Danny Gabbidon is targeting a run in the Crystal Palace team and a successful end to the season.
The defender has struggled with injuries since moving to Selhurst Park, but was back in the side on Saturday and scored his first league goal in eight years in the 2-2 draw with Leicester.
Despite their poor recent form, Palace remain in the play-off places and Gabbidon wants to help them get over the line.
"As a footballer you always want to play," he said.
"It's been a stop-start kind of season for me. I joined late and the team was doing really well and I couldn't really get in the team which was understandable, and when I did play a few games I ended up getting injured which was disappointing.
"It's been a bit of an up and down season but the lads have been fantastic. I'd like to stay in the team if I can."
