Paul Jewell has revealed that he will remain as Ipswich Town boss for tomorrow's home clash with Derby.

The under pressure manager revealed that he was considering quitting the Suffolk club after Saturday's defeat away to Hull.

Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Hull left struggling Town winless in 10 games and still second-bottom in the table.

He revealed on the club website that he has received the complete backing of owner Marcus Evans and his players, among many others, when weighing up his decision and has opted to stay, although he acknowledges results must improve and quickly.

I had another restless night on Saturday and then spoke to Marcus Evans on Sunday afternoon about the situation.

"We had a good chat and yet again he gave me his 100 per cent backing. I couldn't really ask for more support from the owner to be honest.

I said a few things after Saturday's game - perhaps in the heat of the moment but it's clear that results on the pitch have not been good enough.

I can only continue to do my best for this football club to turn things around. That has to happen very quickly though.

– Paul Jewell
