HARWOOD boss Dave Sharples wants the Robins to bring some festive cheer to the Showground this weekend.
High-flying St Helens will be aiming to clip the wings of their hosts to stay perched on top of the North West Counties First Division.
But Sharples insists his side can get things bobbing along again after a disappointing start to the season.
He said: "We have had some upheavals since the start of the season and this will be my sixth game in charge.
"It is a completely different experience from being assistant boss and a tough challenge, but one I am relishing.
"We had four points deducted but it was a genuine clerical error. Unfortunately there are teams that play lads who aren't signed on, but ours was a genuine mistake. We have appealed but it was thrown out, so there is not a lot we can do about it now.
"But there is no point getting our heads down. We have to believe in ourselves and put a good run together over Christmas.
"We have a few games in hand, so we need to catch up to Formby.
Looking ahead to Saturday's clash, he said: "I have had a few reports about St Helens and they are a strong well-organised side. I tipped them to be up there next May.
"But we always seem to do well against the better teams. We got a draw against Bacup earlier this year so there is no reason we can't give them a game. It is going to be tough, but we seem to raise our game against these sorts of teams."
Sharples added he is hoping to speak to the new Clitheroe boss about extending Graham Price's stay at Harwood following the shock resignation of Lee Sculpher.
He said: "He played for us against Colne and did a good job for us. He is only 19 but has spent time with Bristol City so he is a quality player."
Kick-off for Saturday's match is 3pm.
