Harry Redknapp says four wins will guarantee Tottenham remain in the Premier League.
Spurs are just two points clear of the drop zone as they prepare to host Middlesbrough on Wednesday.
But Redknapp is more than confident his side will stay up and he insists they have not had their morale dented by Sunday's Carling Cup final defeat to Manchester United.
"They weren't low even though we lost, we talked off knowing we had played well," he told Sky Sports News.
"Unfortunately we are stuck in a battle at the bottom, we have 12 games left and I think four wins would see us safe.
"The weekend results, opened it all up again it closed it up again - Middlesbrough's great result over Liverpool pulls them back into the pack, but we are playing well at the moment - so are confident.
"We can play against anyone, we have got the players here."
Downing dangerRedknapp admits they will have to keep a close eye on Stewart Downing, who he failed to sign from Boro in January.
"He is a good player and that is why I was interested in him," Redknapp said.
"He played wide left on Saturday against Liverpool. They played Martin Skrtel at right-back, where he had never played before. He got a chasing."
