YOU have awarded extended contracts to seven players, but how much leeway is there to bring in fresh blood and when do you anticipate this might happen? Claire, Dalton
Jacko says: I AM working to an extremely tight budget and we are probably in the situation where players would have to move on for others to be brought in.
Where we might have some leeway is with loan signings, and we still have plenty of those under our belt.
I am happy with the squad, though, and particularly with the form we are showing at the moment.
It has been a tricky season in terms of injuries and suspensions, because there hasn't been a single stage where we've had a full squad to select from.
But I have been delighted with the way players have come into the first team - a lot of young ones among them - and done so well.
That's been vital because there have been times when we have been very stretched.
You only have to look at last week's trip down to Cambridge, when we basically had only 16 fit players to choose from, to realise that we have needed everyone to do their bit.
WHO do you think has done the best of the Academy lads who have stepped into the first team so well this season? G Sunderland, e-mail
Jacko says: IT is very difficult to choose because the young lads have all done well, but I do think that David Mirfin has a massive amount of talent and potential.
He has stepped straight out of the Academy and into the first-team ranks remarkably well and he has taken it all in his stride.
Even when I plunged him straight into the first team against Sunderland in pre-season, both him and Paul Scott played superbly well in the centre-back positions.
It is a shame that Mirf has been out for so long through injury, but he is back to full training now, playing matches and he was on the first-team bench down at Cambridge last Saturday.
As a former centre-back, I really do think he's a very good prospect who will earn a really good living from the game.
He is strong, he is quick and he is very good on the ball, so I am delighted that he has extended his contract for the next couple of years.
I think David Mirfin is going to be an outstanding player and that's good news for this club, but as I said at the outset, I'm pleased with all the young lads.
HAVING played everyone in the Third Division, who are you most looking forward to meeting again? Mick Jefferies, e-mail
Jacko says: I AM looking forward to every game at the moment and so are the lads, but there are a couple of results and performances I'd like to make up for when we get the chance.
The two heavy defeats we suffered against Scunthorpe and Macclesfield are still the ones which rankle the most when you look at the first half of the season.
To lose 6-2 and 4-0 when most of our games have been quite tight really hurt, so if we owe the opposition a good game in any of the matches to come, then I suppose you could say it's those two.
It would be nice to repay York for our only home defeat, too, when we travel to Bootham Crescent a week on Sunday.
While I realise the switch in date might be inconvenient for some, I hope the bulk of our fans will still be able to travel across there and get behind the lads.
Every single voice is appreciated at our away games and, after tomorrow, we've got three of the next four matches away from home, so it's important.
HOW do you think Lloyd and Holdsworth have done? Tracy Sanderson, W Yorks
Jacko says: THEY have both come in and looked perfectly at home in the first team.
Andy Holdsworth did really well in pre-season and he has continued to develop week by week, even though he has now played a lot more first-team games than Reserve fixtures.
Andy has a lot of ability and could become a terrific player if he continues to work and learn.
It's much the same for Lloydy, who is only 19.
Since Rob Edwards first got injured, he has come in and made that left side of the team his own.
I think he deserves a great deal of credit, because he had no previous senior experience, and his attitude has been exactly what you want.
I am delighted that both of them have extended their contracts, because they will only get better the more matches they play and they've got a lot of potential which, hopefully, will be fulfilled for the good of this football club.
HOW pleased are you with the passion on the pitch and the passion in the stands? Oliver O, e-mail
Jacko says: IT IS important for supporters to realise that we are a very young side and we are bound to have our ups and downs.
I think the players enjoy playing for Huddersfield Town, though, and while we will have highs and lows along the way I think the supporters are reasonably happy with how things are going.
I said at the start of the season that I wanted to restore pride in this club, and I think we are doing that both on and off the pitch.
We will have blips, but we've got a set of players here who do take pride in the shirt, and we have a set of fans who are just crying out for success after some troubled times.
WHAT did you think of the backing from 700-plus fans at Cambridge last week? Ivor, Sowerby Bridge
Jacko says: I WAS delighted, and especially when we received a letter in the week from the people at Cambridge saying our fans were the best they've had down there for years.
Considering our away form until the last couple of trips, the support has been magnificent all over the country because our fans have had precious little to cheer away from the McAlpine.
At places like Sunderland and Darlington, and even at places like Yeovil on a night, we have received tremendous backing and it really is appreciated by the team.
EFE SODJE always seems to be around when we score from set-pieces. What are his instructions and when is he actually going to score? Rob Davies, Huddersfield
Jacko says: HIS instructions are to score!
I really do think Efe should have had a goal or two by now.
I can think of at least three good chances he has had from corners and, for a player who is as strong in the air as he is, it's a disappointment that he hasn't made the scoresheet so far.
Efe is making a nuisance of himself in the box, though, and if Jon Worthington hadn't scored at Cambridge then Efe might well have done.
I am intrigued to know what sort of celebration we will get out of him when he does finally hit the net. Knowing Efe, it could be anything!
WE have conceded only three goals in the last five matches since the debacle at Macclesfield. What has been the difference? Henry C Jones, Wyke
Jacko says: I HAVE said all the way through the season that when we defend properly we will do really well.
Defending properly means everyone in the team taking responsibility, because every good team defends from the front.
We have been doing that well in the last five matches - that's why we've had a much improved run of results - and our defence have also been playing well as individuals.
The fact of the matter is that we have cut out the stupid mistakes, so the answer to the question is concentration.
Focus on the job for the full 90 minutes and we look a strong team.
And, if we keep things tight at the back, we have got the talent up front to win us football matches.
