MARK HUDSON seems certain to reprise his midfield anchor role for Town against Yeovil on Saturday.
The 24-year-old played just in front of the back four as Town secured a well-earned 3-1 win at Walsall with a rejigged team to cover for suspended Jon Worthington.
The skipper serves the second of his three-match ban at the Galpharm, when Hudson could be asked to direct operations again.
Manager Peter Jackson admits his 4-1-3-2 formation worked a treat.
And, with the available personnel likely to be the same, he could be tempted to stick with that set-up, allowing Chris Brandon a central attacking role.
"Mark was outstanding - probably his best display for the club - at Walsall," said Jackson.
"He is a very good player, one who reads the game well and passes superbly, and I feel he is a very underrated talent."
