Everton manager David Moyes urged his side to maintain their momentum after a 2-0 win over Bolton Wanderers lifted the Toffees up to eighth place in the Premier League table.
Goals from Mikel Arteta and Steven Pienaar secured a seventh win in ten league games for Moyes' side, who still harbour hopes of finishing in the top seven and possibly qualifying for the Europa League.
Moyes told the club's official website: "If we could win the majority of our games we will be close to the top places, but we need other teams to slip up as well.
"We have gone above Birmingham, but we went above them a few weeks ago and then went behind them again.
"The job is to catch the teams above and if we keep playing the way we have been doing then we will have a chance.
"I think we are the form team in the Premier League over the last ten or 12 games."
