Chris Kinnear admits life is tough for him at Crabble right now but he remains convinced Whites can turn their season around, report Kent Online.

Athletic have won just one of their opening 14 National League matches, leaving them next-to-bottom and five points from safety. Their only win was against Havant & Waterlooville on August 14, since when they have taken just three points from a possible 30.

The run has led to speculation about Kinnear’s future at the club but the man himself says he has no plans to walk away.

He said: “People are entitled to their opinions. They (the fans) are disappointed just the same as I am, all I can do while I’m here is work as hard as I can, that goes for all of us, the coaching staff and the players.

“I just keep going until I’m told any different. I don’t feel pressure, it’s tough but I don’t feel any different.

“If you let things get to you, you start making funny decisions.

“I can only do what I’ve done for the last 32 years as a manager, try to get the team right and ready, prepared to get results but things don’t just happen straight away, you can’t just snap your fingers and make things right.”
