Wins over Peterborough and Barnsley – which sandwiched a draw at Derby – have sent Pompey to the League One summit.
It means that there will certainly be a feelgood factor around Fratton Park when Lincoln visit on Saturday.
But Joe Morrell knows that with 38 games still left to play this season, the Blues have not achieved anything yet.
And although the midfielder admits that they are in a good place, he is going to keep his feet firmly on the ground.
The Wales international said: “We’ve had a good week, but it’s a long season and we’re certainly not getting carried away – we’ll leave that to others.
“Our past three games have all been against top teams at this level, so obviously we’re pleased as in my time at the club, we haven’t taken many points off those kind of sides.
“Now it’s just about keeping our heads down and continuing to work on those areas where we know we can still do better.
“Of course it’s a good feeling to win at a place like Barnsley – and we were pleased with the result – but it’s just three points at the end of the day and the next one is just as important.
"We’ve had a good week, but it’s a long season and we’re certainly not getting carried away – we’ll leave that to others."
“There will be high expectations from the crowd against Lincoln on Saturday and it’s up to us to try to meet them.
“The message coming from all the staff and players is that this is a tough division and it’s a long old slog.
“Our ambition is to get promoted and you find that the best teams don’t just perform in one-off games – they do it throughout the season.
“It’s about backing those results up and one thing we do have is a great squad with plenty of depth, but there won’t be any complacency.
“I do think the personality and mentality in the group means that we’re better set than we were last season.
“We’re not going to go 46 games unbeaten, so the important thing is that when we do have those moments of adversity, the response is positive.”
Morrell returned to the side at Oakwell after serving a one-match ban following his red card in the win over Peterborough.
He said: “After the MK Dons last season it was probably one of the worst feelings I’ve had in football because the sending off was my fault and a stupid thing to do. That’s what I need to eradicate.
“But I’m a midfielder who has to play on the edge and I can deal with the Peterborough one. I can look myself in the mirror and know it wasn’t intentional.”
