Hull City boss Phil Brown is feeling better about his job situation after an upturn in results.
There was plenty of speculation that Brown would not survive to the home game against Stoke on November 8 following the return of Adam Pearson as chairman.
But after their 1-1 draw at Manchester City, Brown said: "We are on a bit of a run but there is still a long way to go.
"We have had a massive change. The boss man (chairman) has changed.
"Normally that causes a bit of disruption on the field because people want to know which direction the club is going in and what is round the corner.
"But the response of the players is why I am still sat here as Hull City manager.
"Now we are putting our best foot forward with the ball. It is what I have always wanted.
"We are expressing ourselves a bit more than we were before Adam Pearson came to the club."
