Barnet moved above Aldershot during the week with a win over Torquay.
The defender told BBC Surrey: "For me it's a driving force. There is nothing worse than looking at the table and seeing your team down there.
"Personally, it dents your pride. That pushes me and makes me want to do better and train harder.
"Barnet are a point ahead and there are another three or four teams above them who are within three or four points of us. It is tight, one result or one weekend could change everything."
Aldershot host Bradford City this afternoon.
