WE have the second best first-half record in the division and the next-to-worst second-half record. How are you going to change it? Chris, e-mail
Jacko says: IT'S a statistic I'm well aware of and it is very disappointing.
We seem to concede goals at silly times - like just after half time and near the end of games - which doesn't help.
We also seem to be vulnerable immediately before half time as well.
People have said that because our second-half record is much worse, we must have a fitness problem - but I don't believe that at all.
I think it's more a lack of concentration at vital times in games which is letting us down.
In this division, too, any mistakes which we make are more likely to get punished.
The teams we were playing against last season in the Third Division probably took one chance in four, whereas this season the opposition are more likely to take one chance in two.
There are some good strikers around - like Howard and Vine who we will face tomorrow - and whoever plays against them will have to be right on top of their game.
Howard, in particular, is a big, strong, physical presence for them and they aim to play off him a lot.
At Kenilworth Road, we did a very good job against both him and Vine and we will need the same tomorrow.
DO you agree the midfield need to provide better protection for the defence and also to retain possession longer that they do at the moment? Andy, Huddersfield
Jacko says: MUCH has been made of me blaming the defence for our problems at Walsall and it's fair to say that defending starts from the front, whichever system you play.
Sometimes the midfield have to take responsibility for defensive matters as well.
They do have to protect and screen the back-four at times and, when we play three up front, it can leave us a little bit exposed in the midfield department.
With regard to possession, we do have a tendancy to give the ball away a bit too easily, but I think a lot of teams in this division are guilty of that, not just us.
On the training ground, we do an awful lot of work geared towards keeping the ball better, and the players know it's something I'm very keen on.
When we've got the ball, we are a very fluent attacking side.
ARE we relying too much on Efe Sodje and do you think it might help everyone to try different options? Season-ticket holder, e-mail
Jacko says: EVERYONE knows my feelings on Sodje - when he plays well we win and when he doesn't, we tend to leak goals.
He is certainly not our only inconsistent player this season, though. The whole team have been generally inconsistent.
I keep telling Efe that this is the best club he's ever played for and he does love it here. When I took the captaincy off him it really hurt him.
I think Efe has done okay this season, but he knows he can do better and so do I.
COSTLY errors apart, 4-4-2 was working, so why switch to 4-3-3 which leaves us overrun in the middle and vulnerable at the back? Lee, Mirfield
Jacko says: WHEN I brought Luke Beckett in I thought it would be a great option to play him alongside Pawel Abbott and Andy Booth and I do think it has worked for us.
I agree with what you are saying that, in a 4-3-3 system, you can become overrun in midfield in certain situations, but I fully accepted that could be the case when I brought the system in.
I knew the consequences of playing three up front, but just look at our scoring record since the three lads played together - eight in three matches.
That tally should have earned us more than it has, but it's a good point that you bring up.
BEFORE the Walsall game you highlighted Merson as the danger, so why wasn't he man-marked? DMH, Shelley
Jacko says: RATHER than playing up front, he operated just behind the strikers and that meant we had to push Steve Yates forward to pick him up.
Our three midfield players then had to push onto their other three midfield men, but if you don't defend properly as a whole it doesn't matter how you tackle the job, you are going to come unstuck.
I THINK Junior Mendes is great. Is there any chance of him playing wide, with Chris Brandon on the other flank? JV, Huddersfield
Jacko says: IF we play 4-4-2 then Junior is an obvious option to do exactly what you say.
He played out wide for Mansfield, I know he enjoys playing in that position and, when he comes off the bench for us, he is capable of causing our opposition all sorts of problems.
I thought he had a terrific game playing wide right against Boston Reserves last week, which is why I put him back on the bench at Walsall and, if he comes on, I know he won't let me down in the senior side.
It's a shame that he hasn't been able to regain his best form since going off to play for Montserrat, because before that he was scoring goals and forming a very good partnership with Pawel Abbott.
His confidence has suffered a bit since then, but Junior has still got a lot to offer us this season.
IS there any chance of signing Luke Beckett? JV, Huddersfield
Jacko says: WE will have to wait and see.
Luke has tomorrow's game with us and the following trip to MK Dons before his loan is up.
There has been talk of Sheffield United signing another striker, so whether we can keep him longer or not will probably depend on that.
Needless to say, I'm extremely pleased with how Luke is doing for us and he's really enjoying it here.
I THOUGHT Ahmed did well at Walsall. Will he get a chance to show what he can do? Lucy, Bradford
Jacko says: I AM very pleased with Adnan and, believe me, it won't be long before he makes a full first-team appearance.
COULD clips from last season's promotion be played on the stadium TV sets before matches to get the fans in upbeat mood? Chris, e-mail
Jacko says: GREAT idea. I still watch Keep the Faith myself when we've had a poor performance or a bad result.
It always cheers me up and reminds me what can be achieved through sheer hard work and determination.
Martyn Booty's son, who is seven, also watches it every night before he goes to bed, which is great.
WHY not praise the positive among our fans rather than dwell on the negatives? Tim Porter, e-mail
Jacko says: I COULDN'T ask for better backing than I get from 95% of our supporters, and that's been the case as player and manager at this club.
There are always those who will grumble, whatever we do, but the letters I have had from fans over the last couple of weeks have been truly tremendous.
Every one has been positive and all the people I speak to are being positive, so that's wonderful.
I know I'm doing the right things, the club is heading in the right direction and the vast majority of supporters are right behind me.
