Paul Jewell will be in charge against Barnsley

IPSWICH Town chief executive Simon Clegg has revealed that Paul Jewell will be in charge for Saturday’s trip to Barnsley.

As exclusively revealed by this website on Monday, Jewell still retains the support of Clegg and Town owner Marcus Evans on the back of six games without a win and sitting in 23rd in the Championship.

In an interview with Ipswich Player on the club’s official website, Clegg said: “Paul will be our manager for the game on Saturday at Barnsley, no question.

“It’s business as usual. We are obviously disappointed with our position in the table but we are working desperately hard to turn the situation around.

“Paul is more conscious than anyone what needs to happen. He puts huge pressure on himself and I’m confident that he is the right man to get us heading in the right direction.”

In the interview, Clegg also addresses the Harry Redknapp rumours and Evans’ continued commitment to the club.
