Joel Lynch says Huddersfield Town have plenty to play for in their final two Championship matches.
David Wagner’s side head to Bristol City on Saturday before playing host to Brentford on May 7.
Town, who have 51 points, can’t match their best tally since returning to the second tier of 58 in 2012-13.
But they could seal their highest final position in the four seasons since they rose from League I.
They head to Bristol in 16th place, where they ended up a year ago after being 19th in 2013 and 17th 12 months later.
And centre-back Lynch says the last two games are just as important as the previous 44, of which Town have won 13 and drawn 12.
The 28-year-old said: “We’ll go into these next two games wanting to win and with the right attitude.
“We aren’t on holiday yet and we want to end the season with as many points as possible.
“I think we’re playing positively and improving our style of play. Our results and the unbeaten run (four games) shows that.
“We have to keep that going and gain some momentum going into next season with two final wins or at the least staying unbeaten.”
Town have drawn three out of their last four, including Saturday’s 1-1 home stalemate with Birmingham City.
Lynch accepts those kind of games must be won if Town are to become a genuine force.
“It’s another game that has slipped past and we should have taken three points,” he said. “That’s been our season.
“For us to be a top-half team we have to win games like that.
“It’s good to get a point because in the past we’d have been beaten.
“But I think we should be beating teams when we’re on top.”
