TOWN can take second spot with a two-goal win tonight and coach Terry Yorath has told the players: "Go for it!"
Still fourth following yesterday's results, Town can take a big step towards promotion against faltering Chesterfield (7.45) in skipper Jon Worthington's last match before he serves a three-game ban.
Chris Brandon could return to the starting line-up for Town, who are still without strikers Andy Booth and Pawel Abbott plus keeper Phil Senior, but Yorath insists personnel doesn't matter, just their attitude.
"This is a big game and we know the onus is on us to take the three points," said Yorath today. "It's a very close promotion race with teams beating each other and people slipping up and we're like everyone else, we are doing it the hard way.
"The players realise how vital it is for us to stay right in there with a win tonight.
"Saturday down at Bournemouth was the quietest I've known them for a long time and we came away with a good point, so now we have to press on and be positive.
"We can take some good things out of Saturday, our home record is extremely good and we just have to keep it going."
There is no parking at Holsets tonight because of the fairground.
Town are expecting a crowd of over 14,000 as Chesterfield anticipate bringing around 1,000 fans despite a run of just one win in 12.
Town Reserves are at the Galpharm tomorrow against Walsall (7.00).
