Paul Jewell acknowledges his Ipswich charges are currently entrenched in a relegation battle to remain in the Championship. The Tractor Boys fell to a seventh successive defeat against Watford on Saturday as they again let a lead slip from their grasp to go down 2-1 at Portman Road.

And Jewell, who now finds his own position under threat as the likes of Steve Bruce are linked as his replacement, knows his side are battling to remain in the second tier.

"There's no doubt about it and no getting away from it," he said.
