Cardiff got themselves back into contention to stay in the Premier League last weekend, with the first of the Easter games played on Saturday we've got to make sure we stay in with a chance.
We'll have to hope, as unlikely as it'll be, that Stoke decide to 'ease up' now that they've secured their own Premier League future but with a chance of finishing in a highest position in the Premier League era that'll be incentive enough for them.
OGS has a clean bill of health and that'll give us, and him, a boost.
We've got players that are going to miss out but none of these will be new injury or suspension issues to deal with.
He's not always produced the goods since he arrived on loan from Manchester United, but hasn't deserved any booing that has come him way, but after his appearance as a sub against Southampton Wilfried Zaha might have played himself in as a starter.
Maybe this will be the day that Kenwyne Jones really shines?
Charlie Adam broke his nose in four places last week but was able to play wearing a protective mask, so the Stoke midfielder should be able to take him place at the Cardiff City Stadium too.
Still coming back from a knee injury Oussama Assaidi might not be able to return in this game.
Peter Odemwingie will be looking to get one over us too, just as Jones will Stoke.
Mark Lawrenson, the BBC Sport football analyst, says: 'All of a sudden, after their win over Southampton last week, Cardiff have got renewed hope of staying up.
'It was an outstanding result for them against Saints but it was still a smash-and-grab victory. There is nothing wrong with that, and it will certainly give the Bluebirds some confidence, but it was not a sign that they are about to go on a run of wins.'
He still doesn't fancy us does he! I can understand why but he's not fancied us all season.
I'm not expecting us to win our battle against the drop but I'm definitely more hopeful than I was a week ago
If we can beat Stoke, as we have to really, I'll gain even more confidence and this could start turning to genuine belief we could achieve that miracle OGS said we needed and that mountain we had to climb could be conquered.
