Force a WIFI client onto a specific access point

Hello - I have a client machine that I want to force onto a newer access point, even though it is a little farther away.  Can I specify the mac address of the access point to connect to somehow?

You can block that mac-address from the other access points but allow it on the access point you want it to connect to, without using software.
