Despondent Derby manager Paul Jewell is adamant he did the right thing in walking away from Wigan last season, despite seeing the Rams move a step closer to relegation.

An Antoine Sibierski strike just 43 seconds after his arrival as an 81st-minute substitute for Wigan was enough to condemn Derby to a seventh successive Premier League defeat at Pride Park.

Yet Jewell, who quit Wigan after saving them from the drop on the final day of last season, firmly believes the tide will turn, saying: "I´ve no regrets about leaving Wigan. They are a decent side, and I´ve maintained that all along. I´m honestly enjoying my time here, although I´m obviously not enjoying losing, but I´ve a long-term vision."
