UPBEAT team chief Peter Jackson is delighted to have Efe Sodje and Danny Schofield back at the heart of his play-off planning.
Suspended as Town's automatic promotion hopes crumbled against Mansfield and Cheltenham, the duo will be back to spearhead a fresh challenge against Lincoln at a sell-out Sincil Bank on Saturday (3.00).
Town had striker John McAliskey (bruised toe) back in training today - Tony Carss (thigh) is still rated only 50-50 for the weekend - and squad preparations will be concluded on the McAlpine pitch tomorrow before Town leave for an overnight stay ahead of the first-leg tie.
"It's a boost to have Efe and Danny back and we are all looking forward to the match," said Jackson today.
"Everyone knows what a key player Sodje is for the team, he's the captain and defensive leader and he'll be bristling to do well.
"I don't think many people realise how well Danny Schofield has been playing over the last six weeks either. He's been outstanding in probably his best spell for the club and it's great to have him available as well."
Town's 2,300-ticket allocation for Saturday is still not sold. General sale starts at 9am tomorrow.
