STANLEY boss John Coleman believes four wins and four draws out of their final 13 games will be enough to guarantee Stanley's League Two survival.
After three defeats in their last four matches, the manager has every confidence his side can up the pace for the run-in and make sure the Reds are a league club next season.
"We have got 13 games to go and we will have to win a good third of them and draw a good third of the games if we are going to be safe," he said.
This starts tomorrow (Sat) at home to Lincoln City - where he says his team are up for the battle.
"We have been plagued with inconsistencies this season and maybe a little bit of apathy crept in as a team as, after last season, we hadn't got used to having to scrap for things as it probably came quite easy last year.
"Now we have got to knuckle down and take heart from our performance at Darlington.
"We have got to look at our attacking game and get it right at home and, if we do, we have a good chance of winning."
Coleman has some decisions to make for tomorrow's clash against third place City after several players came through a 3-1 reserve win over Wrexham unscathed on Wednesday night.
Captain Peter Cavanagh and Danny Ventre played 90 minutes and reported no reaction to their long-term knee injuries.
Striker David Brown played the full game after being hindered by a slight back injury and hopes to be in the reckoning for tomorrow to increase his three goal tally.
The second string goal heroes were loan striker Stuart Fleetwood - who scored twice - and Andy Mangan to seal the win.
Meanwhile, Coleman confirmed that he has spoken to Stanley's former goalkeeping coach Andy Dibble who quit the club to join Coventry but has since left the Sky Blues following Iain Dowie's appointment as boss.
"Andy is still in talks with Coventry at the moment but he has been in contact and we will have to wait and see what happens there," said Coleman.
FINAL LEAGUE TWO GAMES: Lincoln (H); Rochdale (A); Bristol Rov (H); Swindon (A); Torquay (H); Hereford (H); Walsall (A); Peterborough (H); Hartlepool (A); Grimsby (H); Shrewsbury (A); Macclesfield (H); MK Dons (A).
STANLEY'S reserves are in action next Wednesday at Bury (Ko 7pm) in the Pontins Holiday League Division One West.
