Derby boss Jewell defends Chelsea's Grant

Derby County boss Paul Jewell insists Chelsea rival Avram Grant doesn't deserve the flak he's copping from the media.

Jewell, who takes his rock-bottom side to Chelsea tomorrow, declared: "Avram Grant ain't done too bad.

"But he has taken over from Jose Mourinho who was loved by the Chelsea fans. They were only going to put up with it while Grant was winning games. As soon as he loses a couple the knives were always going to be out for him."
