AS Town wrestle with one of the worst disciplinary records in the country, it's a minor miracle they enter the New Year with no-one just a booking away from a ban.
Midfield signing Lee Fowler is suspended for the first two matches of 2004 against Doncaster and Cambridge after being sent-off against Oxford - his second red of the campaign.
With Nathan Clarke back on Saturday from his one-match ban, manager Peter Jackson knows any yellow cards against Doncaster will not bring immediate punishment.
Fowler and Jon Worthington are already on the way towards further suspensions with seven yellow cards to their name.
Anyone who gets 10 yellow cards before the second Sunday in April serves a two-match ban.
Jon Stead and Efe Sodje are also past the first ban with six bookings each to their name.
After that, however, Town have no-one on either five or four yellows, which is a relief as they bid to establish another long unbeaten run.
Six players, however, in Tony Carss, Nat Brown, Andy Booth, Steve Yates, Danny Schofield and Andy Holdsworth are all on three bookings apiece.
Rob Edwards and Ian Hughes have recorded two cautions each.
Fans are reminded the Town ticket office is closed for the day tomorrow but will be open from 9am to 5pm on Friday.
Any season-ticket holders wishing to use Friend for a Fiver vouchers at Saturday's match are advised to get them on Friday because the ticket office could be extremely busy before the Doncaster game.
Tickets for the trip to York remain on sale.
