TOWN seem certain to shoot for Cardiff in front of their biggest crowd of the season.
In a massive boost for Peter Jackson and his squad, a 16,000-plus gate was guaranteed for tomorrow's clash with Lincoln at the McAlpine even before a single seat had been sold today.
It's a measure of the excitement ahead of the play-off semi-final second leg in which Town start with a 2-1 advantage and Jackson - who supervised today's training at the stadium - is more determined than ever to reach the final on May 31.
"We've had magnificent backing all season and our fans are clearly ready to play their part again," said Jackson today.
"Lincoln seem to think that if they get an early goal our fans will turn and get on the lads' backs, but I know that's not going to happen.
"We are all in this together and, just like my players, the fans will give it everything they've got.
"It's not going to be easy and Lincoln are tough away from home with 10 wins to their credit, but we are going to go after them with the intention of building on what we started at Sincil Bank.
"We know a clean sheet would take us through to the Millennium, which would be a fantastic achievement for everyone, but we are not going to sit back. We are at home with big backing, and we are determined and focused on making the most of that."
Fans are asked to buy their tickets either today or early tomorrow to avoid disappointment immediately before the game because there will NOT be a delayed kick-off.
The club sold 3,000 seats yesterday and expected to be busy again today.
Gates will open between 6.15pm and 6.30pm. Parking will be limited, but season passes still apply.
"People can telephone for tickets, but we are being inundated so we ask for patience as we try to deal with calls as quickly as possible," said secretary Ann Hough.
"All our ticket windows are manned, so if people can come down early to buy their tickets it might be better.
"The match itself will kick off on time so people need to be in their seats.
"It is also imperative that no-one invades the pitch at any stage during the evening. It is an offence and it's our policy to ban offenders. Our fans were great for the final home game, though, and we ask them to co-operate again."
