Derby boss Paul Jewell shrugged off his side´s status as the worst team in Premier League history after a 3-1 defeat to Blackburn on Saturday and insisted his thoughts have already turned towards next season.

The Rams´ defeat means they will be unable to match Sunderland´s previous worst mark of 15 points but Jewell admitted he never really believed his side could claim the six points from two games required to beat the mark.

Jewell said: "It´s not about that. It would have been nice to have got six points from our last two games but we all know on the form we´ve shown this season it wasn´t going to happen."
