"We have the fighting spirit," the defender told the club's official website.
"We have 14 games now and we will give 100 per cent until the end.
"Until it's mathematically impossible, I will not rule us out.
"We know it will be hard. I am a realist too. I think we need three wins on the bounce and then things start to change.
"Norwich is next up - a tough game at the weekend - and if we get three points there it will be a nice start.
"A lot of people have said that the players don't care. I think we showed at West Ham that we fight until the end - whether we have 11 or 10 men on the pitch.
"We did that. But unfortunately we didn't get anything out of the game."
