Paul Jewell drops player after 7-1 defeat

Ipswich manager Paul Jewell is still angry with Lee Lartin following his sending off in the sides 7-1 hammering by Peterborough at the weekend.

Although the 24-year-old was a little unlucky to be dismissed for his sliding tackle just before half-time, jJewell sees things differently.

“I’m not speaking to him,” said Jewell at this morning’s press conference with the local media, before solemnly adding “seriously”.

“He’s got to earn the right to start training with the first team again because I’ve had enough with his disciplinary record. It’s not as if he’s the most battle hardened midfielder is it?

“I don’t mind players getting booked for honest challenges, but Lee’s are always silly and petty. I’ve had enough of that nonsense.

“Whether his was actually a sending off is debateable, but he’s given the referee the opportunity to do it.

“It was not a very mature tackle and the fact that he got clapped off afterwards really winds me up.

“Lee is a player who has done well for me, but he missed too many games for me last season due to indiscipline and now he’s going to miss another three games.”
