Blackpool thrashing doesn’t alter Jewell’s plans in the transfer market
IPSWICH Town manager Paul Jewell says Saturday’s 6-0 thrashing at Blackpool doesn’t alter his plans in the transfer market.
The window for permanent deals closes in little under a week’s time. And the Blues boss – who has just brought in midfielder Guirane N’Daw on a season-long loan from St Etienne – is targeting two or three more.
“If we’d have won today I’d have been saying we need players anyway,” said Jewell. “Everyone knows we’re bare.
“We’ve got N’Daw in, he’ll be a good asset for us with a bit of strength and height, but we need at least two more players to come into the squad, if not three.
“Defeat, as painful as it is, doesn’t change my thoughts about this squad.

With the Blues staying in the north west until their Capital One Cup clash at League One side Carlisle United tomorrow night, Jewell added: “We’re here, we got beat by six and we’ve got to deal with it.
