With just two wins from 12 games Alan Irvine has expressed his fears for his job at West Bromwich Albion, the BBC
West Brom lost 3-1 at home to a strikerless Manchester City on Boxing Day to leave them just two points above the relegation zone despite a run of one defeat in six league games prior to this dismal spell.
Individual errors have cost the Baggies in certain games with performances sometimes not reflecting the match result.
Irvine however knows that it is a results business and with such a poor recent record he simply cannot be confident about his position as manager.
He said: “The chairman will make a decision as far as that is concerned.
“I can’t control it. Can I be confident about it? Not necessarily, because I don’t know what the thinking is.”
The appointment of the 56-year-old was met with surprise and scepticism given he has very limited experience managing at this level.
The Scotsman had stints in charge of Preston and Sheffield Wednesday but had spent three years as the head of Everton’s youth academy before taking on the West Brom job.
