Reading manager Brian McDermott has backed his side to overcome a partisan crowd in Cardiff on Tuesday night and book a place in the npower Championship play-off final.
The Royals were held to a goalless draw at the Madejski Stadium in Friday's tense first leg and most observers have Cardiff as favourites to progress as a result.
But McDermott, who made over 50 appearances for the Bluebirds in the late 1980s, believes his side have what it takes to edge the tie and head to Wembley, saying: "There's a great atmosphere there, they love their team, love their players and it's a crowd that get behind their team like we do but I don't regard it as hostility."
He added: "It will be a great atmosphere.
"When I was a player there we were playing in front of five or six thousand, but times have changed and it's one of the best grounds in the division now.
"But we have won at Anfield as a group so we have no fear."
