Despite having trips to Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur to contend with, Holt, who is on loan from Wigan Athletic, believes that last month's victory over Chelsea proves that they can get points in important fixtures.
"We're not chucking games away, we've got three games left of the season and it's in our own hands," the Birmingham Mail quotes Holt as saying.
"I'd rather be in our position than teams sitting down there with two games left. Look what we've done against the better sides, like Chelsea, and we can perform."
Villa will host Hull City this weekend.
