Coventry City striker Clive Platt is hoping history repeats itself this season after he helped MK Dons avoid relegation seven years ago.
The Sky Blues have recently been anchored to the foot of the Championship table, but a last-gasp 2-1 win over promotion-chasing Leeds on Tuesday night saw them close the gap to six points from safety.
However, experienced target man Platt has prevailed in a similar predicament before having featured for the Dons when they avoided relegation to League Two on the final day of the 2004/05 season.
The 34-year-old believes that being part of a side that manages to beat the drop in the final stages of the season can be viewed as a huge accomplishment.
"That is everyone's plan because no one is planning on getting relegated at the end of the season, that's for sure," Platt told Sky Sports.
"It isn't something which you like to have on the CV or look back on with any pride, but avoiding relegation can be a highlight.
"I was at MK Dons when we beat the drop on the final day of the season after beating Tranmere and to replicate that type of feat would be amazing.
"Every game from now till the end of the season is like a cup final and we need to make sure that we can pick up as many points as possible to give ourselves a chance of staying up."
The Sky Blues have had to adapt to the loss of key players such as Lukas Jutkiewicz this season, with youngster such as Cyrus Christie and Gael Bigirimana given the chance to shine, which Platt believes will benefit the club in the future.
He added: "The likes of Nathan Cameron, Cyrus Christie, Gael Bigirimana, Conor Thomas and Chris Hussey have been doing great this year and we've just got to keep it going now because they are gaining confidence with every game.
"It is a results business at the end of the day and that is all that matters now, so hopefully we can start putting points on the board more regularly and climb out of the drop zone before the season's over."
