Victory in their game in hand would propel them to joint second and a point behind leaders Newcastle but Magilton remains firmly grounded.
He told the official website: "I'm not getting carried away by any stretch of the imagination. I'm very much a game-by-game manager.
"Of course players can't help but get affected by the media because it's so intense now. But I'm not getting carried away. You don't win anything at this time of the year.
"We have momentum which is a very important ingredient in football. We just have to keep it going, keep believing, keep working extremely hard in training and then try and get the results that we're getting."
