Cove Rangers boss John Sheran asked his players for more of the same against Cowdenbeath after they reached the League Two play-off final.
The Aberdeen team were beaten 2-1 at Ainslie Park by Spartans.
But the Highland League champions’ 4-0 win in the first leg meant they saw off the Lowland winners 5-2 on aggregate.
The Blue Brazil will visit Harlaw Park on Saturday in the first leg of the final, with the return at Central Park seven days later.
It’s a quick turnaround for Cove – Cowdenbeath have all week to prepare for the game – but Sheran hopes they can hit the heights they did against Spartans.
He said: “We’ve been stacked up with games for the last six or seven weeks, so we’re used to that. “We’ve got 14 fit boys, so we don’t have an awful lot of choice.
“And I don’t think we’ll have anybody else for Saturday.
“So we’ll go with the same guys again.
“But if they turn in the performance level they have for the last two games they’ll do themselves proud.”
Sheran was pleased with Cove’s display last night, despite their defeat.
Paul McManus opened the scoring but Jamie Dishington and Blair Atkinson netted to give Spartans the win.
The Edinburgh side’s goalie, Blair Carswell, made a number of fine saves to keep out the Aberdeen outfit.
Sheran added: “It’s job done.
“It was all about getting through. “When we started on Saturday it was about getting through and we’ve done that. “Spartans did really well.
“They made us work really hard for it.
“Later in the game I thought the fact we didn’t make many changes started to tell, but credit goes to Spartans.
“Both teams tried to get the ball down and pass it. “I thought their keeper had some fantastic saves, but we’re just really pleased to be through.
“On Saturday we played really well and tonight, I thought we played well again.
“On a different night a couple more of our chances go in and we are ahead.
“It was a great finish from Paul McManus for our goal.
“Credit to Spartans for fighting hard and coming back.”
