Stuart Watkiss insists tomorrow's battle for survival against Rushden & Diamonds is a game Kidderminster Harriers-dare not lose.
Victory over their nearest rivals will leave hosts Harriers within a point of safety, but a defeat would hand Kidderminster an uphill task the size of Everest to remain a Football League club.
It has been a frustrating week, with five players on the casualty list, but Aggborough manager Watkiss says his players fully understand now is the time they must stand up and be counted.
"Both teams are aware of the importance of the game - there is no need to ram home the message," said Watkiss. "What we need to do is to concentrate for a game of football and set out to get a win which is something we have done well in the last few weeks.
"We will go into the game with confidence. The performances have been good and the results have also been good.
"But equally we know that Rushden have been on a good run. They will come to us and think that if they get a win they will have one foot in the Football League for next year.
"We cannot worry about what they do. We've shown in the last few matches we are good enough to get a positive result."
Ian Foster is Harriers' biggest injury worry. The frontrunner - who scored five years ago when the Harriers beat Rushden in what was billed as a Conference title decider - has had an injection in a knee problem and is rated extremely doubtful.
Lee Jenkins (knee), Chris Beardsley (bruised foot), Mark Jackson (back) and John Danby (hand) have all been wrapped in cotton-wool this week. But they are expected to train today and should be fit.
Iyseden Christie and Reuben Hazell both came through their second full 90-minute outings in the reserves following lengthy lay-offs on Wednesday and will both be included in the 16-man squad.
