Since then they have take just two points from six matches and although they sit 13th, they are only a point above the bottom three.

They still have to face the likes of Arsenal - on Saturday - Manchester United and Manchester City in their remaining eight matches but co-owner Venkatesh Rao remains optimistic.

'We are absolutely committed to the club and that won't be changing any day,' he told the Lancashire Telegraph.

'Of course we are worried but we have to play well and get together as a team, and we have to get out of the situation.

'You have to win sometimes and you have to lose sometimes, but we have to come out of this situation, that's very sure. But we are always positive and we will be positive.'

Venky's search for a new chairman to replace John Williams, who left the club in February, continues despite speculation over a number of candidates.

'We are looking at it but there is nothing thus far, this is also speculation,' added Rao.
