“Of course it’s been a difficult week. We’ve not got the results that we’ve wanted.

“There’s no choice in these situations. We have to move forward really quickly and deal with the added pressure.

“Right now it’s about fighting to put on strong performances and victories until the end of the season.

“There’s no drama, there’s no chaos, no turmoil. The truth is we’ve had poor results and that’s what needs to be addressed."

Ian added that he fully understands the disappointment felt by supporters with regards to recent results and is determined to repay them beween now and the end of the season.

“We have probably some of the most powerful and passionate supporters anywhere in Britain, in terms of how they rallied during the club’s darkest moments.

“So in relation to the incredible support this club has, that’s the area where I share the frustration and disappointment of not allowing them to get excited about the things we believe we can achieve.

“That’s the bit that gives me anger and upsets me. It’s up to us to put that right.”
