MANAGER Peter Jackson today gave his personal backing to a trio of unlucky Town stars - Tony Carss, Jon Worthington and Jon Newby.
Firstly, Jackson confirmed Carss will continue as Town's penalty taker despite his miss in Saturday's 3-1 defeat by Lincoln.
Secondly, he is to ask referee Alan Butler to reconsider Worthington's booking, which means the midfielder is set for suspension at Scunthorpe a week on Saturday after getting five yellows.
And, thirdly, Jackson has reassured Newby that he still has a big part to play at Town despite being dropped from the bench at Sincil Bank.
"If we get a penalty at Yeovil then Tony Carss will be the first to step forward and take it, have no fears about that," said Jackson.
"The fact he scores a wonder goal one week and has a vital penalty saved the next is just football. It was just one of those days.
"I thought Jon Worthington was really unlucky to get booked and even the fourth official said it wasn't a booking, so I'm going to ask the referee to have another look at it.
"I don't know if it will do any good, but there just doesn't seem to be such a thing as a 50-50 with the keeper any more. It's just a booking.
"The only reason Jon Newby was left out was because I felt we needed as much height and physical presence on the bench as possible, so decided to go for Mirfin and Brown instead."
