Ryan Woods has revealed that the Brentford squad have set a minimum points target of 66, one more than last season.
The Bees finished in ninth place last season with 65 points and are currently on 50 points with eight games to go.
And Woods is looking to make sure the west Londoners can better last season's efforts and demonstrate they have made progress this campaign.
“We want to do better than last season. We're 15 points off where we were last season. If it doesn't happen, so be it,” he said.
“I think you can see with the way we never celebrated the goals that got us back in the game (at Burton on Saturday) that we wanted more. We want to beat that target that we set.”
Woods is one of the prime candidates for player of the season but he will be enjoying the international break having played the most minutes of any outfield player this campaign.
He reflected: “I think the last couple of weeks I probably wasn't as good as I have been. There have been a lot of games in a short period of time.
“I'm not going to blame tiredness because at the end of the day it's about consistency and that's something I take pride in.
“I've got to work hard in training, enjoy the break and finish the eight games of the season on a high note.
“It (tiredness) may have played a part and it's been a long haul but I'll never blame anything else.
“It's about me being consistently good. I'll have the odd game where I'm not. I'm young, I've got to learn and I want to be the best player I want to be.”
Brentford's recent form has been underpinned by the form of Jota, Sergi Canos and Lasse Vibe and Woods knows that if they receive the ball then chances are likely to be created.
The midfielder said: “The three of them have been brilliant for us and have different things to offer.
“We know when we give them the ball that, nine times out of 10, something is going to happen.
“We've got tremendous ability in this young team and we need to be consistent and show the second half against Burton more often.”
