Derby boss Jewell has no regrets slamming players

Derby boss Paul Jewell has no regrets over berating his players publicly after the weekend defeat to Wigan.

Jewell called the 2-0 loss at his former club a 'disgrace' and has barely calmed down since.

"I don't regret it at all," Jewell told BBC Radio Derby. "What I said was true, 100 per cent true.

"I'll defend the players whenever I possibly can if there is decent reason. But I'm still angry now, and it's Tuesday."

County are currently 14 points from safety, have a awful goal difference of minus 44 - and relegation is a matter of when not if. I'm not going to name them individually but as a group of players," he said. "We're all responsible - it was disgraceful.

"I have to stand in front of the media and justify certain things - or try to justify certain things. But I'm not going to try and justify the performance I witnessed on Saturday."
