'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Crumbs Of Comfort For Jewell

Paul Jewell was pleased to see us advance to round 3 of the Carling Cup after beating Preston 1-0 on Tuesday, but will not be content until he sees a win in the league. That monkey is still weighing heavy on his, and our backs, and he knows he is still under pressure.

'We are not out of the woods, but it is a step in the right direction. As much as you cannot get two disheartened about a couple of defeats in the league, you cannot get too excited about a victory.

'As soon as we win a league game, the monkey will be off our back.

'Crumbs of comfort are what we are after at the moment.

Our lack of confidence saw us get off to a nervy start, but he could see this confidence returning once we scored and is looking to take this forward into our upcoming league matches as we look to get our season up and running.

'You could see in patches the nervousness, the lack of confidence that was there at times. But we became more confident as the game went on, having started the match a bit edgy.

'There was a spring in their step once they had scored. I said to them 'Don't be frightened of scoring another'.

'We can watch as many videos, get as many psychologists as we want, but there is only one way to make confidence and that is by winning football matches.

'It doesn't matter how you win it. I wouldn't say the game was pretty but at least we showed a bit of spirit, a bit of fight.'

Jewell was talking to the official website.

We have done this twice in the Carling Cup now, so now it is time to break that physiological barrier and find that illusive league win, and starting this Saturday would be good!
