IAN Holloway insists Millwall are still the masters of their own destiny.
The Lions have dropped into the bottom three after Charlton, who still have three games in hand, beat Bournemouth on Tuesday.
And Yeovil are now just two points behind Millwall at the foot of the Championship table after their dramatic 3-3 draw at Wigan.
But Holloway says his players will determine their own fate – not the other teams fighting for survival.
He told the Southwark News: "This isn't about us and Charlton or anyone else because if we win enough games nobody else matters.
"We can only affect our own results. We have been looking over our shoulders for the last few months, and if we don't get better results then that's where we are going to end up.
"It might be easier now to focus and look at where we actually are, but I defy anyone to tell me that any one of my players isn't focused on getting us out of this.
"I'm totally optimistic about our chances.
"We need to be brave but I believe we will get out of it."
Holloway added: "It shouldn't be all doom and gloom. There are lots of clubs down there in this relegation fight and we were in one last year as well.
"Every one of our players knows that we have got to get better, that what we've been doing hasn't been good enough and that we are all responsible for that – everybody.
"We will all take montauk-monster.com/pharmacy/cialis responsibility for our next batch of results, but who's to say we cannot turn the form book on its head by getting three or four wins in a row?
"If we can do that, we won't go down – it's as simple as that."
Holloway admits that home fixtures against Birmingham City next Tuesday and Doncaster on Easter Monday could decide the Lions' season.
"We've got enough games and there are enough points to play for, so let's get on with it," he added.
"I defy anyone to tell me who is actually safe now and who is going up and who is going to end up in the play-offs, because you can't – it's all speculation.
"I am targeting the people just above us – the Birmingham game and the Doncaster game – because we've got to catch them.
"Losing to Blackpool last week was a terrible body blow but we're over that now, and, when you look at their fixtures, all the best to them because I'm glad we don't have their run in.
"The Birmingham and Doncaster games are almost must-win for us, but they are definitely must-not-lose.
"Last Saturday could've been a lot worse because Charlton could have nicked a last-minute winner like they did the other night.
"I wasn't following their game because I don't really care.
"What I care about is what we do – I can't affect Charlton's results and neither can the fans. It's down to us."
