PETER JACKSON overcame the pain of Town's Carling Cup exit today and looked positively towards the holiday double header against Peterborough and Doncaster.
Despite watching his side draw a blank for the fourth successive match at Elland Road, where they went down to a single goal from Danny Pugh, Jackson explained:
"I was particularly pleased with our performance and it's very encouraging looking towards Saturday's home game with Peterborough
"We created good chances and out of four penalty claims you would usually expect to get one, but the referee did nothing for us.
"The lads could do with a bit of luck, obviously, because nothing is dropping for us in the box, but I think we can take heart from our display.
"No-one likes to be knocked out of a Cup, but we didn't feel like we deserved to lose the game and you can be sure we will pick ourselves up and be ready to get back on track against Peterborough."
Striker Andy Booth (left leg) was today declared fit while Rob Edwards was having treatment for a hamstring niggle.
"I was pleased with Efe Sodje last night because he was back to his best," added Jackson. "He's been disappointing and I told him so before the game, but he responded by marking Michael Ricketts out of it almost completely."
