MANAGER’S REACTION: Jewell slams his players for ‘thinking they’ve made it’

IPSWICH Town manager Paul Jewell slammed his players for ‘thinking they’ve made it’ after a nightmare few days in the north west was capped off by a Capital One Cup defeat at Carlisle United tonight.

Just three days after a 6-0 thrashing at Blackpool, the Blues capitulated at Brunton Park – the League One side grabbing a last-gasp leveller and then a winner in extra-time.

“Some of them think they’ve arrived and think they are good players because people have being saying nice things about them, but the last two results should be a wake-up call to them,” said the furious Blues boss.

“You think you’re making progress, but when it becomes a little bit physical and the not so pretty stuff happens, we just haven’t got enough players in the group who can see those times out.”

With Carlos Edwards (groin), Luke Hyam (hamstring) and Josh Carson (groin) all suffering injuries over the last few days, an already thin Blues squad is set to look very stretched for Saturday’s visit of Huddersfield Town to Portman Road.
