Nottingham Forest defender Eric Lichaj says his personal objective is simply to maintain consistency between now and the end of the season.
Aged 27, Lichaj has plenty of time on his side but also extensive experience behind him.
But any talk of him being in his prime is lost on the American, who just wants to carry on playing at a high standard for the good of the club.
He said: “I just want to stay consistent. As a defender that’s quite hard – I might have some hiccups here and there – but I just need to keep doing the things I’ve been doing after my little blip at the start of the season.
“That’s what I want to be doing and hopefully the results of the team will reflect that.
“I’m still learning. Some people say I should be in my prime as a defender but I don’t really look at it like that. I just want to play well for this club.”
Lichaj has endeared himself to supporters with his committed performances since his arrival in 2013.
And he says he couldn’t be more content on Trentside: “The family’s happy, and that makes me happier. I just want to give this club something back for what it’s given my family. We feel very welcome here.
“The run of results at the start of the season wasn’t the best from my point of view or the fans’.
“Hopefully we can give this city something to cheer about.”
