Bristol City chairman Steve Lansdown is adamant that Keith Millen will not be axed even though Saturday's 3-0 home defeat to Norwich City left the Robins at the foot of the Championship table.
Millen took on the managerial role at Ashton Gate when Steve Coppell resigned after just one game of the season and has been criticised by the club's fans.
However, Lansdown said: "We have to put the Norwich game behind us now. It's a time to stick together because we haven't become a bad football club overnight.
"The fans are having a go at Keith and certain players, but if they think there's a lack of commitment they're wrong. We need them to stand by us.
"We now have two weeks to stew on being bottom and we have to use that time to ensure we come back stronger. The only ones who can do that are the players and the manager. They have to show passion and commitment to make it happen."
