PETER JACKSON wants 11 months of hard Town graft to pay off in spectacular style with a victory party for the McAlpine's biggest crowd of the season tonight (7.45).
The manager is delighted more than 20,000 will pack in for the eagerly-awaited all-ticket semi-final second leg against Lincoln City in which Town hold a 2-1 lead.
And Jackson is likely to name an unchanged line-up as the club chase a first ever appearance at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium in the Third Division promotion final on Bank Holiday Monday, May 31.
"We have been building towards something like this for the whole season really and, if we show the same effort, desire and determination which has put us in such a great position, I'm sure we'll be okay," said Jackson, whose entire match squad practised penalties yesterday.
"There are going to be certain stages where we come under pressure, it's inevitable, but it's important our fans raise the roof when the players come out, stick with me and the players throughout and be passionate about what we want to achieve. The lads need a really big atmosphere and, working together, we can see this job through."
Fans have been asked to arrive early tonight (gates open at 6.30pm) and should retain their ticket stubs for priority booking should Town get to the final, where they will have an allocation of over 31,000 seats.
Sales for Cardiff would start at 8am on Saturday for season-ticket holders and Blue and White Foundation members. The McAlpine would also be open on Sunday for those groups plus ticket-holders from tonight. General sales would start on Monday.
Jackson is keen to ensure these plans become a reality, but he is taking nothing for granted against a side Keith Alexander has honed to battle.
"It's important we start well because the first goal tonight is going to be abolutely crucial," said Jackson.
"If we get it, then it's going to take some hauling back, but if Lincoln equalise it will be back in the melting pot.
"We couldn't have a bigger incentive, of course, than to keep a clean sheet and to do that we'll have to defend correctly for the whole tie.
"There is no way we are going to sit back an invite any pressure, though. We have to get among them, get hold of the ball and pass and move like we know we can here at the McAlpine."
Jackson's defensive effort will hinge on an unchanged unit and the contribution of Andy Booth, who has to tackle the towering Ben Futcher.
"We need people to die for the cause and Boothy has been fantastic for us," said Jackson.
"He has enjoyed his football all through the season and he'll be ready to put in another big performance for us.
"The amount of headers Boothy won at Lincoln was incredible and, having won a play-off with the club in 1995, I know how keen he is to add another this season."
Club captain Rob Edwards, another man back for a second spell, will anchor midfield.
"Rob had been waiting for his chance before Saturday and he didn't let anyone down," he said. "It was a typical Rob performance, 110%, but I was pleased with the whole team and if they show the same commitment again, we will win, I'm convinced of that."
Town have again stressed the kick-off will not be delayed tonight and fans have been reminded not to invade the pitch at any stage.
Anyone caught over the pitch-side barriers faces a ban.
Parking at the stadium will be limited because of the success of sales for hospitality packages. Season parking passes are still valid.
