6 February 2004 : Jacko: The end is nigh?
Reports coming from Dagenham & Redbridge are claiming that the Conference side have agreed a fee with Yeovil for on-loan striker Kirk Jackson and that Jacko will decide where his future lies when his loan period expires in a fortnight's time.

The 27-year-old striker has also been linked with Woking, with Cards manager Glenn Cockeril an evident admirer: "I've spoken to Kirk and offered him terms and now it's up to him," Cockeril told the Woking News & Mail. "He is still ambitious and wants to play in the Third Division and has asked his name to be circulated to all the Third Division clubs. But I have sold Woking in the best way I can and once he has seen out his loan spell at Dagenham he will make a decision. He would bring the goalscoring prowess which I haven't got in the squad. He knows where the net is and I'm confident he could make the difference for us."

With the arrival of Walsall striker Andy Bishop on loan at Huish Park with a view to a permanent deal, it is now obvious that Jacko's days with Yeovil are numbered, something that will be a big disappointment to the frontman who would have been hoping to make his mark in league football this season.

Bishop, meanwhile, has been talking about his hopes for the next month and beyond. "It's nice to be at a team challenging for promotion." the Walsall striker told the Western Daily Press. "I've not been at Yeovil long but it's clear that they are a club that is going places. I know that the lads are disappointed with their recent results, but there is still a buzz around the place. Everyone looks really sharp in training and I'm glad to be a part of it. I knew Yeovil were a good club and when I spoke to Colin Lee (Walsall manager) he agreed. It's a good opportunity for me and if things work out I'd love to sign. If not I'll go back and fight for my place at Walsall."

Speaking to the Yeovil Express, Glovers boss Gary Johnson said of the 21-year-old: "Andy was a big prodigy at Walsall as a youngster and he was being tipped to play in the Premiership, but due to Walsall having a number of managerial changes he hasn't really been given a chance. But we have watched him and we think he could do us a good job. He will be here for a month, but there is a view to a permanent move. He's been down here and watched us and likes what he's seen."

Bishop will be in the squad for tomorrow's visit to Kidderminster Harriers and wingers Lee Elam and Nick Crittenden are also expected to be fit after missing the last 2 games apiece with ankle and hamstring injuries respectively. Defenders Terry Skiverton, Colin Pluck and Paul Terry all have knee injuries and will face late fitness tests tomorrow.
