Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Ince voiced his intent to fight on after seeing his side well beaten 3-0 by Wigan Athletic at the JJB Stadium.
Ince's position was precarious before the loss to the Latics, but the former England midfielder sees no reason to throw in the towel just yet.
He said: "There is no point feeling sorry for yourself, there is no point in the players feeling sorry for themselves, they have just got to keep believing.
"It is easier said than done when you are not winning games and you perform like we did in the first 45 minutes, which was very disappointing.
"We felt we could not only get something out of the game but win it.
"Everyone was buzzing in the changing room and then with 12 minutes gone we are 2-0 down and the game was gone.
"What can you do? It is no good improving in the second half. It doesn't do anything.
"I'm very disappointed with the players. We are hurting at this moment in time.
"We let our fans down and obviously they are going to voice their frustration as anyone would and rightly so because we let them down today."
