Teddy Sheringham says it's vital we kick on from our promising position in the Premiership.
Europe is the target with us sitting seventh, just a point behind Liverpool in sixth and three adrift of Everton in fifth.
Fulham are next at the Lane on Monday in what the skipper describes as a must-win game.
Teddy insisted: "We put ourselves in a good position last season as well and it didn't quite happen after that.
"This is a must-win situation for us. We're going into a game we'll be expected to win and should win but haven't always won.
"We have to make sure our performance is high and we're fully concentrated.
"As I've said before our good football and good play should come out on top but it doesn't always work like that.
"We beat them three times last year and they got their own back over there so we don't want them turning the tables on us and beating us twice."
