Jewell tastes victory at last

13 Aug 2008 - 10:48:27

Derby County boss Paul Jewell was finally able to celebrate a victory at the 37th time of asking, as the Rams edged through to the second round of the Carling Cup.

Striker Nathan Ellington scored a hat-trick as Derby won 3-1 at home to League Two Lincoln City, with his first goal coming five minutes from the end of normal time just as the Red Imps looked set for a shock win.

Jewell told the Evening Telegraph: "Thank goodness for that. It is sheer relief because it has been a long time since we won.

"We are not getting carried away. It is one game, but I cannot underestimate the importance of it.

"I don't think there is any doubt we were the better team, but at 1-0 we were looking down the barrel.

"The shackles just lifted once we scored and all of a sudden there was a spring in our step and we showed character to come back.

"Lincoln gave everything and made it difficult, but hopefully the win will see us move forward."
