Walsall manager Kevan Broadhurst has dismissed the suggestion that his side's slide to the bottom of League One could have a psychological impact on his players.
Walsall's loss at Doncaster on Easter Monday saw them drop to the foot of the division for the first time this season, and, with four to go down, made them strong favourites for relegation.
But even though they have won just one league match in 2006, Broadhurst maintains there is no more pressure than when they were hovering just outside the drop zone.
"It is so tight down there, I have not noticed any change in my players," he said. "Whether you are fourth, third, second or bottom, as we are, does not have any effect."
In fact, he believes with everyone writing his side off ahead of tomorrow's visit from promotion-chasing Huddersfield Town, the tension could be relieved.
"In some ways, there is less pressure," he said. "If you are bouncing between safety and relegation, there is pressure in that because if you do not win games, you feel as though you are doomed.
"In that respect at least, the pressure is off our players  they do not have that uncertainty of wondering if a point is enough. It isn't."
Which means the equation is simple. "What we need is points and even if we get three on Saturday, we are going to still be in the bottom four," Broad-hurst added.
Broadhurst expects centre-back Chris Westwood to be fit for tomorrow's match against fourth-placed visitors Huddersfield but said he doubted whether Kevin James would recover from his hamstring problem.
