Truro City manager Lee Hodges says his team will 'go down fighting' as they try and avoid relegation from Blue Square Bet South.
City are 17 points from safety at the bottom of the table after going into administration last year, suffering a 10-point penalty and transfer embargo.
New owners have taken over the club and Hodges is positive about the future.
"We've got to get a bit of pride now and can start getting some points on the board," he told BBC Cornwall.
"If we do go down, we will go down fighting. If we stay up, it'll be an unbelievable achievement.
"If we do go down, it's a case of getting a team together that can compete in the next league, to try and get up again into this league."
Earlier this week, former Truro boss Steve Massey returned as head of football development, and Hodges says the club is also starting to improve off the field after the takeover by Pete Masters and Philip Perryman.
"The structure is getting put in place which is great, and that's what you want at the club.
"You go away to all these other clubs and see their setups and you look at ours and it's never been like that.
"But now Pete's getting it all in place and trying to get load of people on board to do jobs and make the club run more efficiently."
He added: "This is the start of hopefully a very long and upcoming Truro City that hasn't been there for a few years."
