Players are in the tunnel and the nerves are jangling in the stands for Cardiff fans.
Nothing less than a win will suffice here given their inferior goal difference.
Moments away from getting underway at the Cardiff City Stadium and you have to expect the hosts to come flying out of the blocks.
Roy Hodgson to BT Sport: ‘It’s dangerous to say what your players are going to do before a game but there is no reason for me to doubt they will try and get a result.
‘It is very difficult these days given the importance of the Premier League not to give their best. I have been able to use the bench and make changes today. I am hoping between the 14 players I can use, we can put on a good performance.
‘They have everything to play for, they know it is a last chance and if they don’t win this one the game against Manchester United becomes totally unimportant for them.’
SIMON JONES: Crystal Palace are reviving their interest in Everton midfielder James McCarthy.
The Selhurst Park club have a long-standing interest in the Republic of Irelandinternational and are weighing up a fresh offer this summer as McCarthy has just one year left on contract.
McCarthy suffered a double leg fracture 15 months ago but has been fit since September. He had expressed a desire to go out on loan in January but Marco Silva put the blocks on a move as he wanted cover for Idrissa Gana Gueye and Andre Gomes.

In short, it is not looking great for Cardiff.
They are four points adrift of Brighton and need to ramp up the pressure on them with a win this evening.
By closing the gap to one point – and hoping Arsenal turn over Brighton on Sunday – the pressure would be on the Seagulls as they host title-chasing Manchester City on the final day.
Neil Warnock fears his Cardiff side could be relegated from the Premier League by Wilfried Zaha — the man he helped to save from his Manchester United misery.
Cardiff must win their final two games, at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday and at Old Trafford next weekend, to have a hope of beating Brighton in the fight to avoid the drop.
Brighton have a four-point advantage and a far superior goal difference ahead of their final games, away at Arsenal and at home to Manchester City.
