And he admits inter-national coach Craig Levein's decision to leave the Huddersfield hit man to play with the kids rather than take him with the senior side to American for an end-of-season friendly is a major boost.
Stark's young lions take on Bulgaria in a European Championship qualifier at the Lovech Stadium on May 31 and is pleased to have the striker – who has netted six goals in seven outings for the side – raring to go.
He said: "Jordan isn't in the senior squad. He's involved in the play-offs with Huddersfield, but he's available to us for the Bulgaria game.
"And I see Huddersfield have rested him for the last couple of games because it has been a long, long season for him and that will help as well.
"We have got that to deal with and there is a couple of boys involved in the Scottish Cup Final as well. They will come and maybe be deflated or ecstatic, but that's football. When you get a squad together, there is always an element of that.
"But because it's the end of the season, it's when the trophies are given out."
Stark has also decided to name Bolton winger Gregg Wylde in his squad even although he is unable to play competitive games for the struggling English Premier League club after agreeing to have his contract ripped up by Rangers after the club entered administration.
He said: "I don't have any qualms about taking Gregg, that's why he is in the squad there. He's not there just to have a look and then send him away, he's there to show us what sort of stage of fitness he's at.
Scotland's form on the road has been impressive and Stark hopes that continues. He explained: "International games are difficult to win at any level. It didn't surprise me that Austria and Bulgaria made life difficult for us at home. If I'm really honest, they are games we could have lost as well, so hopefully they will be valuable points.
"It's a big game, but when you look at it, every game's a big game because there's very little margin for error because if you lose a couple of games, you have to win the next six to have any chance. So we'll go into it aware that it's a big game, but that's just the way it is that they are put under that sort of pressure going into every competitive game."
