Hayden Mullins believes Portsmouth have got enough positivity and experience in their ranks to stay in the Premier League.
Pompey currently sit in 15th place, just three points outside the drop zone, but can take heart from last Saturday's 2-1 home victory over Everton.
Mullins also believes the South Coast club have enough seasoned professionals, including veterans David James, Sylvain Distin and Sol Campbell, to pull away from relegation trouble.
The 30-year-old told the club's official website: "We've got players who have played at the highest level for so long. They know what's required to win a game.
"There's so much experience in our squad and there are so many really good players here.
"It's a delicate position that we're in but I think we're good enough to pull away from danger.
"We've definitely got the quality to beat the drop but we can't be complacent. We're hanging above the drop zone and we need to get away from it as quickly as we can.
"It's a club that needs Premier League football and that's what we're trying our hardest to ensure.
"We've beaten Everton and if we can go on a run now then we should be okay."
He added: "If you're not right mentally then that can be just as bad as not being right physically.
"But we're all in good spirits and focused on getting safe. Everybody's in the right frame of mind for the remaining games.
"The league we're in now is the best league in the world. Relegation would be awful but it's not something that we're thinking about. We're staying positive."
