Mick McCarthy has claimed he still has the support of the Wolves fans despite their difficult season.
The former Republic of Ireland manager will celebrate five years in charge at Molineux in July and some fans had started to succumb to the view he had gone stale.
It is a view the straight-talking Yorkshireman rejects and, having led the club to the Premier League in 2009, he is determined to preserve their status for a second consecutive term.
And after a run of eight points from the last four games, his sense of belief has been imbued.
"There were a few rumblings early on about me, like 'he's taken them as far as he can' and all that rubbish," said McCarthy.
"But I think that's a small percentage and the biggest percentage is happy with the way the club is run from top to bottom.
"They recognise it's a very stable, consistent club and there's a good spirit throughout.
"It's about belief, understanding, and knowing we've got good players."
