Paul Jewell ready to fight on as Ipswich manager
Tuesday 23 October 2012
Ipswich boss Paul Jewell admits his future is still very much in the balance as he prepares to lead his struggling side into tonight's npower Championship clash with former employers Derby at Portman Road.
Jewell said he would consider his future after Saturday's defeat at Hull made it 10 games without a win but vowed to fight on after receiving support from club chairman Marcus Evans.
Jewell said: "It is clear 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."
