumph at Ewood Park courtesy of Martin Olsson's early goal.
Norwegian winger Pedersen says that win has provided a timely boost to the Lancashire club, and insists he and his team-mates are feeling buoyed ahead of their trip to East London.
He said in the Daily Star: "Now that we won the last match against Bolton we all got an uplift. So the mood in the squad is great at the moment.
"Everybody knows, of course, that it is important for us to look ahead and focus on the next game, and that we can't rest a single second.
"But it is equally important that we take care of the good feeling we have right now.
"Therefore, the cook was at the butcher's and the fish market this week, and he surprised us with a barbeque in the nice weather after training.
"There was so much good food and the mood, of course, was great among everyone going into the West Ham game."
