ANDY BOOTH today paid tribute to his younger colleagues and backed them to book a place at Cardiff.
The 100-goal striker is confident Town will reward a bumper crowd tonight and that `Jacko's Jewels' will shine.
"The young lads have been superb this season and you forget how young they are," said Booth.
"David Mirfin could be 28 or 29 instead of 19 because he plays with such confidence and ease.
"Then you've got Andy Holdsworth and Anthony Lloyd who have come in and deservedly held their places, while Jon Worthington has been different class this time in midfield."
Booth was one of those taking penalties in training yesterday and smiled at the thought of tonight's tie going to a shoot-out - like the semi-final at Brentford in 1995.
"We did some work on them, but we are all praying it doesn't come down to that because it's a lottery," he said.
"If we play like we can, then it won't come down to penalties and, hopefully, we can produce the goods for our big crowd.
"Support has been magnificent all season but so has the way this squad has worked and it would mean a lot to everyone to go through to the final and then to win promotion."
Lincoln midfielder Ben Sedgemore is hoping to match the play-off victory of his brother Jake, who helped Shrewsbury emerge from the Conference.
And there's a split in the McCombe family, with John on Town's books and brother Jamie in the Lincoln squad.
