Danny Simpson has called on Blackburn's underperforming squad to get behind manager Paul Ince.
The Rovers boss has found himself under mounting pressure of late, with the club having slipped into the Premier League relegation zone on the back of a 10-game winless run.
Speculation has suggested that crisis talks are imminent at Ewood Park, although these reports have been vehemently denied.
There can be no denying, though, that the precarious position the club currently find themselves in is giving cause for concern.
With that in mind, on-loan full-back Simpson believes it is time the players began fulfilling their potential and helped to ease the burden on their manager's back.
"Everyone is still keeping each other together inside the club, we have to stick together," he told the Lancashire Telegraph.
"You can't ask for any more. We are all playing for ourselves, the fans and the gaffer. We still believe in him and we need the fans around the town to have belief in him.
"The performances have been decent but it is just not going for us at the moment. I am sure and the lads are sure once we get a win, we will go on an unbeaten run for a long time.
"We just need that win to get the confidence going."
Sam Allardyce and Graeme Souness have been touted as possible replacements for Ince, should the former England international lose his job.
Veteran Rovers midfielder Tugay has even been mentioned, with Simpson admitting that the Turkish star has been on the end of some playful banter in the wake of those rumours.
"All the stuff that has been written in the papers we need to put it out of our heads. We are the ones on the pitch not the gaffer," he added.
"We saw Tugay and said 'you alright gaffer?' It is the only way you can deal with it, by making a joke of it.
"The papers have to go over your head. You expect it but as professional footballers we have to ignore it.
"We can't believe everything we read and nor should the fans. Come Saturday afternoon we need to be performing, not just for ourselves and for the club but for the gaffer."
