TOWN fan Matthew Smith is going completely potty over Monday's clash with Mansfield.
Doctors cast the teenager's leg in blue and white after Matthew, 14, dislocated his knee for the second time in six months during a kick-about with friends.
At Christmas, he had another cast protecting leg in festive colours to brighten a dreary winter as he was forced to miss training with Kirkburton Juniors. The Shelley High School pupil will be travelling down to Monday's match in the Millennium stadium, Cardiff, with his dad David, 44.
Matthew's mum Bev, also 44, and elder sister Rebecca, 16, will be watching at home.
Matthew is an avid Town fan and goes to matches with friends or his father.
His mother said of the pot: "It's something to cheer him up because he's a bit down about the injury."
Matthew first hurt his leg in a training session with Kirkburton at the end of last year.
Once that pot came off he was enjoying kick-about with friends - and again collapsed when his knee gave out.
"He hasn't played football properly since he did it the first time.
"He's very sad he's missing his football and he'll have to rest his leg so much," explained Bev.
"The second time he did it he was in the goal and just threw the ball out and he just went down on his knee.
"The ligaments and muscles have all got badly stretched."
Once the pot comes off Matthew faces an intensive programme of physiotherapy to get back to 100 per cent fitness.
