Hull chairman Pearson: We won't jump too early over Brown

Hull City chairman Adam Pearson says there'll be no hair-trigger decisions about manager Phil Brown.

Brown led Hull to victory over Stoke yesterday and before the game Pearson assured the manager of his support.

"Sometimes, chairmen and boards do jump too early," said Pearson.

"In that respect, home crowds can play a huge part in deciding when it is right for a manager to go.

"There are some people calling for Phil to go, but I think he has earned the right to some support.

"He helped me by keeping this club in the Championship and he helped the current owner Russell Bartlett by getting it into the Premier League.

"There is an element of loyalty. But if we don't start winning games soon it will be a self-fulfilling prophecy."
