YOUNG striker John McAliskey has been added to an otherwise unchanged Town squad for tonight's clash with Lincoln.
While the opposition are without midfielder Peter Gain, who was injured on Saturday in a collision with Town's Jon Worthington, Jackson seems certain to name an unchanged starting line-up.
That would mean a first McAlpine start ever in Town colours for Iffy Onuora, who left the club shortly before their move from Leeds Road.
"John McAliskey has trained without a problem for the last two days following the bruised toe he suffered at Cheltenham and he's in the squad," said manager Peter Jackson today.
"Steve Yates is also fine after having stitches above his left eye, but Tony Carss has no chance because of the thigh injury which kept him out at Sincil Bank.
"It's great to report that Nathan Clarke is also making excellent progress in his recovery from the ankle operation he had, and we hope to get him into full training next week."
Both Lincoln and Town have been brushing up on their penalty taking, with Jackson putting all his squad through their paces in a full session at the McAlpine yesterday.
Should the aggregate scores be level at 90 minutes there is extra-time tonight. If they are still level, it's a penalty shoot-out.
