PHIL JEVONS is set to make his comeback after injury when Town reserves close their Pontin’s League Central Division campaign at home to Leicester tonight (7.00).
The eight-goal frontman hasn’t figured in the first team since damaging a calf during the 2-1 League I defeat at Hartlepool on March 11.
Leicester’s first team could be visiting the Galpharm in League I next season.
They are one of five clubs fighting it out to avoid the drop from the Championship alongside already-doomed duo Scunthorpe and Colchester.
Southampton currently occupy the dreaded third-bottom berth, but a win at title-chasing West Brom tonight would lift them.
Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry and Blackpool are the other worried clubs.
Leicester are in the mire after they lost 3-1 to Wednesday on Saturday, when 31,892, the Championship’s highest crowd of the campaign, watched.
On paper, they have the toughest final game of the five involved in the fight at the foot – away to promotion-chasing Stoke on Sunday.
Blackpool host Watford, Coventry go to Charlton, Wednesday are at home to Norwich and Southampton to Sheffield United.
Coming up from League II are Hereford, whose squad includes ex-Town defender John McCombe.
They made sure they will accompany MK Dons and Peterborough by winning 3-0 at Brentford.
MK clinched the title with a 2-1 victory at Bradford.
Rochdale, Stockport, Darlington and Wycombe will scrap it out in the play-offs.
Mansfield look set to accompany Wrexham into the Blue Square Premier (Conference) after losing 1-0 at home to Rotherham, although Chester aren’t out of danger.
Ex-Town man Chris Senior’s late goal wasn’t enough to save Altrincham and condemn Halifax to relegation to the Blue Square North.
With the Shaymen losing 2-1 at home to Stevenage, victory at Weymouth would have kept Alty up, but they could only draw 2-2.
