Ternent 'splits' from Derby boss Jewell

Derby County assistant boss Stan Ternent admits he's split up with Paul Jewell!

Jewell and No 2 Ternent have shared a flat while they wait for house moves to go ahead.

Ternent joked: "I had to move out - I was sick of doing the Hoovering!

"I've spent more time with the manager than my wife!

"It's not just about us working together. We're friends, too."

Derby are winless since Jewell's arrival nine games ago and tonight face a tricky FA Cup replay at Sheffield Wednesday.

Ternent added: "We are looking for our first win. And a cup run would be good for confidence - and Paul's sanity.

"We've both been successful and it's not nice when you're talking nine games without a win."
