The defender told Sky Sports News: "If we keep playing like that, we will be fine. We have got a good enough team, we have got good enough players in the squad to make sure we don't go down.
"It is looking like it is going to be a low-points survival this year, but we still want to hit that 40-point mark to be sure.
"We just hope we keep playing well and picking up points away from home, and make sure our home form is a bit better."
