GRAHAM Barrow wants Chester City to be ruthless tomorrow and expose any cracks in Boston United's fragile confidence at York Street.
The Pilgrims are staring relegation from the Football League squarely in the face and have only nine fit senior professionals available for their meeting with the Blues.
City assistant boss Barrow said: 'Players under pressure find it difficult to perform and I think we've got to turn that into our favour.
'We've got to go out and be a little bit more relaxed and maybe just play a little bit more at times.
'It's going be tough at Boston, but we're in a position where we can go and enjoy it a little bit. They're the ones under pressure, not us.'
Wrexham fans don't usually find themselves cheering for fierce rivals Chester, but they will be tomorrow.
Three points for the Blues, coupled with a win for the relegation-haunted Dragons over Torquay at the Race-course, would leave Boston firmly entrenched in the bottom two and facing an almost impossible mission to beat the drop.
For the sake of City's two lucrative derbies against Wrexham each season, Barrow would rather see Brian Carey's men remain in the Football League.
He said: 'The Wrexham thing's a strange one really. To say there would be much pleasure in them going down would not be the correct thing to say, because we'd miss playing them. The local derbies have been great so in a way we want them to stay up. Any player at Chester City would be rather playing Wrexham than not playing them.'
Injury-hit Boston have placed their entire youth team squad on standby for tomorrow's game, so City's selection worries are minor by comparison.
Phil Bolland is unlikely to play after being given compassionate leave this week to be with his ill mother in Spain.
Paul Linwood injured his neck in last Sunday's 0-0 draw with Shrewsbury, but has been making good progress in the past few days and could retain his place in City's back three.
If the former Tranmere man fails to recover, 18-year-old Shaun Kelly could come in for his full debut.
Midfielder Paul Rutherford, 19, looks set to continue his promising development in the first team and Barrow has been keeping a close eye on his prog ress.
Mark Wright's number two said: 'Rutherford was probably the best footballer on the pitch against Shrews-bury last week, for both sides.
'There were a number of times earlier in the season when I had to tell him that he wasn't travelling with the first team and you could see the disappointment on his face. But to see him involved now is a pleasure because he's a decent lad as well.'
