Preston boss Darren Ferguson is not feeling the pressure ahead of side's clash with fellow strugglers Crystal Palace on Saturday.
North End sit second bottom in the Championship after a disappointing start to the campaign and welcome Palace to Deepdale knowing the three points would take them above George Burley's side.
However, Ferguson is adamant that even if his side do not claim victory, his job his safe.
"It's not a case that if we're beaten on Saturday I'll be sacked," he told BBC Radio Lancashire. "We're all in this together and it's a long term project.
"We've got a developing team. The players are 100% behind me, so the fans have to accept we're going through a bad run."
