The diminutive Canada international scored in the 3-0 FA Cup win at Peterborough last weekend, which was a rare start in only a 14th appearance of the season.
Canaries boss Chris Hughton has opted for a big target man for most of the campaign, with captain Grant Holt leading the attack supported by Wes Hoolahan.
Holt has resumed full training ahead of this weekend's game at Carrow Road after a hamstring problem, but Steve Morison (thigh) is still sidelined.
While on-loan Tottenham forward Harry Kane could be given the nod against the struggling Magpies, Jackson, 25, is ready to take his chance should it come along.
"It is tough, everyone knows that, everyone wants to get a game, but it is the way we play and the strengths we have in the squad, you just have to wait for your chance," said Jackson.
"Team-wise it is not good to have two of your main strikers injured, but it is an opportunity and it is one I will be looking to take.
"From the start of the season, the competition has been tough and you have to go out there every day and keep showing the manager (what you can do), to make sure you are fit and sharp. At the start of the season, the manager said to me I was unfortunate not to keep my run in the team going.
"When you are sitting there watching, you understand that, if it is what is working and getting the team results, then fair enough, I have to take a back seat.
"It is a rollercoaster and when you are not playing it is tough, but it is part of the job, you have to keep your levels up in training and your mind right for when you do get the chance."
