Derby boss Billy Davies is refusing to get carried away after his side returned to the top of the Championship.
The Rams beat Norwich 2-1 at Carrow Road on Tuesday night to go two points ahead of Birmingham, but Steve Bruce's men now have a game in hand and Davies knows a lot can happen between now and the end of the season.
"All I can say is we have another 10 games to go and hopefully there will be plenty more wins to celebrate if we keep concentrating and play as I know we can," he said.
Norwich took the lead through Chris Martin before two great strikes from ex-Manchester United midfielder David Jones gave Derby the lead.
"Norwich threw the kitchen sink at us for the last 10 or 15 minutes, but the lads stood up to be counted as they have done week in, week out this season and we came away with a hard-fought victory," he continued.
And Davies was particularly pleased with the efforts of the inspirational Jones.
"David Jones scored two excellent goals and then the lads have seen out the game.
"Jonah (Jones) is working on that sort of thing in training all the time, curling the ball in from the edge of the area.
"Like all the lads, he is always giving 100 per cent effort in training, and when the players do that they tend to get their reward out on the pitch."
