PETER JACKSON will field a full-strength team as Town bid to end a run of three matches without a win against Welling United in the FA Cup.
Skipper Jon Worthington is back after suspension for Sunday's 1pm tie and Jackson has no plans to tackle the Conference South visitors with an LDV-style line-up.
Jackson is aiming for a sound victory just 24 hours before welcoming injured trio Martin McIntosh, Adnan Ahmed and Lee Fowler back to full training at Storthes Hall.
While that's highly encouraging news as Town bid to cement their League I promotion challenge, striker John McAliskey is facing a visit to the specialist with a suspected hernia problem following his return from a loan spell at Torquay.
"We will be going in with a full-strength side on Sunday," confirmed Jackson today.
"This is not the LDV Vans Trophy, it's the FA Cup and we want to make sure we have a really positive weekend.
"We are obviously firm favourites to go through and, if we play as we should, then we will go through. That would be the ideal way for Martin McIntosh, Adnan Ahmed and Lee Fowler to return.
"They have all been making solid progress and, providing all goes well, they should rejoin the full squad on Monday which will be a terrific boost."
The trio will have to wait for a run-out in the Reserves, however, as Wednesday's Galpharm Pontin's fixture against Oldham Athletic has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 18 (2.00).
Next Tuesday (7.00), the Juniors are at home to Burscough in the FA Youth Cup first round.
Junior players Alex Smithies and Daniel Broadbent are in the England Under 16 squad to play Northern Ireland at Chester tomorrow night.
Town have just one additional worry for the clash with Welling as Chris Brandon went over on his troublesome ankle again.
