Striker DJ Campbell has issued a rallying call as beleaguered Blackpool battle against the drop.
Ian Holloway's side dropped into the Premier League's relegation zone for the first time on Saturday after the 3-1 loss to Wigan - their fifth defeat in six league games.
Despite this poor run of form, Campbell still believes the club have a great chance of survival with five games to go.
And he has called on all those connected to the club to stick together at this crucial stage of the season.
The striker told the club's official website: "The good thing is that we have still got five games to go. Hopefully we can buck our ideas up because we need to.
"We are disappointed with the position we are in because we were eighth at one point last year, so we now need to stand up and be counted.
"The players, the manager, the staff and the fans need to stick together and be counted as one.
"From day one, our position was to stay in this league. Our togetherness and ethic to work for each other has been second to none, and we need to keep that going to achieve what we were achieving at the start of the season.
"Our season starts now. Fingers crossed, we can turn around our fortunes.
"We are only a point away from getting out of the relegation zone and there's still a lot to play for.
"We knew it wouldn't always be rosy and we would have settled for 17th place at the start of the season if it meant staying in this league."
