Paul Jewell Under Pressure At Ipswich

Read the latest article here: Paul Jewell's Ipswich Town Future In Doubt

Ipswich Town manager Paul Jewell is on the brink of losing his job following a poor run of results, which has seen the club slip from promotion candidates to relegation strugglers. The former Wigan boss has also come under pressure for the comments he made about a female linesman in the aftermath of Town's mid-week defeat to Birmingham. The Tractor Boys face a tough trio of upcoming games against promotion pushing Blackpool, Leeds and West Ham, and if they fail to get anything from these matches then Jewell will almost certainly be given the boot.

It was not too long ago that Ipswich were in the top six, however, a string of miserable results have seen them plummet down the table, and they now sit just three points above the relegation zone. The club owner Marcus Evans and Chief Executive Simon Clegg recently insisted that the club are "some distance" from sacking Jewell. However, if the mediocre performances continue then they will surely be forced to eat their words. At the moment there is no sign of improvement, with the club losing their last four matches in all competitions, including an FA Cup third round defeat at Hull last weekend. Their 2-1 defeat to Birmingham City on Wednesday leaves them hovering dangerously down in 20th.

In contrast to the club's owner and chief executive, many supporters clearly aren't as patient, growing restless with recent results and would therefore like to see a new man in charge. Neil Warnock has been suggested as a possible replacement. Warnock, who was sacked by QPR last Sunday, has been linked with a move to the club in the past. The 63-year-old was a serious candidate to replace Jim Magilton back in 2009, however, Ipswich opted for Roy Keane instead.

Ipswich host promotion pushing Blackpool on Saturday. Stan James have installed the visitors as the 6/4 favourites, while Ipswich are priced at 13/8 to win what would be a valuable three points. A draw is available at 23/10.
