PETER JACKSON will send Town into battle against unbeaten League I leaders Luton on Saturday demanding a clean sheet.
The Galpharm manager was angered by the goals conceded in Town's 2-1 defeat by Torquay at Plainmoor which cost them the chance of a return to the play-off placings.
Now, Jackson wants a mean streak at Kenilworth Road to get Town back on track before the Galpharm double against Tranmere and MK Dons.
"We've kept only three clean sheets in the League this season and that's just not good enough," said Jackson, who was hoping skipper Efe Sodje (pictured) would recover from a bout of illness to play in today's Reserve game at home to Darlington.
"We conceded two sloppy goals at Torquay and I've reminded the lads that if we start keeping clean sheets, we will be up there challenging at the end of the season.
"If someone scores a goal against you because of good football or hits a screamer in the top corner then you hold up your hands.
"But we've given away too many easy goals this season and there's no better place for sloppy defending to stop than Luton.
"They are the form side in the Coca-Cola divisions, unbeaten, scoring goals and seemingly running away with the title, but we will be going there in a positive frame of mind, believing in our ability to win."
Rob Edwards and Andy Booth were reported fit to start today's Reserve game.
