Ipswich manager Paul Jewell expecting relegation battle

Ipswich Town boss, Paul Jewell, believes his side are currently amongst the club’s fighting for Championship safety.

Midway through October, Jewell had led his side to sixth in the table, however, the Tractor Boys, currently seven games without a point, have slipped to 21st place, and only remain out of the relegation zone on goal difference.

Their 2-1 defeat to Watford on Saturday saw Town let slip a leading position once again and record the club’s worst run of results for 16 years.

Jewell, speaking about the relegation scrap they currently face said: “There’s no doubt about it and no getting away from it.” as his side prepare for a trip to the in-form Barnsley.

Jewell’s position as manager has come under scrutiny in recent times following their dismal run, and with the likes of Steve Bruce now linked to the job to replace him, the 47 year old knows he has to turn things around quickly.

However with Ipswich owner, Marcus Evans, coming out and announcing he has ‘huge confidence’ in Jewell, he will be hoping that the Portman Road outfit can recapture their early season form, and become challengers for the Play-offs once again.
