BRIDGWATER Town are entering a last-chance saloon as they prepare to travel to second-bottom Wantage Town on Saturday (ko 3pm).
The Robins, who have lost their last 11 matches on the spin, are 18 points adrift of safety but just four behind this weekend's opponents, and Town boss Phil Hucker has impressed upon his side the importance of the clash.
"It's a huge game, there's no two ways about it," he said.
"They got a point at sixth-placed Mangotsfield last weekend, so we know they are a decent side.
"With that in mind, we need to approach it with the same mindset as last weekend.
"Realistically we know we need three points on Saturday."
Town put up a decent fight in last Saturday's 2-0 home defeat to AFC Totton, with young duo Liam Kingston and Jack Goodall singled out for praise.
With the Robins looking as if they may drop down a division next year it is uncertain how many players will stick around, but Hucker confirmed that has not been discussed yet.
"We have not spoken about it - we will cross that bridge when we come to it," he said.
