WREXHAM captain Darren Ferguson would sacrifice a first-ever cup final appearance if it ensured the club's League One status this season.
The midfielder maintained that a victory in Saturday's league clash between the two sides was more important than defending the Dragons' two-goal lead in tonight's LDV Vans Trophy northern final second leg.
"I've never played at the Millennium Stadium and it would be absolutely great to get there because clubs at this level don't get that many opportunities to do so," he said yesterday.
"But to be honest I just want to get tomorrow's game out of the way so that we can concentrate on our main objective, which is to avoid relegation this season.
"If it came down to a choice, I would swap going to the Millennium Stadium for staying up."
But the 33-year old Scot, who won a Football League championship medal with his first club, Manchester United, believes the Racecourse club can go on to lift the LDV Vans Trophy in Cardiff next month and retain their League One status.
"We don't deserve what we've had to put up with over the past few months, but what had all the makings of a bad season could yet turn out to be a great one," he added.
"Tomorrow's game should take care of itself because we are in a healthy situation going into it, even though the tie should have been over when we led 5-1 at Boundary Park.
"It will be interesting to see how Oldham go about it because the longer it stays goalless, the more they will have to come out. That will suit us.
"I've never played in a final before because my dad (Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson) left me out of the squad when United went to Wembley, so it would be great to go through.
"And we'd have to fancy ourselves in Cardiff, regardless of who wins the other area final.
"Very few of the Wrexham lads, myself included, will ever have a better chance of playing in the Millennium Stadium, so that's the carrot for us against Oldham.
"But I'm sure they would all agree with me that staying up is the most important goal for us now."
* BRIAN LITTLE has backed Tranmere to recover from the painful blow of losing Saturday's League One clash with automatic promotion rivals Hull City.
On Saturday, Rovers go to Hartlepool United - the scene of Wrexham's incredible weekend victory - and manager Little said: "We just need to work to get the disappointment out of our system and start smiling again. We have got to get on with the job."
