DETERMINED manager Peter Jackson today admitted he's got some "big decisions" to make on selection as Town chase four points for promotion.

PFA award winner Efe Sodje and midfielder Danny Schofield are suspended for the final two matches after helping almost 4,000 travelling fans celebrate Saturday's goalless draw at Hull.

Pawel Abbott is available again after suspension and Jon Newby is back from his loan at all-but relegated York, but Jackson must change a defence which has kept 16 clean sheets this season and find a new team captain as well.

"There are some big decisions to be made and I'm already studying those," said Jackson today.

"The one thing I know is that whoever comes in to the team will be ready to fight like the rest.

"To say we've got such a young side, they are standing up to the pressure superbly because they believe in their ability and they are giving 110%.

"My squad are exceptional people to work with, they battled hard for a vital point at Hull and it's now important that they rest and re-charge the batteries for another difficult match against Mansfield."

Jackson is monitoring David Mirfin (head) and Tony Carss (thigh).

"Mirfin's performance was unbelievable in such a hostile environment while carrying a nasty injury and he's going to be a top player," added Jackson.

"All the lads were just shattered, though, because of the heat and the pressure we had to withstand, but they came through with the help of our fans, who were brilliant throughout.

"I'm sure they will be out in force to back us again against Mansfield, when a win will do it for us if Torquay slip up, so we have to focus on getting those home points in the bag.

"That's why I called the squad into a huddle on the pitch at the KC Stadium. I wanted to tell them we are almost there and we just need to make one final effort to get us up.

"I'm confident they will respond because their total commitment is excellent."
