Derek Adams says he has his sights set on the teams above, but admits his side must pick up a good number of wins between now and the end of the season.
The Shrimps sit in 21st spot in Sky Bet League One and Adams is hopeful the side can take advantage of some of the results that may swing in our favour.
He said: “I think at this point of the season, we obviously need three points, we have got to pick up a good number of wins between now and the end of the season to make us safe.
“There are two teams above us that we think we can catch, could we catch a third team above us in Lincoln City? It is a possibility.
“We can only do that by winning football matches, we have to look at ourselves but we are obviously helped by other results in the league, we are looking to win the game and hope that the teams above us lose to jump those places above them.”
Adams’ side travel to the University of Bolton Stadium on Tuesday night to take on Bolton Wanderers, and he says he is aware of the threats that the Trotters have in their ranks.
“What I have seen of them, they are a very, very good team," he continued.
"They pass the ball well, their rotation is excellent and the way that they push the wing-backs, I think one of them ended up as a centre-forward in the last game.
“That just shows the freedom they have got to go and play, they have done that very well and they are obviously high in confidence.
“They have got a really good squad and they are trying hard to push into those promotion places, they have been on an excellent run and we understand how difficult this game will be."
