Blackpool boss Ian Holloway admits he is tired of rumours that he is ready to leave his post, following the 1-0 defeat to Burnley.
Charlie Austin netted the vital goal at Turf Moor to ensure Burnley will have the bragging rights over the Lancashire rivals for the time being.
Holloway has been linked with the Clarets bitter rivals Blackburn, as they seek to replace Steve Kean.
"I don't want to talk about any speculation. I am fed up of it," Holloway said. "I haven't quartered any of it and I don't need it in my life and neither does anyone else.
"I don't know whether it affected the malaise of my lads at the start of the game but I am sick of it but that's life.
"I have to wonder why we didn't start as brightly as we finished. Overall we did everything but score. We had the lion's share of the possession but we couldn't put the ball in the net.
"We posed more threat in the second half but the Burnley defenders seemed to stop my attackers too easily."
