Speaking to Sky Sports News, Chairman Chris Mort has given his temporary backing to the manager, despite growing unrest amongst fans about the boss:
‘It is certainly not surprising the fans are not happy. We have had two disappointing home games on the trot the fans don’t want that, the manager doesn’t want that and we certainly don’t want that. No complaints they are disappointed with the results and we are to, but we must move on.
We would like to do [stand by him]. We have got an experienced manager who is clearly having a tough time but he is an experienced guy and will hopefully bring the team through.”
