However, should the season resume after the coronavirus pandemic, Cash feels that a prolonged winning run will put the East Midlands side back into contention.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the right-sided player said: "We have got to take every game as it comes. If you win five in a row and Leeds and West Brom lose a couple then you are right in the frame again.
"Playoffs would be a great achievement from where we've been before. We have been nowhere near in the four or five years I have been here, but if we keep winning games you never know."
Cash has played a key part for Forest this campaign, contributing three goals and four assists from right-back. body check tags ::
