TOWN will not appeal against Danny Schofield's red card as manager Peter Jackson plans for a fresh assault in Division III.
Schofield was dismissed for the second time in his career in the closing seconds of the 1-1 Bank Holiday draw against Doncaster Rovers at Belle Vue which left Town sixth from bottom of the League.
He will serve a three-match ban against Northampton, Rochdale and Swansea next month, when Town may still be without groin injury victim Steve Yates, who was forced off in the second half yesterday.
Jackson may well look to promote Paul Scott against Bristol Rovers at the McAlpine on Saturday, although he is due to run the rule over Nathan Clarke, Nat Brown and Rob Edwards (for a half) when the Reserves play Bradford at home tomorrow (2.00).
"I have looked at Danny's challenge on the video about 15 times and, while I still don't think it was worse than a yellow card, we are not going to appeal," said Jackson, whose side led through Andy Booth (seven minutes) before Leo Fortune-West levelled on 47.
"The referee thought it was dangerous but I certainly didn't. It was impetuous at worst, but I thought Doncaster got away with a lot worse while we got pulled up for everything."
On injuries, Jackson added: "Yates had a similar problem to this last year and was out for five weeks, so it's a blow.
"He has no chance for this weekend, but Paul Scott stepped in tremendously well yesterday, we've got Brown and Clarke on the way back and other options in the centre-back positions."
Town sold 2,274 tickets for yesterday, when the attendance was 7,367, and Jackson added: "It was a fantastic turnout and we need as many as possible to come down to the McAlpine on Saturday and help us gain our first League win.
"I never felt threatened by Doncaster in the first half and if they hadn't scored so early in the second we might have won.
"It was a fluke goal. I missed it because I was still in the dressing rooms, but I've watched the video and Jamie Paterson puts his shirt over his head because his cross was really a shot!
"We had to stand up and be counted after that, so it was very much a point gained rather than two dropped, and we've now got to focus on getting our first win down at the McAlpine this Saturday in another tough test.
"We are the biggest club in this division and teams are going to raise their game.
"It's important that we do the same and produce more going forward, because we can play a lot better than we are doing.
"We just need the fans to be a little more patient because it's early days, we are just settling in and there's better to come.
"If we are going to do anything, though, we need to be winning our home games."
