JOHNNIE Jackson is set to chalk up his 100th league appearance for Colchester United tomorrow afternoon.

The former Tottenham 26-year-old was due to celebrate his century of league games at Northampton Town on Tuesday evening, but that fixture was called off due to a heavy snowfall.

Jackson made eight appearances during an earlier loan period at Layer Road in 2003, before signing a permanent deal during the summer of 2007.

He had boosted his tally to 86 league games before the start of this season, and has been ever-present during the U's first 13 games of the new League One campaign.

In fact, Jackson played every minute of every game last term, a record he has maintained this season. He is set to continue at left-back against Southend.
