Kevan Broadhurst expects his Walsall team to avoid relegation from Coca-Cola League One but he warned that it will take a significant effort, particularly at Bescot Stadium, if it is to happen.
Walsall performed well but conceded a late equaliser to draw 1-1 away to Swansea at the Liberty Stadium two days ago.
Broadhurst was happy with the point - it was certainly a sign of how Walsall have improved in recent weeks - but the manager said that his side need to pick up at home if they are to avoid the drop.
Realistically, Walsall are too good for League Two but proving it is another matter.
"It's frustrating because the two best performances since I've been here have come away from home and it's your home form that will save you," Broadhurst said. "Of the last ten games six are at home against teams around us, so hopefully that will come.
"When you're on your travels, coming to Swansea with the firepower they've got as the leading scorers in the division you'd take a point. But then you look at the game in reflection of our performance and it's a different story.
"We didn't take enough of our chances, but the fact we created enough gives me confidence we can push away from the bottom of the table."
