MORECAMBE boss Jim Bentley says it is vital his side get a positive result from their trip to Yeovil this afternoon.
The Shrimps currently sit two points ahead of the Glovers in the League 2 table with a win potentially opening up that gap to five points with 11 games of the season to go.
Bentley said: "We are obviously going try to win the game but the big thing really is not to lose.
"We have beaten them this season and it is the opportunity for us to make it a double against one of our rivals. They haven't been in great form but won last week so that will have given them a shot in the arm like it did for us when we beat Port Vale and Oldham.
"We have to focus on ourselves though and concentrate on out good form away from home. Our last away defeat was at Tranmere on Boxing Day and we have won the last two so we are in decent form.
"We let ourselves down a bit against at Lincoln last week but we have had a free week to reflect on that and have prepared correctly and everyone is positive and raring to go.
"We need to be better than we were last Saturday but it is a good challenge for us and one we are looking forward to because we know the rewards are massive."
