Coventry City head into their final match of 2011 in optimistic mood after the Boxing Day victory over Bristol City, only the 7th league victory notched up by the Sky Blues in the calendar year.
Safety still seems more of a Mission Impossible than a Great Escape but Andy Thorn and his players clearly retain great faith in each other's abilities.
Two games in three days will test the squad to the full once again but, if games are to be given priority then a home clash with a patched-up Brighton side looks much more winnable than a Bank Holiday Monday trip to face West Ham United.
Gary Deegan is likely to start against the Seagulls having made an impact, not just with his goal but with a more intelligent all-round display, against Bristol City.
Carl Baker, Gary McSheffrey and David Bell will all need to support Lukas Jutkiewicz as well as they did on Monday as Thorn's options up front remain severely limited.
Jutkiewicz told the official club website ahead of the game: 'The win against Bristol was huge because you need to stop a run of defeats before it becomes a habit.
'We needed to remind ourselves that we can win games again and we did that and now there is a good feel about the place and we can go out and get some more wins so we can pile some pressure on the teams above us.
'You obviously need to look to win your home games if you're going to be successful and you need to follow up your wins with more positive results otherwise it means nothing.'
Midfielder Liam Bridcutt misses out for Brighton through suspension, skipper Gordon Greer telling The Argus: 'It's a massive miss for us.
'He has got a massive future in the game. He helps the defence out, works very hard in midfield and keeps the ball ticking over.
'But it's an opportunity for someone else to come in and do the business. It's up to someone else now.'
