Derby boss Jewell has no Wigan regrets

Derby County boss Paul Jewell has no regrets leaving Wigan Athletic after yesterday's 1-0 defeat.

"I've no regrets about leaving Wigan. They are a decent side, and I've maintained that all along," said Jewell. "I'm honestly enjoying my time here, although I'm obviously not enjoying losing, but I've a long-term vision.

"When I look back on my time at Wigan we lost 5-1 at Wrexham in the LDV Vans Trophy, and we were bottom of the old League one at the time.

"Now while it looks like we're going to go down here, there's a lot more to be excited about in the future for me.

"To go forward you have to take knocks. I've taken them in the past, yet I've ended up being successful.

"I'm taking them now, and hopefully I can end up being successful here too."
