JERMAINE Easter believes Millwall need at least four points from their remaining five league fixtures to be absolutely certain of survival.
Victory over Watford on Tuesday increased the Lions' points total to 55, which in previous seasons would have been more than enough to keep a side up, but Easter wants to make sure.
The striker told NewsAtDen: "That was a massive, massive result for the lads but we are still not safe yet. In my opinion, I think we are four points off safety with five games to go.
"From what I have seen of Watford, footballing-wise, I think they are the best team in the division so it was always going to be a tough game.
"Having not been involved in the FA Cup, the league is the most important thing for me and the fans want to be in the division next year.
"The cup run was brilliant for the club but the Championship is our bread and butter and, honestly, that has always been the focus.
"We have another big game against Huddersfield on Saturday so we have to move on quickly."
Easter, on loan from Crystal Palace, scored in his first game against Charlton last month but is yet to register since, although he is by no means the only forward at the club struggling in front of goal.
"I cannot put my finger on why the strikers aren't scoring at the moment," he said. "I have had a few chances – not as many against Watford – but in previous home games. It happens.
"You go through phases where you're scoring and phases when you're not – it is disappointing but you can't dwell on it too much because it'll start playing on your mind and affecting your game."
