Aberdeen striker Steve Lovell accepts he will not be offered a new contract unless he improves his goals output.
Lovell's current deal expires at the end of the season and he has yet to hold talks regarding an extension with Pittodrie boss Jimmy Calderwood.
He has scored just twice in 15 SPL appearances this term, although the 27-year-old has only started on four occasions.
The former Dundee forward did net against Falkirk in the Scottish Cup on Saturday and concedes he must continue in the same vein in order to secure a new deal.
"I still need to speak to the manager about my future and I'd imagine that will take place in the next few weeks," said Lovell in the Daily Record.
"I won't go and speak to him. I will just wait and see what happens.
"This was my first start for a while and I just hope I can stay in the team as it's been a tough season for me.
"I haven't had a good season goal-wise and that's something I want to change. I'm disappointed about that, but I will always work hard.
"If you don't do the business then you won't be offered a contract."
