Royals could regret remarks - Jewell

Football News
Paul Jewell has accused Reading of behaving like a Champions League club after assistant manager Kevin Dillon suggested the Royals should expect to win against Derby on Sunday.

Royals number two Dillon suggested they have the easiest game of the four sides still fighting for survival and spelled out his confidence a win at Pride Park will be enough to keep them up, adding: "Let´s put it this way, if we can´t beat Derby, it will be hard to take."

But the comments have infuriated Jewell, who said: "Kevin Dillon´s comments lack tact. You would think Reading had been playing Champions League all these seasons instead of down in the Championship and the Second Division where Derby and Wigan also came from."
