Brentford assistant David Weir is relishing the prospect of taking on Middlesbrough in the play-off semi finals.
The Bees host Boro on Friday night before making the trip up north a week later with a place in the richest game in football at stake.
While Aitor Karanka's charges, who have gone to Marbella for a training camp, will provide a stern test, Weir is confident his side can produce the goods.
He said: “It's a cup tie really. We need to approach it with confidence given what we've done all season.
“It's going to be tough as they've got some very good players. We're delighted to be involved in such an exciting game.”
The fallout from the announcement that manager Mark Warburton and Weir would leave the club in May threatened to derail the season but the management pair maintained a steady course to guide the Bees into the end of season showdown.
Weir added: “We've just been concentrating on the job. We can only affect what we can affect. We've concentrated on the next game and next run of games.
“We can only control results and help the lads and give them the opportunity to have a successful season.”

The play-offs do not use the away goals rule meaning a side at home is more likely to attack to try and claim an advantage ahead of the second leg.
But the Bees number two believes it is unimportant where the game is held, as long as you produce the goods on the day.

Weir “I think it's whatever you make of it. It doesn't matter whether you're at home or away, it's about how you perform. It's how you control it and affect it and we'll try and do that to the best of our abilities.
“I think it's great for the lads to be in the play-offs. They've deserved it. They've kept going all season. They've kept believing and doing the right things. They've got an opportunity of pushing on.”
