MK Dons defender Dean Lewington thinks that he and his team-mates can catch leaders Leicester City, but insists they will only do so by concentrating on their own game.
Roberto Di Matteo's side currently find themselves nine points behind the Foxes but Lewington is optimistic the title race is not yet over.
He told skysports.com: "There's every chance we can catch Leicester, but we're just looking at ourselves.
"We can't worry about other teams. We have to make sure we get our own job done, win our own games and then we won't have to bother about anybody else."
Currently lying in second place, MK Dons have a couple of days rest before they travel to Tranmere Rovers at the weekend.
Whereas their rivals around them all play in midweek, Lewington feels their lack of a game could be an advantage.
"We have a very busy March - playing eight games - but in the immediate future, Tranmere could be tired playing three games in seven days and it could be a help to us.
"But in fairness, we won't be resting on our laurels and will approach the game like any other fixture."
"The mission at the start of the season was to be in the top half, so we're delighted with how things have gone. We obviously won't complain if we do finish second, as it will mean an automatic promotion spot, but we'll be taking each game as it comes."
