DO YOU think the lack of offers for our players in the transfer window means they are not as good as we think they are? Michael, Huddersfield
Jacko says: FOOTBALL is all about opinions.
I rate my top young players very highly and I think most of our supporters do as well.
From talking to managers of other teams, I know they also believe we've got a really good young squad.
If other clubs don't want to take a punt on any of them then that's out of our hands.
Personally, I'm surprised no-one has come in for any of them, bit I'm also delighted they are all still here.
I'm particularly pleased this week for Andy Holdsworth to have been selected in the Football League squad to play the Italian League.
It's a big honour for Andy, it shows our young players are catching the eye of the national set-up and it's a reward for all the hard work he has put in.
I stand by everything I've said about my squad.
It doesn't matter how many calls we get or how many calls we don't get in a transfer window, I believe we've got a really, really good bunch of young players and I won't stop giving them confidence by telling them so.
RONNIE MOORE reckons there is nothing between the teams in the top half of the table. Is it confidence that will give some teams the edge and is it confidence we've been lacking in our poor recent run? Simon, Birchencliffe
Jacko says: CONFIDENCE isn't what makes the difference - it's consistency.
I instill a lot of confidence in my players at all times, but it's consistency that you are after.
Look at Colchester.
They have lost only twice in about 20 matches and they are top of the League.
That's superb consistency - the sort which Luton showed last season when they ran away with the title.
DO YOU think Pawel Abbott and David Graham can fire us to promotion? Terry, Denby Dale
Jacko says: THEY are both very capable of scoring lots of goals, so I don't see any reason why not.
Pav has a tremendous record with us, while David Graham proved at Torquay he can score well over 20 in a campaign.
It was important for David to get off to a goalscoring start last weekend and he not only did that, he came up with a cracking winner for us.
We have missed that bit of individual skill to come up with something a bit special, but David certainly gave it us against Oldham and I was delighted for him.
Pav was doing exactly that sort of thing earlier in the season and I'm very much hoping his goal against Oldham - not the best he will ever score - will get him back in the groove.
I told David on his first morning with us that if he could get 15 goals before the end of the season we would have a great chance of promotion.
I think he thought I was crazy, but I'm not.
If he can do that and Pav can get back in the swing, we are going to take some stopping.
I've been impressed with David in training, he's looking a lot sharper and fitter than he was at this same stage last week and, above all, he looks a quality player in everything he does.
He has slotted into the club really well, too, and that's important.
ADNAN AHMED seems to have been dropped for one bad half at Chelsea. Do you not feel we need his creativity in midfield, bearing in mind he played in our great run at the end of last season? Harry Bryson, Scholes
Jacko says: I AGREE that Adnan showed tremendous form towards the end of last season, but we can't keep on looking back.
Adnan has to prove himself this season and, so far, he hasn't got back to his best.
I see him in training every day, which the fans don't, and he admits himself that he's not showing the same form of last season.
I've spoken to Adnan a couple of times over the last few weeks about this and we've gone through the whys and wherefores.
The one certain thing is that he will be back, because he's a good young player and, when he gets his chance, he's got to take it.
Michael Collins is in exactly that situation at Tranmere tonight. He's got the shirt, so he's got to keep it.
LET'S show Tranmere what we are made of. Do you agree it's a massive game for us after the win against Oldham and the way results have gone this week? Len, Moldgreen
Jacko says: YES, it's a big game for us.
We need to get on a run of three or four wins on the trot to really push us forward again.
It's too long since we won games back-to-back and it would be great to put that right against Tranmere.
A victory would give us six points out of six with the new leaders due to come to the Galpharm the following week.
If we can beat them on our own patch, then we'll have nine points out of nine and be flying again.
It's a big spell for this club, but there is never a time in the season when it isn't a big spell.
The fact remains we've still got a hell of a lot to play for this season.
We've got players coming back from injury and we've added David Graham and Dan Smith.
We've got a terrific chance.
IF WE are still third at the end of February I think we'll have a good chance of going up, do you agree? John, Dewsbury
Jacko says: THIS is a big month for everyone in the promotion race and we want to pick up as many points as we can.
I thought the League would have panned out a bit by now, but it's still very tight in the top half.
I still believe the top nine will be the ones who fill the automatic promotion places and the play-off slots.
We have not been in the best of form over the last couple of months, it's fair to say, and we haven't picked up the points we wanted to.
But we have got a lot of vital games to come and the points are there for the taking.
It was great to get that win under out belts against Oldham because we were so poor in the first half that we would could have been four or five goals adrift.
I gave the lads a right going over at half time and they responded.
We had got the lifeline of the own goal and then Pav scored quickly in the second half and, from there, we went on to win it.
So we got three points playing at something like 60% of our best - and I know we can `up' our performances.
I'M confident we've got the squad to go up, especially if our fans stick right behind the lads in every game. How important are the fans? David, Milnsbridge
Jacko says: THE supporters are obviously very important to us and we need everyone pulling in the same direction.
We need everybody to get right behind the lads and cheer the club on in every game we play.
Away from home, our backing is always magnificent.
Here at the Galpharm, it can sometimes go flat and a bit negative, but even last week when we were really struggling at one stage against Oldham, I thought our fans were really good.
I know it's important we give the fans something to cheer, but they also have a part to play when the going gets tough.
Last week we managed to pull through what was a very bad 45 minutes for us and, while we had a bit of luck along the way with the own goal, we scored a couple of good ones through Pav and David Graham and I'm hoping that could be the signal that our season is changing for the better again.
I've said all through this column this week what a good chance we've got of promotion, and I've got complete faith in my players.
Fans: Keep the faith!!
