Huddersfield Town boss Mark Robins has vowed to stick to his passing principles as he works to propel the club back up the Championship.
A cruel last-gasp home loss to Bolton has left his side 17th, and too close to the relegation zone for complete comfort.
Joe Mason’s stoppage-time strike spelled a fourth defeat in a run of seven games without a win.
Manager Robins accepted that while he is feeling frustrated, Town’s fans are getting edgy.
But as he continued preparations for tomorrow’s clash with Ipswich back at the John Smith’s Stadium, he urged: “Stick with us.
“Fans pay their money and have the right to make their feelings known.
“Recent results have been a disappointment, and I will take any stick that comes my way.
“But I won’t change the way we are doing things.
“There’s no chance of us playing from back to front. If I was to go that way, I would be a coward.
“I came here because the club wanted the job done in a way I believe in.”
Robins denied he felt under pressure and said the “way forward” has been decided between himself, chairman Dean Hoyle, director and head of football operations Ross Wilson and chief executive Nigel Clibbens.
He added: “We are doing things a certain way to a certain budget, and it won’t always be easy – change never is – but I firmly believe we are using our resources the best way we can.”
