London Broncos coach Joe Grima accepts his team need "a miracle" to avoid relegation but he remains hopeful and has Hull FC firmly in his sights.
The Broncos have looked doomed all season and they are firmly rooted in the First Utility Super League relegation zone, without a point after 14 successive defeats.
They are bottom and eight points adrift of safety with just 13 games remaining, starting with Hull FC's visit to The Hive on Saturday and another key fixture against Wakefield in a fortnight.
Grima is a natural optimist, and has brought a refreshing vibrancy since taking over from Tony Rea earlier this month, but even he accepts the season is now reaching crunch time.
The Australian said: "I am a practising Christian and miracles do happen. Let's be honest, we need a miracle - but whatever happens, happens.
"We have just gone past halfway this season and our destiny is going to be governed by the next two games.
"Anyone that knows me would know I am a pretty energetic type of person. It takes a lot to get me down.
"I am a pretty motivated person and don't think anything can't be fixed. We have come a long way and made some good progress in the last four weeks."
