Wolves manager Terry Connor has questioned whether another man would have been able to improve on his record in charge.
Leeds-born Connor was the surprise choice of the Molineux board in the wake of Mick McCarthy's sacking.
Connor guided Wolves to a 2-2 draw at Newcastle in his first game, although they have lost their subsequent games against Fulham and Blackburn without scoring.
The 49-year-old knows there are no easy games in England's top flight and is unsure whether anyone else could do a better job than himself.
Connor defended his record, saying: "This is what happens if you are in a tough league like the Premier League.
"Every game is very difficult, hard whether you are at home or away.
"It is difficult to gather those points, so I'm not sure if we had got a new manager whether he would have had more success than I have had."
Asked if he thought the supporters would stick with him, Connor said: "You will have to ask the fans that.
"I'm sure everyone knows that I'm here 24/7, working as hard as I can for the good of the football club.
"That is all I can do, and I will leave the judgments to other people.
"I think it is a great opportunity for me, I really do. I knew how difficult it would be, but we have all stuck together.
"All we are trying to do is be competitive over the 38 games. If we are, and we have enough points come May 13, then we will all be happy and deem it a successful season."
