Connecting 100-Base-LX Single Mode-LC to SC

I need some help on connecting a Cisco 3945 Router to an Ethernet WAN Link. The service provider has provided a 100M Ethernet Single Mode Fiber handoff to the customer premises with SC Connector. The CPE configuration proposed for this setup is like this.

Cisco 3945

EHWIC-1GE-SFP-CU      (EHWIC 1 port dual mode SFP(100M/1G) or GE(10M/100M/1G)

GLC-FE-100LX               100BASE-LX SFP  for FE port.

Since the SFP has LC Connector, i suppose i need to have an SC-LC Cable for connecting the Ethernet link. Do i need anything else, apart from above?

Kindly suggest.

Thanks for your time.
