Scotland stand-off Dan Parks insists he will ignore his critics and focus on beating Wales in their RBS 6 Nations encounter at Murrayfield on Sunday.
The Glasgow player has struggled to win over the fans in his 14 international matches since making his debut against Wales in last season's tournament.
The 26-year-old even came in for flak after the Scots' victory over Italy, their first victory in the RBS 6 Nations competition in two years but insists he is not feeling under any extra pressure.
"I'm aware of the criticism and I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion but as long as I have the support of Matt Williams and my team-mates I'm happy,'' he said.
"I'm out there trying to do my best and get results on the board for my country.
"There was so much relief when we beat the Italians and we'll be out there this week trying to do the same and spoil Wales' hopes of a Grand Slam.
"I think the fans were wanting an exciting game against Italy, they may have just preferred that we were running the ball rather than kicking.
"But I think the cheer at the end of the match said it all, we got the win and I think they were as happy as we were.
"I don't feel under any extra pressure. It's a massive competition and it doesn't matter who you play, every time you go out and play a test match there is an equal amount of pressure.''
Parks is hoping the win over Italy will be the catalyst for a change in Scotland's poor recent form.
He added: "Obviously before the Italy game there was a bit of hype about whether or not we were going get the wooden spoon again so we're hoping we have turned the corner.
"After the Irish defeat we had a bit of a chat and we spoke about not being so tense and nervous, and as it turned out we ground out a win against the Italians.
"We could have won the France game and be sitting with two wins out of three but as it turned out we didn't.
"But now that we've got one win, we want to win our last two games against Wales and England.''
