The Wolves have won their past two games, including a fine 3-0 victory over Werder Bremen, to climb to sixth, but Allofs was keen to point out that a defeat could slow any progress.
"[The Bremen win is] fantastic, there are no two ways about it," Allofs told Bundesliga.com. "It's great to see that we're developing step by step.
"However, if we lose two in a row, then we slip right back down into the lower regions."
Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga in 2009.
