MANAGER Peter Jackson is determined to show the nation Town's best football in the Sky TV match-up with Hartlepool.
Monday's clash at the Galpharm Stadium (7.45) will be Town's first satellite screening since the play-off final victory against Mansfield in Cardiff.
It also gives Town the chance to measure their progress against a team who were in the Second Division play-offs just a few months ago - and Jackson is eager not to disappoint.
"I don't think we've been at our best in either of the games so far, but Monday's match will be a good indication of exactly how far we've come," said Jackson today.
"It will be a strong test of our standards against a team who did well at this level last season and the intention will be to get the ball down and play.
"The lads have shown a fantastic attitude so far, and that's especially so among the lads who are not in the starting line-up at the moment.
"You can see from the performances of Chris Brandon and Pawel Abbott when they've come on how keen the squad is and, while people like Nathan Clarke and Lee Fowler have had to be content with places on the bench so far, they are working hard and showing tremendous spirit to battle."
Jackson will wait for news of Ian Gray's progress over the weekend before he decides whether to name five outfield substitutes against Neale Cooper's side.
"Lee Fowler isn't available anyway as he sets off tomorrow with the Wales Under 21 squad to play in Latvia," said Jackson, whose squad train tomorrow and Sunday.
"Just what I do on the bench will depend on the goalkeeping situation."
Gray played outfield yesterday but is due to do some handling tomorrow.
Town's Academy lost 3-0 last night to Shelbourne U21s. Brian King, Ger McCarthy and Alan McCabe scored.
