David Moyes insists the West Ham board are continuing to back him despite the club’s dreadful form.
The Hammers have been in dire straits in recent weeks and have lost all of their last five Premier League games, culminating in the 2-0 loss to Brentford.
That game has left the club in 17th position in the table, only clear of the relegation zone based on goal difference.
A defeat to Leeds United in midweek, plus one club ending the Nottingham Forest v Southampton game as victors, would see the Irons drop into the bottom three.
But Moyes insists the club’s powerbrokers are right behind him and are continuing to support him as he bids to turn the form around.
Speaking to reporters ahead of the Leeds game, as per the club’s official website, he said: “The Board have been right behind me, which is really good. They’ve been very supportive and backing me.
“I think West Ham supporters have been incredibly supportive. They’ve seen what’s gone on here the last three years and they’re desperate for us to do well.”
It remains to be seen what may happen if West Ham lose to Leeds and are then beaten by Brentford in the FA Cup this weekend.
