Port Vale manager Neil Aspin says he has considered his future and decided to stay at the club.
Aspin admitted he was considering his options this week but he told the media: “After giving things a lot of thought following the Lincoln game, I’ve decided that I’d like to stay at the club and fight for my job.
For this moment in time, I want to stay and fight for it, but it will all be about how the players perform over the next few weeks…
“I fully accept that results have been disappointing of late and we certainly haven’t made the progress that I was hoping for, but it was an extremely difficult job that I walked into.
“That’s proven to be the case and it will take time to turn things around, but my own fate won’t be decided by people who want to boo me and abuse me.
“My role will be decided by the players, so my job is in their hands. They need to show the same fight, determination and desire that they displayed in Tuesday’s game at Lincoln where I thought they were excellent.
“The chairman has also been very supportive during this tough period, but I accept that results must improve or it will put him under pressure to make a change.
“For this moment in time, I want to stay and fight for it, but it will all be about how the players perform over the next few weeks.”
