David Button believes that his performances will have a bearing on where Brentford finish the season, but insists everyone must raise their game.
The Bees are on a poor run of results, having won only two of their last ten games, their latest loss coming in a 1-0 defeat at home to fellow strugglers Blackburn.
But the 27-year-old has been one of the stand out performers from an otherwise forgettable season, and he thinks that everyone must put in the hard work until the end of the season.
He said: “My performance will have a bearing on where we end up this year - I think everyone’s will.
“Come now to the end of the season everyone has to raise their game and put in the hard work from now till the end of the season.
“I'm doing okay and trying my hardest but it's a team game and there's no rewards if we keep losing.
“We’ll have to pick ourselves up and go again, we have a couple of weeks gap now and we'll work hard on the training ground.”
The Brentford stopper, who made a save of the season contender at Preston, also believes that the standard of goalkeeping has gotten higher in the Championship, and that it's pushing him on to greater heights.
He added: “There's a lot of good goalies in the league and with a lot of foreigners coming into the Premier League a few of them have had to drop down so there's some good talent in the league.
“In a way it's pushing me on but I have to just concentrate on myself and do what I can but at the same time it's always good to play against top quality keepers and compare yourself against them.”
