I WOULD like to send the best wishes of myself, the players and everyone at Huddersfield Town to Charlie Beaumont.
Charlie, whose wife Sue is the head of our ticket office department, has just had a heart operation and we all wish him a speedy recovery.
Hopefully our excellent win down at Swindon will have done him a power of good!
GREAT win at Swindon. Had you become worried about the points gap to the play-off placings? John M, Dewsbury
Jacko says: IT WAS important we didn't let the gap get any bigger if possible.
It is like I've always said, though, we need to be in contention when we go to Hull City on New Year's Day.
Even then, there are still an awful lot of games to play, but we've cut the gap to the top six down to two points and I can't praise the lads highly enough for their performance on Wednesday night.
Against Wrexham, we all knew we'd been very disappointing but, after performances like that in the past, the lads have always bounced back and they didn't let me down against Swindon.
It was a big, big win for us against a strong Swindon side. They have a tremendous home record, but we went there and smashed it.
We needed the win just to push us back up a bit, but it's still an incredibly tight division with all to play for.
There is a tremendous attitude in this club and, while we might not have picked up the amount of points we wanted in the previous matches, there is no way we will give up the chase.
It's not in my nature, it's not in the staff's nature and it's certainly not in the players' nature.
IS Boothy's injury a blessing in disguise because it makes us play more through the midfield? Darren, Linthwaite
Jacko says: NO, I don't agree with that.
People tend to talk only about Boothy's aerial ability in their box and in ours, which is tremendous, and forget what a good player he is.
I don't remember people complaining about us hitting it long when we were walloping Hull with Boothy in the team - our best performance of the season.
We play excellently with Boothy in the team and, even though he does give us that option to knock the ball longer if we need to, I don't believe we just lump it when Boothy is in the line-up.
Boothy's experience and quality are very valuable to our squad and, as I've said in the past, he has done marvellously for this club.
WHAT did you think of the Juniors last Saturday? KL, e-mail
Jacko says: IT was excellent to see both the Under 18s and the Under 16s playing Forest.
Michael Collins and Tom Clarke caught my eye once again but it was a good performance by all the Under 18s and they had plenty of chances to win instead of draw 1-1.
The Under 16s have obviously got some terrific talent in their ranks as well and scored a good win, so it was good to see.
A lot of hard work goes into the Academy by all the staff, the groundsman does a great job in preparing the pitches up at Storthes Hall for the matches and I was pleasantly surprised by how many people turned up to watch.
Even though we didn't have a game, it was useful to go up there and, of course, I was able to jump in the car afterwards and nip over to Oldham to get a look at them.
NOW the physio has a radio link to the bench, why don't you sit in the stand initially to get a better view of our performances? Bill, Jackson Bridge
Jacko says: I'M not one for sitting up in the stand.
I tried it once and lasted 10 minutes, and I've no desire to try again.
I like to be close to the players and that means on the touchline.
DO you think Wrexham will survive despite having 10 points deducted for going into administration? Gerry, Holmfirth
Jacko says: I RECKON they've got every chance of staying up this season.
The points they've collected recently against us and Stockport have obviously been a big help, but to lose those points is clearly a big blow to their prospects.
At least they still have a club to fight for - and they are fighting for their lives - because in the week before they came here to the Stadium it looked very dodgy for them because of the financial situation.
Thankfully, they have survived and let's hope the darkest of their days are now behind them.
I know Denis Smith and how he operates and I'm sure he will keep them up.
Let's just hope that on the final day of the season, when we go to the Racecourse Ground to take them on again, that both clubs have got plenty for the fans to celebrate.
DO we have to accept that players like Sodje and Fowler are always going to get sent-off simply because of the way they play? Marcus Johnson, Thetford
Jacko says: NO, I don't think we have to accept it because, while I like my players to be aggressive, I want to see controlled aggression.
With Sodje, his sendings-off have not been because of rash challenges, they have come about through flailing arms and high elbows, and things like that are totally unnecessary.
I've said and done all I need to on that subject, other than to say I thought he had a tremendous game on his return on Wednesday night.
With Lee, he is likely to come under the spotlight because of the way he plays, but he can still control things more.
I want him to be committed, but he needs to do it in the right way.
Both Efe and Lee haven't got the best of disciplinary records, so it's something to work on and to cut out the stupid mistakes.
DO you anticipate any transfer activity either in or out in the next few weeks as the transfer window opens up? Mick, e-mail
Jacko says: I'm quite happy with my squad at the moment, especially having signed Paul Rachubka on a two-and-a-half year contract.
He showed his quality the other night at Swindon and, with the very sad news about Ian Gray's retirement from the game, it's great to have Paul on board.
As for anyone going out of the club, that is out of our hands, although we certainly don't have to sell anyone at this stage.
Our directors' box is full of scouts for every game and it was the same down at Swindon on Wednesday.
It's only understandable that clubs are going to come and look at good, up-and-coming players like Nathan Clarke, David Mirfin, Andy Holdsworth, Jon Worthington and the rest and we have to acknowledge that fact.
But we don't have to sell anyone and the only way anyone will be leaving will be if the offer is too good to turn down.
WE haven't heard anything about the FA Drugs squad this season. Have they been to Town and, if so, what was the result? Dean, e-mail
Jacko says: YES, we've had one visit so far and I'm glad to report there were no problems.
Who knows when they will next turn up? That's the beauty of the system, but I don't anticipate it will bother us in the slightest.
