Boss Sean Dyche believes Burnley can get into the top six this season if they continue to work hard.
The Clarets entertain Birmingham City on Saturday, having faced them at St Andrew's only a month ago when a Nikola Zigic equaliser in the 89th minute stopped Burnley from taking all three points.
Since then, Dyche's side have only lost once in the league, winning four out of five Championship fixtures and conceding one goal in those games.
The Clarets boss believes that anyone can climb into the play-off places, saying: "This season has a kind of different feel so it will be interesting to see how it pans out over the next 18 games.
"It makes it a good prospect for anyone to really challenge themselves to go hard and we are certainly showing signs of it and that won't be something that is stopping, because we believe in the team going hard for every game that can go their way."
Dyche may be able to welcome back 23-goal talisman Charlie Austin to his side at Turf Moor on Saturday, the striker having returned to training this week.
