Jobi McAnuff says Reading will keep their focus and not get distracted by the Championship table as they look for their ninth successive league win.
In-form Reading travel to Doncaster on Tuesday knowing victory could take them above second-placed West Ham and level on points with leaders Southampton.
But the Royals captain insists there is no talk of promotion inside the camp.
"The media can talk of promotion, but the gaffer will not let us get carried away," McAnuff told BBC Berkshire.
The 30-year-old added: "You can't afford to think like that because things can change very quickly. Especially the amount of games we've got coming up in such a short space of time.
"From our point of view we are just taking one game at a time."
