MARTYN Woolford is doubly determined to keep Millwall in the Championship.
The winger has been a shining light for the Lions this campaign, top-scoring with eight goals and making more appearances (36) than any other outfield player.
But he admits his personal plaudits will count for little if the side is relegated.
"At the end of the day it is a team game, so if the team goes down I am not going to be able to say 'well, I had a good season' because I'll be in League One," he said.
"So yeah, I'm fighting to stay up for that reason as well. Where the team finishes at the end of the season is more important than my personal achievements.
"The only stat that matters is on which side of the relegation line we finish."
Woolford's strong season makes him a contender for the Player of the Year award.
"Winning it would mean a lot," he admitted.
"The fans are the ones watching the games in week in, week out, so if they decided I'd been the best player this year that would be a great achievement for me."
The 28-year-old, who salvaged a point with a late equaliser against Watford last weekend, is hoping the Lions continue their good form at Middlesbrough on Saturday.
"If we keep picking up points like we are, we'll keep up the pressure on the teams just above us and they'll bound to feel a little bit nervy then," he added.
"We need to keep this run going. Hopefully things have turned at the perfect time for us because we could have been dead and buried by now.
"The lads are showing that we won't give up without a fight and we still believe that we can stay up."
