Jewell plays down spat

Wigan Athletic manager Paul Jewell has played down a falling out between strike pair Jason Roberts and Nathan Ellington.
The duo are believed to have fallen out over a misplaced pass during The Latics' 1-0 win over Ipswich Town back on March 5.
However, Jewell is having none of the disagreement and believes some people are trying to have an unnecessary dig at his side.
"It's complete nonsense and that's what I'm saying about people trying to pick holes where there isn't any," said Jewell to Sky Sports News.
"They had a fall-out, it's no big deal. We all fall out with people you just get on with it. We're all men not boys.
"As far as I'm concerned and as far as the club is concerned we've seen them train this morning, I don't see any problems. No, it's not an issue."
The pair were back on target at the weekend with each netting a goal in Wigan's 2-0 success over Millwall at The JJB.
