Nancy are in an unenviable position heading to the Stade Chaban Delmas tomorrow but, according to midfielder Romain Grange, they should not be worried.
With three games of the Ligue 1 season remaining, Les Chardons are one point above the drop zone and are vulnerable to being caught by all three sides below them.
A trip to mid-table Bordeaux tomorrow represents a chance to possibly pull clear of the pack, though, and Grange is trying to put a positive slant on the situation.
Grange has been one of the club's star performers this season and says his approach is to treat the game for what it is.
He told his club's official website: ``I actually don't feel the pressure. I am highly motivated because playing in Ligue 1 was my childhood dream.
``As a result, this is not pressure. I try to play like I did when I was younger with my friends. At the end of the day, this is just a game.''
Grange may well be relaxed ahead of games, but does feel some pressure in the aftermath.
``I struggle to get to sleep until three or four in the morning,'' he added, but was quick to say his team-mates should not start to crack as the run-in intensifies.
``This is the best job in the world and we must keep it fun,'' he said.
``We will do everything we can but if we are relegated, we look to come back to Ligue 1 at the first attempt. That too is a worthwhile goal.''
Bordeaux are approaching the end of a season which has seen them draw too many games.
Their loss record of eight is bettered only by champions-elect Paris St Germain and St Etienne. They have dropped 32 points in draws, though.
``We need to finish well and try and get as many points as we can,'' coach Francis Gillot said.
