Stoke City director Nathan Jones insists despite not recording a win in their first 10 Championship games this season, hell fight to be successful at the club.
Before directing the Hatters the Welshman arrived from Luton after winning promotion from League Two.
Jones has won just four of his 34 games and they suffered a 1-0 defeat at home night, which makes them three points adrift at the bottom.
Regardless of their start to the campaign, Jones insists he will attempt to succeed in the club.
He said on Thursday:After the game on Tuesday there has been a lot of emotion and I wear my heart on my sleeve. I didnt want to come out and say the same things that I have.
I speak to the owners all of the time and theyre excellent. They understand the work I do and I am a fighter. They have been talked to by me . I understand they are completely behind me and want me to succeed. I have to repay that faith.
Im a strong, hard-working manager and front things up. For however long Im here I shall do that. Get that first win and it could be a step in the ideal direction
Stoke have a tough test on Saturday when they visit the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea.
Jones believes his players are good enough to escape the situation and remains positive about his sides chances.
He added:We always set out to win games. Well try and find ways be skeptical of what Swansea City offer but also to become more creative at the weekend.
If I felt the gamers were not with me I would not be sat here today. I know they are. Many are going through a difficult time at the moment, however I do not think there is a lack of work-rate.
Everyone must step up regardless of the supervisor. We must start now. Nothing is massively wrong, its merely margins.
My job isnt to be concerned about myself but to get benefits. I have to lead as a manager. I dont shirk responsibility and Im up for the struggle. Since I believe we can turn it about, I dont need to give up here. I understand that the owners patience will not last forever though.
