Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood is asking no favours from the board.
Sherwood was given an 18-month contract in December but is aware there is scepticism about whether he is the long-term answer.
"It's up to me to prove that I can be," he said. "I'm untried at management and you have to earn the right.
"It's like a player going in and playing a couple of games well, it doesn't mean that he's made it. He has to keep his feet on the floor and realise he has to do it on a consistent basis, and that's what I need to do.
"Obviously, the objective of the club is to finish in the top four and we know how difficult that will be."
