MIDFIELD battler Lee Fowler will orchestrate Town's bid for victory against Bournemouth at the Galpharm Stadium on Saturday (3.00).
The 21-year-old Welshman has been recalled to the starting line-up after impressing as a substitute in recent weeks.
Fowler will aim to inspire a first win since Boxing Day and get Town back on track for a renewed play-off challenge by beating a team hot in the top-six race.
While Fowler gears up for a first start since his ill-fated outing at Swindon seven weeks ago, when he was sent-off while helping Peter Jackson's side to a terrific victory, 17-year-old Tom Clarke was today training with the senior squad with a view to a probable call-up against Sean O'Driscoll's visitors.
Clarke, who signed his first pro contract last week, was watched by Jackson in yesterday's 1-0 defeat by Rochdale in the Pontin's Holidays League Cup.
Coincidentally, his chance may come because of an injury to brother Nathan, who is still under treatment for a groin injury while colleagues Tony Carss and Andy Holdsworth are having scans on potential hernia problems.
"Lee Fowler has been very patient this season, everybody knows that he has done well in recent games and he will definitely start against Bournemouth," said Jackson today.
"Swindon was his big chance and, if he hadn't got sent-off he might well have been in the team ever since, but he now has another chance to make his mark.
"Obviously Lee has to work on improving the disciplinary side of things, but I don't want to take the aggression out of his game.
"He and Boothy had a massive impact on the game at Barnsley, where Lee's distribution - the strongest part of his game - came to the fore, and he will give us creativity on Saturday."
Jackson is hoping Nat Brown (Achilles) will train tomorrow.
