Egyptian forward Gedo secured a 1-0 win over Charlton to keep them in the top two of the Championship - three points above Watford.

Bruce is aware that such a lofty position was not widely anticipated at the start of the campaign, but expects at least one of the automatic promotion places will go to a side who started the year unfancied.

"We were 40-1 outsiders at the start of the season," said Bruce. "People didn't give us a hope in hell but we're there or thereabouts.

"With another week gone we're still there. February is nearly gone and we'll see where we go.

"I can't see a reason why we can't go up. We've got 14 games to go and we probably have to win seven of them. We've got a chance, a good chance, but so do a few others.

"There's been two outstanding results from Crystal Palace and from Watford too today. Nobody predicted Hull, Palace and Watford would be chasing Cardiff but there we are.

"The Championship is a level playing field. That is the beauty of it, how hard it is."
