Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Derbyshire believes the club have a golden opportunity to climb the Premier League table.
Mark Hughes' side are currently 9th in the table, and take on Aston Villa on Wednesday evening.
The clash against Villa is the first of three consecutive games at home, and Derbyshire is sure that his team-mates can put together an impressive run of form.
"You get one win and then you get two wins, and you get more confident. And onto the next game you get belief that you can win your next games," he told Sky Sports News.
"There is no reason why we shouldn't be up there [the league table] again."
Meanwhile, Rovers midfielder David Dunn admits that Hughes' men do play a physical game, but believes they couple their aggression with attractive football.
"I think the manager and his staff would be the first to admit that they want us to compete and that they want us to be physical and strong," he said.
"But on the other side, when we do get the ball we do like to pass it around, and I think we are pretty entertaining as well."
