Cambridge United have a chance to sneak into the play-off positions should they beat Braintree Town at Abbey Stadium on Monday.
The U's will be determined to get back onto the winning trail as their last Blue Square Bet Premier victory came on 5 November at Mansfield Town.
Since then, Jez George's men have drawn four and lost one, slumping to defeat in their latest outing at Darlington.
After the average run of results, United are seventh in the standings on 40 points, only two behind the last play-off spot.
Left-winger Harrison Dunk is a doubt for the U's as he is trying to shake off an ankle injury, while Conal Platt is still out on loan at Lincoln City and may have played his last game for United as his contract talks hang in the balance.
"I probably won't be great company on Christmas Day because Boxing Day is my focus," George told Cambridge News.
"We've got to come out with all guns firing and really make sure we do ourselves justice in front of, hopefully, a decent crowd.
"We can make the supporters' Christmas even better by getting the right result on Boxing Day. We want to send the fans away happy."
Meanwhile, Braintree Town won their last league clash 2-1 at AFC Telford and are lying 13th in the standings.
The win against the Bucks was, however, their first since October, as they have lost four of their last six games.
Iron manager Alan Devonshire will have no new injury concerns ahead of the game but will be without Jai Reason due to suspension.
