Tyrone Mears believes Burnley still have a 'great chance' of staying in the Premier League and is relishing the local derby with Blackburn Rovers.
Burnley are currently on a run of just one win in 20 league games and are three points adrift of safety after Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Wigan Athletic.
The Clarets' next match is a home date with Lancashire rivals Blackburn on Sunday and Mears does not believe his team-mates require any motivation for the fixture.
And, with seven games of the season remaining, the full-back is also confident that Brian Laws can steer Burnley to survival.
"It doesn't get much bigger than that game for this club," said Mears ahead of Blackburn's weekend visit.
"It's massive in terms of us trying to stay in the league. No motivation will be needed.
"The lads were really down in the dressing room after Wigan, but the other results have gone for us.
"We've seven games to go and still have a great chance."
