Jewell: This Derby team would struggle in Championship

Derby County boss Paul Jewell admits his team would struggle in the Championship.

"I know what it takes to get out of the Championship and this team would struggle," Jewell said. "I will do everything I can to give the supporters a team they can be proud of."

Many of the players who rolled over against Villa are unlikely to be at Pride Park next season.

"There is a lot going on behind the scenes," Jewell said. "We already have deals in place for two new players and our search is widening and intensifying all the time. We are a huge embarrassment at the moment. When the going gets tough we don't have enough people who can stand up and be counted."
