Ramon Nunez wants to play his part in keeping Scunthorpe up after extending his loan stay at Glanford Park until the end of the season.
The 25-year-old has already made four appearances for the Iron since joining the Championship strugglers for an initial month from parent club Leeds United.
After prolonging his stay on Tuesday, the Honduran, who scored his first goal for Alan Knill's side in Saturday's crucial 2-1 win at Crystal Palace, is now looking to push on against next opponents Coventry on Friday.
He told the club's official website: "The first target is to stay up and take every game as it comes. Every game has to be taken as a cup final.
"Goal-wise and assist-wise I don't really set myself targets because I'm not here for personal success but for Scunthorpe United to stay in this division.
"Hopefully we'll have a repeat performance of Saturday. It's a great incentive that we'll go level on points with Crystal Palace and be even closer to staying up."
As regards staying on at Scunthorpe, Nunez added: "I'm delighted to stay here until the end of the season. I've said it during my time here that I'm having a great time.
"I'm playing as part of a team with everything to play for and they're doing a good job.
"Initially I would have liked to signed for the club until the end back in March.
"I just hoped though for the first month that I'd play a lot of football and make a valuable contribution to the side's performances.
"Leeds hasn't said anything to me about my future next season so it's just a case of playing here until the end and sorting it out come the end of the season."
