Cardiff Blues take on Sale Sharks in the Heineken Cup with both teams needing a win to have a chance of progressing to the quarter- final stages.
Speaking ahead of the match David Young admitted there is added pressure on the Blues to achieve this season after such an coming so close to reaching final last year.
"Saturday's match is a must win game for us, as it is for the Sale Sharks. Being realistic, if we lose to Sale, we are pretty much out of both the top tier and the second-tier competitions in Europe. So we have got to make sure we go into the last game with an opportunity to get into the quarter final stage of either the Heineken or Amlin cups. That has got to be our focus."
"It we don't qualify for either competition it will be a huge blow for us after having had such a good run in Europe last season."
"The 2008/09 campaign was great, but some people said we over-achieved and perhaps we did. But we certainly should be doing better than we are this year. We have put ourselves under pressure and must get ourselves out of it," added Young.
"There was expectation after our achievements of last year but we must deal with that pressure. The great champions continue to produce season on season. As we have seen year-on-year, your fate is in your own hands once into the knockout stages. They are one-off games and they can always go either way."
Young also admits that the Sharks will also be a real threat following some good performances by the English team,
"Sale managed to pick up a bonus-point win away at Harlequins, which is never easy, so they are in a very strong position and they will certainly fancy playing against us here today."
"However, if we play as well as we can, I am confident we have nothing to fear. The frustrating thing for all of us this season is that we have not performed for the full 80 minutes. We've shown glimpses of what we can do, as against the Dragons over the Christmas period, but it's crucial that we play well for the whole match."
