Higginbotham was in the Derby County side that dropped out of the top-flight, but believes that Saints will continue to fight for their Premiership survival.
"We have been poor recently and the manager (Harry Redknapp) has had a go at us defensively. You can see his point," said Higginbotham.
"We know we are a match for anybody in the league on our day and if it takes three wins from the last three games to stay up, that is what we will aim at.
"I was relegated with Derby a few years ago. It was confirmed at Anfield in a defeat by Liverpool and I remember how it felt in the dressing room afterwards.
It was the lowest point of my career and I don't want that feeling again."
Southampton face relegation rivals Norwich City this weekend, in what is a critical match at the bottom of the table.
"We just have to go out there believing we can do it. Norwich will come to St Mary's really wound up," he added.
"They are in great form just now after beating United, Charlton and Newcastle, but not many batter us at home and we fancy our chances."
