TOWN could have five key players back to bolster their play-off chances against high-riding Doncaster at the McAlpine on Saturday.
Definitely available after suspension is classy defender Nathan Clarke, who missed yesterday's 1-0 win against Bury to serve a one-match ban for his dismissal at Macclesfield.
Also on the comeback trail are influential Tony Carss (knee), defenders David Mirfin (hamstring) and Ian Hughes (knee) and striker Danny Schofield, who twisted a knee in the warm-up at Darlington.
It means a few more options at Jackson's disposal for the visit of Dave Penney's side, who were beaten 3-1 by a Jason Price hat trick in front of 23,006 at Hull yesterday.
"You have always got to be happy when you win and especially when the injury list is as long as ours," said Jackson, whose side were watched by scouts from Wigan, Nottingham Forest and Burnley.
"We have had a lot of key players missing and, all being well, we could have a few more to select from at the weekend."
Jackson also praised the work of Jon Worthington, who made his first start against Bury in over a month after hernia surgery and suspension.
"Considering he hasn't really trained for three weeks and he has played just about two full matches in three days, I don't think I could have asked more of Jon Worthington," he said.
"He ran his socks off yesterday, did a great job for us up at Darlington and showed the spirit we have got in this club."
Jackson played 4-4-2 with Nat Brown and Anthony Lloyd as wingers yesterday and explained: "I didn't really have any other choice when central defenders like Nathan Clarke, Ian Hughes, Paul Scott and David Mirfin were ruled out.
"I know we didn't play well, but we can work on the performance and look for the improvement we know we need against Doncaster."
