Paul Jewell thinks Ipswich Town can turn fortunes around

IPSWICH Town manager Paul Jewell believes the Blues are on the cusp of turning their fortunes around as they try to put a halt to a seven-game losing skid.

Speaking at today’s press conference, the under-pressure boss said: “It can turnaround very quickly. I understand we can’t keep losing matches, I’m not daft.

“But if we can get one result, it can turn into three or four very quickly and everything looks different.”

On the pressure he faces, Jewell added: “The longer you go without winning, it does put pressure on players and managers, everyone to try and get a win.

“But if you can’t deal with pressure, don’t be a football manager – or a footballer because they have to deal with pressure as well.

“I have lost seven games on the bounce so I am under pressure.

“Against Burnley, we were abject but against Watford we were really unlucky. Things didn’t fall for us, the players worked ever so hard. We were desperately unlucky, but I don’t like to blame luck because we are not in this situation because we have been unlucky.
