LEE FOWLER returns to the Town starting line-up tomorrow knowing only his best form will earn a regular place in the side.

The 20-year-old midfield player has missed the last two matches because of suspension, giving Rob Edwards and substitute Chris Holland the chance to impress.

"This is a big opportunity for Lee Fowler," said manager Peter Jackson today.

"His form before the suspension was disappointing and I've explained to him that if Rob Edwards had been fit, Lee wouldn't have been playing against Boston.

"I've been very pleased with the midfield recently and Chris Holland is also knocking very strongly on the door after doing well, so it is up to Lee to stamp his authority."

Fowler returns with seven bookings against his name - he will be banned again if he reaches 10 before the second Sunday in April - but Jackson added:

"I don't want to take anything away from Lee's game because he is a tremendous competitor. All I want him to do is avoid the really stupid bookings."

Andy Holdsworth is one yellow card away from a ban (on four bookings) while Jon Worthington is two away (on eight) as Boston bid to improve the worst away scoring record in the division - just seven in 13 matches.

Jon Newby (knee) returns to Town's squad for the first time since September with Andy Booth (groin) missing out, while Jackson may put keeper Ian Gray on the bench despite him needing a splint to support his damaged left hand in training.

Jackson continues to have talks with trialist keeper Paul Evans about the rest of the season at the McAlpine.
