Swansea City are now just 1 game away from a LDV Vans Trophy final at the Millenium Stadium as they face Colchester in tonight's Sourthern Section Final second leg.
With a 1 goal advantage and no away goals conceded, a draw would be enough to take us through and Jackett has told his side that he wants to win both games.
Adebayo Akinfenwa is aiming to make it 5 goals in 5 LDV games tonight as he hopes to play in his first Cup final of his career.
''To go and play there in front of something like 60,000 people would be big for every one of us, I've never played there before and I don't think I've ever played in a cup final before, so to get through tonight would be great.
''I've scored a few goals in the competition so hopefully that can continue right the way through. To go and pick up a trophy at the Millennium Stadium would be fantastic for us.''
Phil Parkinson, Colchester boss:
'I was pleased with the way we worked for each other at Swansea in the first-leg and it could have been very different if Chris's (Iwelumo) goal had stood.
'I felt that the linesman got it wrong and that decision could cost us a visit to Cardiff.'
Midfielder Kem Izzet is out suspended while striker Tony Thorpe is cup-tied and Richard Garcia hopes to pass a late fitness test on a knee injury.
Iwelumo is Colchester's highest scorer with 16 in all competitions. He had a goal dissallowed for offside in the first leg and our defence will have to keep him quiet. Other players to watch out for are Danns and Halford.
Tommy Williams and Rory Fallon are cup tied so that will mean Akinfenwa gets a starting place again as he hopes to score his 5th goal in his 5th LDV Vans Trophy game.
Keith Lowe isn't cup tied but he's believed to be on the bench again tonight, for some strange reason.
With Williams out, Ricketts is likely to replace him at left back which could be the only other change to the side that drew with Walsall on Sunday.
O'Leary is also back from suspension and he's available again for selection.
MacDonald and Bond have been included in the 17-man squad to travel to Layer Road.
He's scored 4 goals in this competition and he's aiming to score his 5th goal tonight, it'll also be his 3rd goal in a week after scoring in the first leg last week and a late equaliser against Walsall on Sunday.
Colchester's poor form has seen them go from top to 6th in League One.
They haven't scored in the last 4 games, the last time they scored was against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in their 3-1 FA Cup defeat.
