PETER JACKSON will encourage Town to go for the jugular in tomorrow's derby showdown with Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough (3.00).
The Galpharm manager has hinted at possible changes to the starting line-up after drawing a blank against both Chesterfield and Hartlepool.
But whoever gets the nod against Chris Turner's Owls, Jackson is determined Town will reward a travelling contingent of more than 3,000 fans.
"We have got to be more decisive in front of goal, but the lads are full of confidence and are geared up to make the most of what will be a big occasion," said Jackson today.
"There could be a crowd of almost 30,000 at Hillsborough and we don't want to let down our travelling fans.
"In the two games against Wednesday and Leeds we'll have a travelling army of 8,000-plus behind us and we want to give them something to celebrate. Tomorrow we've got to get after Wednesday and give them nothing, especially early in the game. We can't afford to sit back. We have to defend well, harass in midfield and chase up front.
"We will have a right go at them and I've every confidence in my players we can go there and win."
Goalkeeper Ian Gray has resumed handling work but is still rated `an outside chance' to play.
Rob Edwards has recovered from a calf injury to take his place along with Andy Booth, who returns for the first time to a club where he spent five years and was once a £2.75m signing.
David Mirfin (pictured) plays against his childhood favourites.
Midfielder Lee Fowler is added to a squad in which Pawel Abbott is strongly pushing for a start.
Booth and Junior Mendes have so far had the nod but, when asked about changes, Jackson said: "Possibly."
He added: "I'm not frightened to make changes but I won't do it just for the sake of it."
