Darryl Duffy has told skysports.com that Bristol Rovers are still looking to clinch a play-off spot in League One.
Rovers are currently 15th in the table and just six points above the relegation zone but Duffy insists he is looking up rather than down.
The 24-year-old Scot and his team-mates are concentrating on Saturday's trip to high-flying Scunthorpe as they seek to improve their disappointing away form.
"We want to put our away form right, as we've not picked up many points on the road this season," Duffy told skysports.com.
"We want to win games but if we can't do that draws are crucial. Our positive results at the start of the season were mostly at home and we have to start turning losses into draws and draws into wins.
"But we'll approach every game the same knowing we need to win as many games as possible."
Rovers have games in hand on teams around them and a positive result at Glanford Park will give them a confidence boost for the upcoming fixtures.
After visiting the Iron, they have a home game against relegation-threatened Yeovil and then a trip to league leaders Leicester.
Duffy said: "As we have an outside chance of the play-offs, it could be a benefit to us that other teams are scrapping for points and it may open the games up. We have to take advantage of these situations and make it count."
Duffy has not experienced play-off football before, after gaining automatic promotion with both Swansea City last season and Falkirk in 2005.
But he admits running out at Wembley would be great, adding: "Of course I would love to play at Wembley; I would relish the whole experience.
"But it wouldn't matter if a Scotsman scored the winner, it would be a team effort and we have to make sure we try our best to get there."
