Jewell: '1-0 Hammering'

Jewell: '1-0 Hammering'

Wigan boss Paul Jewell went straight for the jugular when he pointed out the Carling Cup tie at the JJB was 'a 1-0 hammering', as the home side dominated the fourth-round tie virtually from start to finish.

The Wigan boss made nine changes from the side beaten 2-1 at home to Tottenham on Saturday, showing little respect for Graeme Souness' multi internationals. Amazingly the corner count for the first-half was 11-0 to the home side, underlining their superiority.

Jewell: 'We still have to be realistic as our aim is to stay in this league. If you offered me the choice now of winning our next three league games against Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United or winning the Carling Cup, then I would take winning the three Premiership matches. Don't get me wrong, I would love to do both, but we want to stay up at all costs, whatever it takes.

'I didn't think the goal was going to come. We played exceptionally well, and I thought the lads who came in were terrific. The penalty was a bit debatable but it was well deserved because we were the better team from start to finish.'
