Hull City chairman Adam Pearson says he's returned to the club with the full intention of supporting underfire manager Phil Brown.
Hull are 18th in the table and have won just three times in their last 33 games in the competition stretching back to last December.
Brown has been assured he will still be in charge for this weekend's home clash against Stoke but has been given no long-term guarantees.
Pearson, who enjoyed a successful spell at Hull from 2001-07 and appointed Brown in December 2006, told the club's website, hullcityafc.net: "I'm desperate for Phil to win some games and then all this conjecture can go away.
"He is definitely the manager of this club and he's got a big game against Stoke. But we need wins, we need results.
"He knows that and I know that but nothing would give me greater pleasure than for us to get a win on Sunday."
