He admitted: "It will be a nightmare if we don't win the game.
"Three points is the minimum we can come away with and it's vital we do that and everyone has to rise to the challenge in this match.
"I feel we have to win all four home games that we have left.
"It's very important for us because we have found it difficult to pick up points away and so we have to win at home.
"There are no excuses. We have players out but everyone has and that's not an excuse and others have come in and we have to deal with that."
