Crystal Palace's on-loan defender Peter Ramage is keen to end his spell with the club on a high, as they stand just 180 minutes away from the Carling Cup final.
Tuesday's semi-final first-leg with Cardiff at Selhurst Park could be the 28-year-old's penultimate game for the Eagles, with his loan spell set to expire on Sunday.
An extension looks unlikely with parent club Queens Park Rangers currently searching for a new manager following the departure of Neil Warnock on Sunday.
However, former Newcastle stopper Ramage is keen to finish with a flourish following an enjoyable stint at the Championship outfit.
"Let's be honest, Cardiff was probably the team that we wanted to face in the next round considering the other two clubs in the draw, but it is still going to be a really tough tie," Ramage told Sky Sports, with Manchester City and Liverpool contesting the other semi-final.
"They beat us and beat us well in Cardiff earlier this season, so we know that it is going to be a really hard game, but it is a cup tie and anything can happen, as we proved at Old Trafford.
"It is probably the perfect draw for us, but it will still be an unbelievably hard tie and we aren't going to start booking our tickets for Wembley just yet.
"Obviously, I might not be here for the second leg and final should we get there, but I've really enjoyed my time here and I'd love to help give them something to take to Cardiff with them."
