But they have another opportunity to do so tomorrow night when they play their rearranged game against Aberdeen at Pittodrie and Olejnik believes they can keep the pressure on their relegation rivals.
"We're not miles adrift, that's the good thing," Olejnik said.
"We have got to take the positives. I know we're bottom of the table but we're not seven, eight points adrift.
"It's good to keep applying the pressure, it's just up to us to do it.
"The other results have been going for us, with Kilmarnock drawing at Hamilton for example, so none of those teams have got too far ahead of us.
"We are just looking to get points and hopefully we can do that in the next couple of games."
Despite Falkirk's position, Olejnik has kept six clean sheets in the SPL this season, as many as Celtic's Artur Boruc, and he feels his game is benefiting from an extended spell in the first team.
"Personally, it's good to get a run of games because for the last two seasons I have not really had that, it's been 10 games and that was it.
"It's good to get a longer run. It's been a bit inconsistent at the beginning of the season.
"I think I have found a bit of consistency now and I'm looking to continue that."
The Pittodrie game is Falkirk's sixth in 18 days but Olejnik is not complaining about the schedule.
"It's good because you don't have to wait a whole week," the 23-year-old said.
"I think the boys look forward to that. We had quite a bit of rest over Christmas, it was nearly 20 days without a game.
"We had to play bounce games so the boys could get match fitness.
"It's a little bit different for me because I don't have to run as much but I like playing Saturday-Tuesday."
