Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge believes his side can get back to September football, after an upset win over the ladder-leading Cats on Saturday night.

The Dogs beat Geelong by 16 points to record their third win from their past four starts, moving them to within one win of the top eight.

A finals berth would see the Dogs end their two-year drought from post-season football, following their 2016 premiership success.

Not only does Beveridge believe his side could find themselves inside the eight, but the premiership coach says the Dogs could win the majority of their remaining games to head into September on the back of some hot form.

“I think we’ve learnt a bit, there’s no doubt. You’ve got to be right on edge against everyone,” Beveridge told reporters following his side’s win over the Cats.

“But in recent times, everyone’s asking questions of the teams that we’re beating like they aren’t fronting up. We’re not a bad side.

“If we keep driving like we have been, there’s no reason why we can’t win most of them.”

Over the final seven weeks of the season, the Dogs face Melbourne (H), St Kilda (A), Fremantle (H), Brisbane (A), Essendon (A), GWS (A) and Adelaide (H).
