Hibernian manager Colin Calderwood insists he will not walk away from the fight of turning around the club's season.
The former Nottingham Forest boss has replaced John Hughes in charge at Easter Road, however, their indifferent campaign has continued.
Hibs sunk to a new low earlier this week when the SPL side suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat to Ayr in their Scottish Cup replay.
Calderwood sees his task at Hibs as just another challenge and is more determined then ever to help pick the club up from the canvas.
"It's made me really more determined," he said on the club's struggles.
"I enjoy the football club and I've really enjoyed the freshness and what it's brought to me as an individual in terms of new challenges.
"This is just another challenge. I want to get this right.
"We're a long way from being right, but it's never entered my head really."
Meanwhile, the Hibs boss has conceded an interest in Norwich's Stephen Hughes, but admits the situation is out of his hands.
The former Motherwell midfielder has barely featured for The Canaries this term although Calderwood is taking nothing for granted.
"I'll buy and I'll bring in the right player at the right price," he continued.
"Stephen's got a good record playing up here and it's easy for someone like him to settle in, but he's contracted to another club."
