Shola Ameobi: "Obviously the fans are entitled to that. They pay their money to come and watch us play and hopefully win and when we are not doing that, it's understandable that they are frustrated.
"But I'd like to say there is no-one as frustrated as the players ourselves and the manager.
"We understand that the team here is geared to win and when we are not doing that, the fans are entitled to that.
"But they have to keep on believing because as players, we are and we are working as hard as we can. We are just not getting the rub of the green at the moment, and that's usually what happens when you are down there fighting in the relegation spots.
"The message from our point of view is keep on believing, keep on backing us and hopefully, we can turn this around sooner rather than later.
"We have got a very good group of lads who have, I believe, the attitude that it takes to be a great side.
"Unfortunately, when you go on a losing run, it's hard to break out of it, and that's what we are finding now.
"But it's not for the lack of endeavour, not for the lack of trying and we have got characters in there who want to help this club win."
