We can't rest on playoff qualification - LA Galaxy's Donovan

LA Galaxy captain Landon Donovan feels that his team have a lot to work on despite qualifying for the 2012 MLS playoffs.

The reigning champions made it four finals series in the last four years courtesy of their 4-2 win over Toronto FC on the weekend but with four regular season fixtures left and CONCACAF Champions League play to contend with, Donovan knows there is plenty of work to do.

"We don't have the luxury of admiring anything we're doing or thinking we're great. Because we're still far away from where we want to be," said Donovan who is well aware that the Western Conference's top five is still to be sorted.

"There's a lot going on with seeding. There's a lot going on with our conference that could matter in the end. So we've got to keep winning games.

"Right now our mentality is good, our attitude is good. We're confident. And we've just got to go on the field and perform. It's really as simple as that."
