Walsall captain Dean Keates has set his side a target of four wins from their remaining eight games if they are to avoid relegation to League Two.
After throwing away a 2-0 lead in Saturday's home draw with Bradford City, the Saddlers are third from bottom, with four to go down, and have a string of crucial battles coming up against fellow strugglers Blackpool, Bourne-mouth and Gillingham.
And midfielder Keates knows his side will have to show more backbone than they did against Bradford if they are to escape from their current plight.
"We can't throw the towel in because there are lots of points still to play for and we have to keep on fighting," the Walsall-born player said.
"But we need four wins as quickly as possible and games are running out fast. We've missed out on a good chance of three points because when you're 2-0 up a few minutes before half-time at home you should go on and win the game.
"But it's another game we haven't won and the games have started to run out now. We know we need four more wins to make sure and we've got to look forward now and do whatever we can to get them."
Walsall should be able to field several key players for this weekend's trip to Blackpool after they missed out last Saturday.
Steve Claridge will be clear to make his debut while player-coach Simon Osborn and on-loan Derby man Pablo Mills will be free from suspension. Goalkeeper Andy Oakes should recover from his ankle injury, while Grant Smith is progressing from the groin problem which kept him out on Saturday. However, Kevin James (hamstirng) is already a major doubt.
