Jewell denies sexist remark


Paul Jewell has vehemently denied that his criticism of assistant referee Amy Fearn following Ipswich's defeat to Birmingham on Wednesday night contained a sexist remark.

Jewell said after the match: "I think everyone to a man thought it was a penalty. Unfortunately to every man, but not a woman." But he said yesterday: "I didn't suggest in any way that the official made a mistake because she was a woman."
