Blackpool striker DJ Campbell has called for one final push from the Seasiders to clinch Premier League safety.
Pool are still fighting to avoid the drop with one game to go, but will face a daunting task when they conclude their campaign against title winners Manchester United at Old Trafford this weekend.
Sir Alex Ferguson's men, who secured the title by picking up a point at Blackburn on Saturday, have won 17 and drawn one of their 18 home games this season.
But Campbell refuses to be intimidated by the prospect of having to beat the 19-time champions.
He said in The Sun: "We're still in with a shout. All we have to do now is go to United and get a win.
"We've been punching above our weight all season, so why not once more?
"It's an understatement to say it won't be easy.
"But if people had said before the season started that we'd reach the last game needing a win to stay up we would have snatched their hand off."
Campbell, who notched a brace during Pool's dramatic 4-3 win over Bolton on Saturday, says the Seasiders are due revenge on the Red Devils after they sealed their relegation from the top flight back in 1971.
He added: "The last time we were in the top flight 40 years ago, it was United who sent us down in the last game of the season - we owe them one for that."
Pool star Charlie Adam, who has been heavily linked with a move away from Bloomfield Road in the summer, notched the winner against the Trotters on Saturday.
And 29-year-old Campbell admits that goal could have been his goodbye to the fans, adding: "It looked a bit like he was saying farewell.
"Good luck to the lad. If it is his last home game it was a great way to sign off, with the winning goal."
