Derby County boss Paul Jewell admits he's "hurting inside" as he leads the worst team in Premiership history back to the Championship.
"Derby came up via the play-offs and former manager Billy Davies said it was possibly two years too early. Maybe it is.
"You have got to take the opportunity though. We have not been good enough and I include myself in that as I've been here 20 games.
"But it would be good for football if the teams that come up can stay up. I did it at Wigan and Bradford so it can be done, but it is very difficult."
