Get set for a massive game as the top two, Huddersfield and Charlton, clash in League One on Monday night.
The Terriers still have ideas of being the top dogs in that division despite still being five points adrift of potential champions Charlton.
The fact that Huddersfield, who have broken Nottingham Forest's 42-game unbeaten record and have their sights set on Arsenal's Invincibles, are still trailing in their wake goes to emphasise the fantastic job Chrissy Powell has done at The Valley.
He has brought in 19 new faces to educate and gel, yet they are unbeaten at home and have picked up 25 out of a possible 30 on the road. It's fair to say the Addicks are red hot at the moment.
I must give a big pat on the back to the chairmen of both clubs for sticking with their two young, passionate and ambitious managers when many may have looked elsewhere.
Powell and Lee Clark share many similar attributes, but their behaviour in their respective technical areas couldn't be more different. The Charlton boss is the personification of calmness and cool, while Clark can usually be seen screaming, bawling and hopping around like a hobbit.
They are brilliant to watch - just like their teams - and are a credit to their profession.
The match is not merely a straightforward shoot-out between the division's leading strikers Jordan Rhodes and Bradley Wright-Phillips, as there are many other matchwinners on show.
Charlton are set to be without the influential Johnnie Jackson and Alan Lee is banned for Huddersfield, so loanee John "The Beast" Parkin is set to deputise.
Bonfire Night has been and gone but I still expect fireworks in this one!
Sit back with your feet up and enjoy!
