Cardiff City can now look forward unabated to a much awaited visit to Wembley for an unlikely FA Cup semi-final date with Barnsley.
The game is potentially the biggest since the Cup triumph back in 1927 - forever a famous year in Cardiff City's history. A fantastic chance to progress to the fianl of the celebrated competition.
The demand for tickets has been high sparking comparisons with the play-off final back in 2003 that saw The Bluebirds defeat QPR at the Millenium Stadium and win promotion to the Championship.
For that game, well about 5 seconds of it, Andy Campbell will long be remembered in Cardiff fan's hearts. A £1m signing by Lennie Lawrence, Andy Campbell was little short of a disaster after signing permanently for Cardiff. He lost his way completely and was often seen ambling aimlessley around pitches.
Campbell never succeeded in replacing Robert Earnshaw but he did score that crucial play-off final winner. Often criticised, regularly booed the hapless Campbell was not a welcome sight at the Millenium as he replaced Earnshaw in extra time. However, Gareth Whalley's dink over the top found space and Campbell advanced to loop a sublime shot over Chris Day and write his name into the CCFC history books.
Campbell now plies his trade in the football conference with Halifax Town but few Cardiff fans have forgotten the name or that grinning toothy face.
Now Cardiff City players have the chance to forever write their names into the hearts of Bluebirds fans. Will we have another Andy Campbell - who would it be....?
A Stephen McPhail scorcher from 30 yards? Tony Capaldi dancing down the left flank, beating two before cutting inside anther and launching a right foot piledriver into the corner? Perhaps Steve Thompson producing some Cristiano Ronaldo-esque stepovers before rounding the keeper?
I'll be happy with a win. Any which way or how.
