PETER JACKSON wants a `carnival atmosphere' for tomorrow's final home game against Swindon as Town bid to stay on course for a club record.
As Town broke the 1,000 barrier in season-ticket sales just five days into the cut-price offer, Jackson is determined to sign off at the Galpharm with a win to reward a bumper crowd.
A stadium lap of honour and presentation of the Reserves' championship trophy are planned for after the match, and Jackson hopes to mark them with three more points on the board and a play-off place still to play for in the closing League I fixture at Wrexham.
Two victories to conclude the campaign would equal the club record set 85 years ago of eight wins and a draw in the final nine matches, and Jackson is eager not to miss out.
"It will be an exciting afternoon as we monitor what is happening with the other scores, but the most important thing is that we win our match," said Jackson, who rates Tom Clarke (shin) only 50-50 for the contest.
"It would be fantastic if we could go into the Wrexham game with a play-off spot still to play for and that's the incentive we've got for tomorrow.
"I'm sure all our fans will be right behind the lads tomorrow and creating a real carnival atmosphere for the last home game.
"And we would love to thank them with a good performance, a win to keep our run going and then the lap of honour, although it will only take place if people stay in the stands.
"If people start pouring onto the pitch then there will be no lap of honour and no presentation, which would be a shame."
Jackson confirmed defender Nathan Clarke (gashed lip) is fit to return as skipper while Tom will be given until tomorrow morning, if necessary, to prove his fitness.
John McCombe, who has just signed a new one-year deal, is on standby to continue against a Swindon side including Steve Jenkins and former Town loan man Jerel Ifil.
"Season-ticket sales are great and now we want to finish a good week on a high," added Jackson.
