Jewell excited by Leeds tie

Published Add your comment

Paul Jewell is looking forward to the prospect of Derby's Carling Cup clash against Leeds.

The Rams boss saw his side set up a fourth round tie against Gary McAllister's side at Pride Park next week with a 4-1 triumph at Brighton.

"There is bound to be a tremendous atmosphere. Leeds are doing very well and it has got the makings of a decent game," said Jewell.

Despite the margin of victory at the Withdean Stadium, Jewell was not happy with his side's overall performance against Brighton.

He said: "We haven't got the Forest match out of our system.

"It was a long journey down and with two games in quick succession we looked jaded at times. But the players deserve credit for getting through."
