Paul Robinson is convinced Blackburn Rovers will beat relegation and stay in the Premier League this season.
Robinson suffered heart-break with Leeds when they were relegated in 2004 - just three years after the Yorkshire club had mixed it with Europe's elite in the Champions League semi-finals.
That Leeds team was full of quality including Mark Viduka, Alan Smith, Jermaine Pennant and James Milner, but as results went against the team, heads dropped and the team's morale crashed.
The former England goalkeeper thinks that it is a different case at Ewood Park and sees a determination to avoid the drop - as demonstrated by their fightback against Wigan on Saturday despite only having ten men.
He told the Daily Mirror: "It was very difficult (at Leeds) because of everything. But when I look at our dressing room, I see we've got a good spirit here.
"We've got a very, very good spirit and we've proved that with the way we kept battling. That's the spirit we're going to need to get out of this.
"We wanted all three points as we saw this as a winnable game. But as it panned out, going down to ten and the circumstances of the game, it's definitely a point gained.
"I think we were disappointed with the way we played in the first half. But second half, we showed the right attitude and application with ten men. If we show that from the start of games with 11 men, we're not going to be far away."
