Derby boss: We are fighting a lost battle

Derby County are doomed for good and only the most insane of persons would vote for a confidence in the rock bottom Premiership club in clawing themselves out of the relegation hole. And thankfully, Paul Jewell is not that man.

The Derby manager has confessed to Sky Sports that he is not to confident that Derby will make it. He says:

No footballer or any manager likes to admit defeat. All I would say is that it is looking highly likely that we will be in the Championship next season. But while there’s games and points to play for we have to give it our best for ourselves and the supporters. There’s no other way around it. I’m not going to say I think we are going to claw it back, because it will be a miracle beyond miracles if we do. But we have got 13 or 14 games left now to try and restore some pride.

Pride? Well, Derby County do play their home matches at pride park, don’t they? But I guess it wouldn’t be a matte of pride when Derby play in the Championship next season.
