West Bromwich Albion midfielder Kieran Richardson is targeting next Tuesday night's daunting trip to Stamford Bridge as a means of killing two birds with one stone.
Victory over Premiership leaders Chelsea, unlikely though it might seem at first glance, would give Albion an enormous boost in their bid to beat the drop.
But it would also be a big help to the on-loan Richardson's main paymasters, Manchester United, in their quest to stay in touch with Chelsea in the race for the title.
And the confident 20-yearold Londoner, who signed in the January transfer window to stay with Albion for the rest of the season, is convinced that Albion are capable of doing it.
Just like the other occupants of the Premiership's bottom three, Southampton and Norwich City, Albion are yet to win away from home this season.
But Richardson insists that if the Baggies can maintain the effort and form they managed in Sunday's unbelievably one-sided local derby win over Birmingham City, then they should not be ruled out of the frame in seven days' time.
"The Chelsea game is so big for us," said Richardson. "They are flying at the moment, and hard to stop, but I personally feel we can go there and get the win.
"We deserve a win away from home. And I personally feel, if we can keep playing like this, that we can beat anyone.
"I don't fear anyone. And, if we do win, it will do United a favour as well. It would be fantastic to help Albion get a win and help United as well.
"The belief has always been there but I think the win against Birmingham has now got everyone at the club really believing we can get out of it."
Richardson was so thrilled at getting the three points against Blues that he tossed his shirt into the Halfords Lane stand as a celebratory gesture when he was substituted just before the end. "It was just a nice little gesture of thanks," he said, "as it was such a massive win."
"And it was so important after Crystal Palace got the draw with Manchester United and Southampton got the win as well.
"We definitely needed the three points and we played particularly well."
In an ideal world, Richardson would have crowned his performance with a goal. But, after breaking his Albion duck in fortuitous style on his full debut at Norwich last month, he has been out of luck since.
In both the two home league games that have followed, Richardson has hit the woodwork - and he admits he could do with another lucky break.
"This time I hit the post," he said. "And against Southampton I hit the bar. I've come close a few times. But I like taking shots as I feel I've got the ability to score goals from long range. Hopefully against Chelsea one might go in."
Instead, he was happy for the men who got the goals - Neil Clement and Kevin Campbell - and particularly the two players whose inspirational efforts did most to create them, Zoltan Gera and Geoff Horsfield.
"The thing about Zoltan is that he never gives up," said Richardson. "He won the corner for the first goal when it looked a lost cause. He got the goal for us basically.
"He's got a drive about him and he's a great player, who does it in training every day so it is nothing new to us.
"Geoff Horsfield terrorised them. Obviously he'd played for Birmingham so he wanted to play well against them. Kevin Campbell was also good but 'The Horse' was phenomenal."
