Leicester City fans should travel to Nottingham Forest in hope because anything can happen on the final day of the season, says former City striker Alan Young.
City must beat Forest at the City Ground and hope Bolton fail to beat Blackpool at the Reebok Stadium to snatch a Championship play-off spot.
Crystal Palace's draw at Millwall on Tuesday means there is just one spot left for City to claim.
While the odds are stacked against them, Young doesn't write off a shock outcome.
City haven't won a league game at the City Ground for 41 years and Bolton are currently on a good run of form.
It means there are long odds on Nigel Pearson's men progressing into the play-offs, but it is not impossible.
And Young believes the officials could have a major say in City's ultimate destiny on Saturday.
"My glass is still half full and anything can happen at this stage of the season," said Young, who releases his autobiography, entitled Youngy, later this month.
"They have to go to the City Ground ready for one of the biggest battles of their life.
"There are going to be nerves but as Jock (Wallace) said to us 'it's good to be nervous, but nervous excitement'. That would get you through the game.
"I don't go with stats. I know we haven't won there for a long time but Forest hadn't won in Millwall for a million years and they went and won there last week.
"It is a game of football that lasts 90 minutes between two teams of 11 and with three guys in black, who will dictate how that game will go.
"There are all kinds of things that can happen. There could be a dodgy offside, a penalty, a bad tackle, someone sent off, someone hits the bar and it could go in or bounce out. The margins will be so fine.
"There are many scenarios and you just hope some of them are going to work for yourself.
"City need things to happen elsewhere, but they can happen.
"Can you imagine what will happen if the news filters through that Bolton are losing to Blackpool? The place will go mad.
"They still have to beat Forest and they have to focus on that and take it from there."
The former City striker's book, Youngy, doesn't just focus on the good times of his playing career, including his successful spell with the club.
Young also offers valuable insight and moments of perception and understanding of some of the darkest days of his life.
Youngy is written in conjunction with Simon Kimber, assistant editor of the Fox Fanzine, and is released on Tuesday.
