Jacko Clarifies Assistance

6 February 2014

Jacko talks about his help on the training pitch and on the touchline

Mike Jackson mentioned in his post match interview following Brentford that former Walsall boss Chris Hutchings had been at the game taking a look at things.  He spoke about how Chris would be coming in this week to join in with the coaching sessions to give a fresh eye on things.

Jacko spoke about how he is on the lookout for help on the training pitch and how the decision is a massive one for him to take.  Since making the step up to caretaker manager he has been helped in training and on matchday by Danny Coyne, Chris Skitt, Scott Gormley and Dave Ashlin

Reports elsewhere in the media have suggested that Chris Hutchings has joined the club but as Jacko sat down for his post match interviews he confirmed that this is not the case yet:”Chris came and did a session on Tuesday and he will be in again today (Thursday) and it is still a case of us looking at him and him looking at us.

“There is nothing concrete as yet and as I spoke before it is a massive decision for me make and one that I won’t make a quick judgement on or rush into as it’s too important.

“At the end of the day it’s my decision and I will live and die by those and if I don’t get them right then it’s me to blame.

“I’ve worked under some great managers and coaches and it’s always good to have a few different voices on the training pitch.

“I remember when I was at Preston with David Moyes he would bring in three or four different coaches over time to take a session, friends of his and coaches and that was always a good change.”
