"I'm not looking at what is behind us, I'm looking at what is in front of us," Knill told the club's official website.
"Can we catch those above us? Can we catch Bournemouth and Rochdale? Our aim is to be there, not what is happening behind us. We will dust ourselves off, move forward and move forward pretty quickly."
Knill has also confirmed that Stephen Dawson was withdrawn as a precaution with a tight hamstring at the weekend.
He added: "We have 16 games left and we want him for those 16 games. Instead of letting him play through it, we took him off and rested him and hopefully he will be ok for Friday (against Shrewsbury)."
