The Sicilian giants beat Sampdoria 3-0 on Thursday to extend their winning run at La Favorita to five games.
They lie sixth in the standings, just two points behind Roma, who hold the last Champions League qualifying spot.
Delio Rossi's side have taken seven points from a possible nine in their last three matches and will fancy their chances of claiming another positive result tomorrow.
"Although it won't be easy because Chievo will be desperate to return to victory, we want to continue to do well in the new year and are confident we can," Miccoli said.
"This month will be fundamental for us to see how far we can go.
"We must look to give continuity to our performances and also pick up some good results."
Rossi is expected to keep changes to the side that beat Samp this week to a minimum although the visitors will have to overcome the absence of striker Mauricio Pinilla.
Josip ilicic and Javier Pastore will play in support of Miccoli in Palermo's attack.
Chievo, meanwhile, have taken just two points from their last five games and their 2-0 defeat to Udinese in the last round dropped the Flying Donkeys to 12th in the standings.
The men from Verona never tested Udinese goalkeeper Samir Handanovic on Thursday, much to the anger of Chievo coach Stefano Pioli.
"This is not the way we wanted to start the year," Pioli said. "We repeated our usual mistakes and despite having several opportunities, we didn't even find the target once.
"We must get back to basics and play better.
"I expect an immediate reaction."
