Iain Dowie will not discuss his long-term managerial future at Hull with chairman Adam Pearson until the end of the season. The former Crystal Palace and Coventry boss was brought in for the final nine games following the sacking of Phil Brown two weeks ago.
The Tigers are now level on points with 17th-placed West Ham having played a game fewer and Pearson this week hailed the transformation under Dowie.
But the manager is keeping his focus on the pitch, saying: "I don't think we'd do that (discuss the future) yet.
"When we came here, I knew exactly what the remit was. I've got seven games to go. Come the weekend after the season finishes, then we'll get to it.
"All that matters is that Hull are somehow in the Premier League, and that's the focus."
