Support from owner and players but Paul says results have to improve quickly

Paul Jewell has told the Club website that he will be in charge of Blues for the game against Derby on Tuesday but he knows that results have to improve very quickly if he is to remain as Ipswich Town manager.

The boss saw Blues go down to Hull at the weekend and told the media after the game that he would consider his future over the weekend.

“I had another restless night on Saturday and then spoke to Marcus Evans [Club owner] on Sunday afternoon about the situation,” Paul told the Club website.

“We had a good chat and yet again, he gave me his 100 per cent backing. I couldn’t really ask for more support from the owner to be honest.

“I’ve had text messages of support from the players as well, from other managers and from players that have played for this Club – even some I have let go!

“That has meant a lot to me. I’ve spoken to the coaching staff and we’re now preparing for what is obviously a very important game on Tuesday against Derby.

“I said a few things after Saturday’s game – perhaps in the heat of the moment but it’s clear that results on the pitch have not been good enough. I can only continue to do my best for this football club to turn things around. That has to happen very quickly though.”
