Preston boss Phil Brown believes Saturday`s home clash with relegation rivals Sheffield United is shaping up as his side`s biggest game of the season.
North End lie one point above the bottom-placed Blades but seven points adrift of safety with only five matches remaining.
Brown is targeting maximum points from his side`s last five matches and believes that may be enough to safeguard against the drop.
He said: "The Sheffield United game is massive for us, a real six-pointer - it is the game of the season as far as I'm concerned.
"I'm putting pressure on the lads saying that because I know they can respond to it and I'm putting pressure on the supporters because I'd love to see a full house at Deepdale.
"We can still reach 51 points and that is the target for my players."
