Morecambe boss Jim Bentley insists his side "don't want to play for a draw" when they face Barnet in a crunch bottom-of-the-table clash on Saturday.
The Shrimps will be safe if they can avoid defeat at the Globe Arena, however Bentley says his only focus is on claiming three points.
"It's massive for the football club and the community," Bentley explained on the club's official website. "Who knows what's around the corner with the way the sport is?
"Until it's mathematically safe you never know. We don't want to play for a draw - it's a huge game but we've put a bit of pressure on Grimsby."
Morecambe, without a win in their last eight matches, missed the chance to guarantee their safety after they were held at home to Cambridge United on Tuesday night.
Martin Allen's Barnet side are five points behind the Shrimps in the relegation zone and must win their final two matches to have any chance of survival.
Allen, in his fifth managerial spell at the Hive, provided Bees supporters with a short message on Barnet's website, which read: "Good Morning to all our supporters!
"Our squad is all fit, well and ready. We have no new injury concerns."
