Joel Lynch wants Huddersfield Town to “take another step towards becoming a good Championship side”.
The centre-back believes that’s the target between now and the end of the season, the club’s fourth in succession at second-tier level.
Lynch was signed from Nottingham Forest by Simon Grayson in the wake of promotion from League I in 2012.
And the 28-year-old Wales international who has topped 100 games for the club is optimistic about the future under David Wagner.
The German head coach is the fourth man at the helm in Brighton and Hove Albion product Lynch’s time at Town.
“We are still a work in progress, but I feel we are improving,” he said ahead of Saturday’s visit of Wolves.
“While our results have been up and down, I feel we are close to becoming a good side at this level.”
Lynch, who enjoyed a 2-0 win at his former club Forest on Saturday, says it’s enjoyable playing under Wagner.
“I think all the lads like the style of football we are playing,” he said.
“We are all able to get on the ball that bit more, and when they system works, there are always options.
“It’s all about individuals doing their jobs for the benefit of the team, and it’s a good feeling.”
Town, who are 17th, have their sights on another clean sheet against 12th-placed Wolves.
Molineux manager Kenny Jackett has lost his 10-goal top scorer Benik Afobe, the former Town loan striker, to Bournemouth.
Ad he has challenged his other strikers, Bjorn Sigurdarson, Joe Mason and Adam Le Fondre, to hit the goal trail.
Icelander Sigurdarson has yet to net this season after returning from a back injury.
Mason has two since moving from Cardiff City last month and the experienced Le Fondre three.
“We do need someone to go on a goal run,” he said. “That’s the challenge for them, getting more shots and goals in.”<p/> <p/>
