Grant McCann has challenged his Hull City team to put a run of league wins together, starting against Burton Albion.
The Tigers have won seven and lost three of their opening 10 league matches and sit fifth heading into today’s game against the second-bottom Brewers.
Hull City will play a further nine league matches before the end of the year – as well as at least two cup ties.
McCann wants to put as many points on the board as possible during this hectic period.
And the 40-year-old has called for his players to produce the kind of consistency that saw the Tigers win their opening four league matches.
“When you come into this period over November/December/January, going on a winning streak of six, seven, eight games, that’s when you can start propelling yourself up to the top end of the league. That’s what we want to do,” said McCann.
“We’ve got some tough fixtures coming up.
“The fixtures are gruelling sometimes, particularly after Burton, we’ve got to travel to MK Dons away and Ipswich away – it’s back-to-back away games again.
“We want to keep momentum, which we’re showing at the minute, and try to get on that winning streak again that we showed in the first four games.”
