Dejan Stefanovic feels Portsmouth's Premiership future will rest on how they perform at Fratton Park in the final weeks of the season.
Pompey have found some good form in recent weeks and Saturday's 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers extended their unbeaten run to four games.
Harry Redknapp's side would have taken all three points had their finishing been better, but Stefanovic is happy with how they are performing at present.
"We played well and created a lot of chances," he told Sky Sports News. "Credit to Blackburn, they are a good side, but we came back twice and we scored two goals.
"At the end of the day, we have taken a point, so we have got to be happy."
Stefanovic passed up a golden opportunity when heading over from six yards and the Serbian star was disappointed not to hit the target.
"I am disappointed, I jumped too early, but it does not matter now, it is all over, we have taken a point and we are looking forward to the next game," he added.
"We have excellent spirit, we play well, create chances and score goals and we must keep going like this.
"Home form is crucial. It has kept us in The Premiership for the last two years and we must keep going.
"We have another four games at home and I hope we can take the points to survive in The Premiership."
Gregory Vignal, meanwhile, is unhappy at failing to secure regular playing time at Fratton Park.
"Last year I was at Rangers, one of the biggest clubs in the world," said the defender. "I played 45 games, we won the Scottish League title, the League Cup and played in the Uefa Cup.
"Now I don't play because the manager has different views on who should be in the team.
"You don't leave Rangers to play in Pompey's reserves."
