Blackburn boss Steve Kean has called on the club's fans to roar the team on in Monday night's crunch clash with Wigan at Ewood Park.
With Rovers currently 19th in the Barclays Premier League, three points adrift of safety with two games to go, the match against the Latics looks a must-win for Kean's men, who are at Chelsea on the final day of the season.
Indeed, depending on other results this weekend, it might be the case that anything other than a victory over Wigan would see Blackburn relegated.
With the stakes so high, Kean feels the atmosphere generated by the crowd could be crucial in helping Rovers prosper.
Frequently at home matches this term sections of the club's supporters, frustrated at their team's plight, have vented their anger at the manager and Blackburn's owners Venky's, but Kean is adamant there needs to be unity on Monday night, with hostilities being directed solely towards the visiting side.
"The hostile atmosphere that can be created for away fans and teams coming to Ewood is important," Kean said.
"We want everybody being behind what we are trying to do.
"It is a massive game, probably one of the biggest games we have had at Ewood for years and our last home game.
"Every team likes to finish off with a home victory in their last game. We just want everyone to get behind the team."
Wigan go into the contest in fine form, having won five of their last seven games to rise to 16th, three points clear of the drop zone they previously inhabited.
The sequence has seen them claim some major scalps in the shape of Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Newcastle, while they were also beaten 2-1 at Chelsea thanks to two goals it seemed should have been disallowed for offside.
Their boss Roberto Martinez has been named the Premier League's manager of the month for April and Kean has been impressed by the Spaniard's side.
But with Monday's game being on Blackburn's turf, the Scot is demanding his team "get after" the Latics.
"I take my hat off to Roberto and his team," Kean said.
"I think they have been fantastic and possibly even should have picked up some more points.
"They have been playing very good football - I went to watch the game when they played Newcastle (a 4-0 for Wigan at the DW Stadium) and they were excellent and didn't let Newcastle get a foothold in the game.
"They have been playing lots of good stuff, but we now have to get after them, they are coming to our home ground.
"We have to make sure we are positive, create chances and get goals."
Wide man Martin Olsson could be back in Blackburn's starting XI for the game.
Olsson has been on the bench for Rovers' last three matches due to a niggling groin complaint but Kean says the problem has settled down.
Bradley Orr (Achilles) will be assessed ahead of kick-off, while fellow defender Grant Hanley (knee) remains sidelined.
Kean has confirmed striker David Goodwillie, who was given a community service order earlier this week for assaulting a man in Glasgow, will be part of the squad.
