Liam Foster hit a hat-trick as the city club edged past Wimbledon 5-3 last Sunday to narrow the gap on the fifth-placed south Londoners and all but ensure their survival this season, even if they lose all four remaining games.
Canterbury lie six points behind fourth-placed Surbiton with four games remaining – including one between the two rivals – while Wimbledon are two points back in fifth.
Farrer said: “Everybody knew that we were going to have to win pretty much every game after Christmas (to make the play-offs) and nothing has changed.
“We’re playing well and the confidence is there. There is a good atmosphere, everyone is relaxed – there is pretty much nothing for us to lose.
“We could maybe still be dragged into relegation trouble if we lost every game and other teams won every game but I don’t think anyone expects that to happen now.”
Beeston overcame the city club 3-2 in October and are four points clear atop the table, but Farrer said: “They have had a few injury problems and their form is not as good as it perhaps was before Christmas.
“Of course it will still be tough, but we need to win on Sunday (12.45pm start). I think we need maximum points from the last four games to have any chance of fourth.”
