Owen Coyle insists his Bolton players should relish the opportunity to play in their do or die game against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.
The Trotters know they must record a win against Tony Pulis' side and hope that QPR lose at title-chasers Manchester City at the Ethiad Stadium to remain in the top flight for a12th successive season.
However, Coyle is aware that anything less than three points would see then drop into the second tier for the first time since 2001.
And the Scot wants his Wanderers side to remain focused and beat a Potters outfit that have not won any of their last five league games.
Coyle said: "For me it is not a game they should be worrying about, it is a game they should be bursting down the door to get out there and play.
"They should be saying, 'You can hang your hat on me, I'm a top player and I'll go out there and show it'. I think this is a chance to go and show what you have in your locker.
"It is a game that you should be kicking my office door down to play in, saying, 'Pick me gaffer, I'm desperate to play'.
"When I was a player these were the games that I wanted to play in."
