TOWN skipper Jonathan Worthington is keen to avenge one of his worst career moments in tomorrow's FA Cup-tie against Welling (1.00).
The 22-year-old midfield dynamo was sent-off the last time Town played non-League opposition in the first round, and they lost as well!
That was at Accrington Stanley two years ago when Worthington was given his marching orders for a supposed high challenge on wingman Rory Prendergast.
Town battled solidly with 10 men but were eventually undone by Andy Gouck's spectacular late effort to earn the Conference side victory.
Worthington, needless to say, is still seething about the injustice and wants no such dramas at the Galpharm.
"Let's just say I've still got a few bad memories of that day," said Worthington, who is back after his one-match ban against Swindon.
"Getting sent-off and losing to a non-League side is not very pleasant, but this is a chance to put it behind us on our own ground and that's what we have to do, get a good result."
Worthington is determined as he returns to the side with Town having slipped to third in the League I table and eager to end a run of three matches without a win.
"We know more about Welling now than we did when the draw was made," he smiled.
"The manager has spoken to a few people and had some reports through and we know they are going to be a big, physical side. They will present us with a tough test and it won't be easy.
"We certainly can't afford to take Welling lightly and we won't, because we want a bit of Cup success ourselves.
"In the last couple of years we've gone out at the first time of asking, so this time we want to get to the later rounds and have the chance to come up against some big opposition.
"That's what the fans want and it all helps to create extra interest alongside the League.
"For that to happen, we've got to do a professional job against Welling.
"Everyone expects us to win, but we are there to be shot at and we have to make sure we go about the job properly to get the result."
Worthington watched the 1-1 draw against Swindon from the stands.
"It was frustrating," he said. "I was itching to get out there because I hate missing games.
"The consolation is we are still well up there. Sometimes you have to dig in and take what you can get."
