LITTLE and large duo Lee Fowler and Andy Booth are back in the fray tomorrow as Town go for the jugular against Northampton at the McAlpine (3.00).
Manager Peter Jackson reshuffles his line-up in a bid to notch a first clean sheet of the season and claim only a second victory in Division III.
Jackson, whose side have a bye in the first round of the LDV Vans Trophy, the draw for which is tomorrow, is keeping team plans under wraps as he bids to ruin the homecoming of last season's Player of the Year Martin Smith.
With Danny Schofield starting a three-match ban, Jackson brings back Fowler and Booth and also adds Reserve strikers Nat Brown and Steve Kenworthy to a 19-strong squad.
"A clean sheet is definitely top of the agenda tomorrow because it will give us the best chance of claiming all three points," said Jackson.
"The nine goals we've conceded in the League have mostly been from stupid mistakes and if we cut those out we will start to do a lot better.
"Having Lee back from international duty and Andy back from injury is a huge boost for us and they will both start in what is another very big game for us.
"Andy played a full part in training yesterday and has suffered no adverse reaction, and he is as keen as anyone to get cracking again after opening his goal account at Doncaster."
Jackson continues with Ian Gray and an unchanged defence as Town bid to improve on an opening record of six points from 18, but it's in midfield where he'll juggle personnel to cover from the absence of Schofield.
Teenager Andrew Holdsworth looks likely to make a first McAlpine start after his promotion at Gigg Lane and Jackson added: "We want to hit the ground running tomorrow and really take the game to Northampton.
"We want to be tight at the back because clean sheets are the way to reach play-offs and win championships - and I always fancy us to score goals.
"Our build-up has been good and positive and we want to carry that into the Northampton game.
"It's important tomorrow that the fans get right behind us, even if it's frustrating at times. They've been brilliant at the McAlpine this season and we need them behind us again, because we can't afford sections getting on certain players' backs. Let's just out-shout the visitors."
On Kenworthy's selection, Jackson added: "Young Steve has been doing well in the Reserves, he has worked hard at his game and he can score goals, so he is another one coming through."
