London Broncos winger Kieran Dixon is hoping the battling qualities that have made his side competitive in their first season back in Super League can sustain them right to the end.
The Broncos have confounded the critics who tipped them for a swift return to the Championship by winning a third of their 27 games so far but they could finally lose their battle for survival if results go against them on Friday night.
The Londoners' penultimate fixture is against their nearest rivals in the table, Hull KR, who are one of three teams just two points in front of them but with a superior points difference, so defeat at KCOM Craven Park is unthinkable for Danny Ward's men.
"It's a massive game, must-win for us," said Dixon, a former Hull KR player. "Our season is riding on it. Super League is on the line if we don't bring back the result. There are two games left and KR on Friday is the biggest one so far. If we don't win that one, our season is done and we'll be out of the league, which nobody wants."
Despite the increased stakes, Dixon insists the Broncos will stick to the tried and trusted methods that have served the team so well so far.
"If you treat it any differently, it can be your downfall," he said. "It's another game of rugby. "We have a team that isn't full of big star names but we're a team where everybody works for each other and we're willing to put our bodies on the line. I think we've shocked everyone with that ability and our resilience to never give up on a game."
Dixon, who is in his second spell with the London club after scoring 21 tries in 27 appearances for Hull KR from 2015-16, admits his team will need to overcome a night of emotion at Craven Park, where a host of Rovers players will be making their final home appearances.
They include Super League's record tryscorer Danny McGuire, the former Leeds and England half-back who will hang up his boots at the end of the season and goes into Friday's game needing five more points to reach 1,000.
"He's a top-quality player, from the beginning to the end of his career, and he's going to want a big send-off to his last home game but our job is to spoil that," Dixon said. "Obviously you keep your eye on him but you can't take your eye off anybody in the team. They've got a good team and they can strike from anywhere."
Wakefield and Huddersfield, the other two clubs still not safe from relegation, face testing away games against Challenge Cup finalists Warrington and St Helens, who have an opportunity to remain unbeaten at home for the first time since 2002.
Elsewhere on a busy Friday night, the battle for semi-final places intensifies with form teams Wigan and Salford taking on Catalans Dragons and Leeds respectively.
Salford are enjoying their best-ever run in Super League with six straight wins but have not won at Headingley for more than 10 years.
