TERRY FISHER has spoken of his delight at Town's push for an automatic promotion place.
The former travel company chief, who eventually withdrew from Ken Davy's Town takeover team last summer, has been keeping tabs on events in Division III from his home in Spain.
Mr Fisher - club chairman when Town won promotion from Division II in 1995 - was head of a consortium looking to take over at troubled Leeds United last month, but the plans were shelved, leaving the way open for a rival white-rose group, headed by insolvency practitioner Gerald Krasner, who yesterday completed their £22m rescue.
"I'm absolutely delighted for Peter Jackson; thrilled," said Mr Fisher, who was central to the manager's appointment.
"He had a couple of tough months where things weren't going to plan and I know that Peter is very self-critical.
"The way he has turned things around, though, has been superb and the team are playing some terrific football with great spirit."
Mr Fisher, busy at home with new baby son Harry, born at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, confirmed he would like to get involved in football again.
"I miss the involvement and think I've got a lot to offer," he said. "We had great success in my first spell at Town and I also gained experience from the takeover proposals back in the summer."
