THE Vauxhall Motors survival bid takes them to free-falling Hucknall Town tomorrow with manager Carl Macauley urging his men to treat their 10 remaining fixtures as 'cup finals'.
The Motormen are 19th in the standings, just two points above Leigh RMI and Hednesford United, who occupy the two drop spots.
Although Vauxhall are very much involved in the relegation fight, their recent form indicates Macauley's men have the means to drag themselves away from danger.
On Tuesday night, they drew 1-1 at the side directly below them, Worksop Town, which followed Saturday's 1-0 home victory over Lancaster City.
Those results stretched their unbeaten league run to four games, and have dragged teams as high up as Alfreton Town into the dog fight.
Little wonder then boss Macauley described the atmosphere in the Motors camp as 'buzzing' this week. But the Rivacre Park chief knows there is still plenty of work to be done before his team are safe.
Macauley said: 'The remaining fixtures are all like cup finals, but we believe they are matches we are capable of winning.
'We are all confident we can stay in this division. We had a great win at Hyde last week and I just said to the lads to do the same again and to be fair to them they've done just that.'
Vauxhall left it late to snatch a point at fellow strugglers Worksop on Tuesday.
Trailing with 10 minutes to go, they were handed a
lifeline when the home goalkeeper brought down Mike Garrity in the box.
Captain Steve McNulty held his nerve to slot home the resulting spot-kick to earn the visitors a point and it might have even better had Karl O'Donnell not wasted chances either side of Worksop's opener.
But Vauxhall got their just rewards on Saturday, as Tom Field's first-half strike gave them a 1-0 success over mid-table Lancaster.
What a fine goal it was too, as O'Donnell cut the ball back for Thomas Rooney, who teed-up impressive midfielder Field to place the ball home.
Motors had further chances to add to their tally, but front-runners O'Donnell and Rooney could not convert the opportunities that came their way.
However, that did not dampen boss Macauley's mood after the game. He said: 'We created a number of chances and should have been further ahead but after half-time they threw on a big lad up front and we had to weather the storm, which was very pleasing.'
Macauley added a new name to his squad this week in the shape of striker Lee Furlong.
The 26-year-old has been playing for Runcorn, and has also appeared for Burscough and South-port, where he played alongside Macauley and under the leadership of Chester City boss Mark Wright.
He will be pushing for a starting place tomorrow against a Hucknall outfit who have gone seven games without a win.
