West Bromwich Albion are expected to stand by manager Pepe Mel for at least one more game.
The Express & Star says the Spaniard will be given one more game at least to make his mark at The Hawthorns after defeat against Manchester United on Saturday marked the seventh winless match of his reign.
Albion head for Swansea on Saturday for the first of four games against clubs in the bottom half of the Premier League - a spell that could make or break their bid for survival.
Mel's team are outside the relegation zone only on goal difference and his early weeks at The Hawthorns have been beset by behind-the-scenes turmoil including concerns from senior players about his communication on the training ground and his preferred style of play.
