Crawley Town head coach Dermot Drummy says his side must correct their mistakes and improve in time to travel to Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.
Reds will want to bounce back after a miserable defeat at the hands of Morecambe last weekend.
Their opponents lie six places above Crawley, just one point off the play-offs.
However after a great start to the season, Wycombe have hit a lull, having lost their last four successive league games.
Drummy said: “It’s going to be tough. They are going to come at us and it will be a tough game.”
He said he would like his players to approach the game in same way they did last week against Colchester United, when they won 3-2 away from home against a team above them in the table.
Drummy said: “If we go to Colchester and perform, it’s about how we perform.
“So we’ve got to look at our display, correct it, own up and make sure we improve with a better performance at Wycombe.”
At the time of going to press Reds lie 16th, ten points above the relegation zone on 39 points.
Drummy believes a target of 50 points will be needed to stay up.
He said: “We have got to get that target, our status is very important to us.
“There are other clubs in the dogfight but in my opinion we haven’t picked up enough points in the last three or four matches.”
Following this weekend Reds have a great opportunity to get back on track with three successive home games, starting with Exeter City on Tuesday, February 28.
