Brighton & Hove Albion striker Nicky Forster believes the Seagulls are close to becoming serious promotion contenders.
Albion moved to the fringes of the play-off places following a hard-fought 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Tuesday and Forster believes the omens are good for a season of success at the Withdean.
"We are not far away from being a team that can ask questions in this league," he told the Brighton Argus.
"Part of that is just about believing. We are a young squad and when we get that belief we are a good side.
"It is going to be tight all the way through this season. I imagine it will be like it until the last month and it will be the teams that find form towards the end of the final push that will make it.
"We have to make sure we are one of them."
