Rotherham boss Paul Warne does not want to dampen dreams, but says it is far too early to be talking about promotion.
The Millers, after a tricky opening month, are beginning to fire in League One and six wins from their last eight games has seen them surge up to fourth in the table.
Most teams below them have games in hand, though, and on 21 points they are only four better off than MK Dons down in 17th.
Warne is encouraged by what he has seen from his side, but is keen to temper expectation.
Asked whether his side can mount a promotion challenge, the boss said: “I don’t know, we are only in the first week of October, I am not try to wee on dreams but we need to keep performing.
“The pressure is on us to keep performing at home and winning which isn’t going to be easy because teams are going to set up to frustrate and we need to keep picking up points away from home.
“But if you’d have asked me at the start of the season if we’d have been fourth at the start of October I obviously would have taken it, so I am pleased and everyone at the club should be pleased.”
