Neil said: “Everyone is looking at it as if if we must win the next one or two to hit the play-off positions. The fact is there are 12 games left. Whether we get in just now or in a few weeks time my only concern is that at the end of these next 12 games we are in the play-off positions. If it takes us to the last game then that is when it will be important.”

The Scot, who has been linked with the vacant managerial job at Rangers, added: “Of course it (the top-six) is attainable We have five of the top six still left to play so it is still in our own hands.”
