PETER JACKSON sends Andy Booth into battle this season backing him to take another big step up Town's all-time goalscoring ladder.
The 30-year-old kicks off against Stockport at Edgeley Park in just 48 hours as one of only five men to have netted 100 goals for the club.
Booth needs only nine more to eclipse Les Massie's 108 in all matches and close in on Billy Smith (128), Jimmy Glazzard (154) and George Brown (159).
"I can't praise Boothy highly enough and he's going to be a big player for us again this season in both attack and defence," said Jackson, who was plotting set pieces today for an anticipated tough battle with Sammy McIlroy's side.
"At the back, we always have him marking the opposition's main header at set plays and, up front, he is well capable of getting his share of goals.
"Everyone has questioned Boothy's fitness and I've always said to him that if he wants a day off and feels he's doing too much, he should let me know.
"He has never asked to miss training in 12 months, he is feeling better than he has in years and he'll be determined to do well again because he is Huddersfield through and through."
Jackson - who lifted the play-off trophy alongside Booth at Cardiff less than 10 weeks ago - added:
"Andy has got two more years on his contract and he could carry on after that with his current form and fitness, so who knows where he might finish in the club's scoring list?
"He's been excellent since I came back here, he is enjoying every minute of playing football again and with Junior Mendes alongside him, I'm sure he'll score a lot more goals.
"Like all of us, Boothy is feeling a buzz now the season is so close. We can't wait."
