Certainly Brown's own position does not appear under immediate threat given he was on the verge of being sacked when new chairman Adam Pearson was installed earlier this month.
But a four-game unbeaten run that has yielded eight points has taken the Tigers four points clear of the drop zone, with Brown admitting he probably would not still be in a job had it not been for the response of his players.
"I have had nothing but support from the changing room," he said.
"A change of chairman always causes problems in terms of which direction the club is going in and what is round the corner.
"Change in football causes anxiety. But the response of the players is why I am still sat here as Hull City manager."
