After losing the likes of Clint Dempsey, Mousa Dembele and Danny Murphy last summer, the Whites have struggled for consistency this season.
Good patches at the start of the campaign and over the Christmas period were both followed by a run of poor results, including the current streak that has seen them fail to win since April 1.
They head to Swansea on the back of five successive defeats and Jol is targeting three points that would highlight the decent work they have done in difficult circumstances.
"I would love to have a good result over there," Jol said. "That would put everything in perspective again if we could finish this season off on 43 points.
"Look at all the other teams around us - 39 points, 40, 41, 43. Swansea is probably the first team of that and could finish in the top eight if they beat us.
"It will be a boost for us if we can win and for the 800 or 900 fans we take with us.
"Last year we had a big problem and we managed to get these players in on loan and everyone was happy.
"Later, it probably turned a bit against us because we had too many players on loan and we knew that. It is not a healthy situation but that was the situation and we still managed to stay in the league and get 40 points.
"I can explain these indifferent results but, on the other hand, it is a result-related business.
"The difference between us and Swansea is the game at Craven Cottage. They've got 46 points, we've got 40.
"We were the first team that had more possession against them, but two goals due to our defence gave them the win.
"If we had won, we would have both been on 43 points but they [according to pundits] were fantastic and we were useless this season. That is the Premier League, it is a thin line."
One player that could prove the difference in south Wales is Swansea's Wayne Routledge, who the Dutchman signed when manager of Tottenham eight years ago.
The 28-year-old struggled at White Hart Lane and, after spells with a number of clubs, is starting to show his potential, with an England call-up reported to be close.
"He was a late developer but I have not been surprised," Jol said. "I had him at Spurs and he was a good player, but I had Aaron Lennon there in his position.
"He went on, had a lot of clubs and never seemed to settle down at other clubs. He had four or five.
"I took him from Crystal Palace on a free and Andy Johnson was there at the time and he was a big talent then.
"Now he has fulfilled his potential, plays in that hole now as his position was always on the right.
"Now he plays on the left, in the hole behind the striker and is quick, dynamic and scores a couple of goals as well."
Kieran Richardson will miss tomorrow's trip to the Liberty Stadium with a hamstring injury, while long-term absentees Mahamadou Diarra, Ashkan Dejagah and Simon Davies remain out. Steve Sidwell is suspended for the game.
