The Canberra Raiders have the belief they can push into the NRL top eight and make a finals charge.
It comes off the back of back-to-back wins for just the second time this season.
They'll see how injured duo Jack Wighton (ribs) and Xavier Savage (shoulder) go in Tuesday's training before deciding whether to name them for the Parramatta Eels game at the Gold Coast on Thursday night.
Raiders second-rower Hudson Young said they were determined to push for seventh and eighth on the NRL ladder - which were the likely finals spots up for the grabs in the run home.
The Raiders sit behind the eighth-placed Cronulla Sharks, who they beat on the weekend, on points differential.
Young felt like their combinations clicked in that win
"That's been our focus coming into the back end of the year is just to try and string as many wins together and try and push for that seventh or eighth spot," he said.
"I think we're more than capable of doing that. We've just got that belief in the team now and it's starting to show."

Fellow second-rower Corey Harawira-Naera said the Sharks win was crucial given it would've meant they were four points adrift of the eight if they lost.
But he said the chance they'd given themselves of pushing for those finals spots would be for nothing if they didn't continue their resurgent form against the fourth-placed Eels.
Their back-to-back wins came after a barron stretch of two wins in 11 games.
The Raiders have lost their past three games against Parramatta.
"The potential of losing that game meant [the Sharks] would've been four points in front of us, which would've made it a lot harder to get in," Harawira-Naera said.
"We've given ourselves a chance, but we know we've got to take it one week at a time - which leads into Parramatta on Thursday.
"But [Raiders coach Ricky Stuart] and everyone else was quite happy with the effort we put in on Saturday.
"It doesn't really mean anything if we don't back it up this Thursday."
