TOWN wideman Danny Schofield is in line for a return to the starting side at home to Northampton on Saturday with boss Peter Jackson stressing: "It's vital that we re-establish our supply lines."
Jackson's men haven't won in seven matches in all competitions and have scored only twice in that spell, slumping to 17th in League I.
That has left strikers Luke Beckett (six goals so far this season) and Andy Booth (four) under the microscope.
But Jackson - whose leading marksman is midfielder Gary Taylor-Fletcher, with nine - says the shortage of goals is not just down to the frontmen.
"It's vital that we improve the quality and quantity of balls into the box, and it's something we've been doing a lot of work on in training," he said.
"It's an area the whole side plays a part in, because wide players, be they wingers or full-backs, cannot thrive unless they themselves receive the right passes."
Schofield, struggling to reproduce the form which earned him a new two-year contract midway through last season, has been on the bench for the last three matches.
But the player (left) is set to step in for left-sided midfielder Chris Brandon who, like centre-back Martin McIntosh, will serve a one-match ban against Northampton.
"It's fair to say Danny hasn't been firing on full throttle of late," added Jackson.
"But we all know what a talented player he is, and if selected, he will have a great chance to claim a regular slot by putting on a show."
With two men suspended, Jon Worthington rated 50-50 because of a groin strain, striker Pawel Abbott not yet ready to return after a double hernia operation and the Clarke brothers, Nathan and Tom, both sidelined, Jackson could find his options limited as he plots a first home win in six attempts.
