Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that the support of the players and City supporters has kept him going.
Speaking to Sky Blue Player, Thorn said: "Well, I love the club and the year started really well but it did get more and more difficult but we will keep going past this year and try and produce players.
"It is great to see a lot of youngsters come through but the most satisfying aspect of the job is, of course, winning. It is great to see my side put in a decent performance as well.
"It can be very difficult to keep that going because expectations don't change even though the club might. My players are giving everything they have is great for me.
"When I look around at the people here and the supporters, that is what keeps you going in the job. I have never known anything like the support we have received this season.
"The supporters and the players have given me everything in every game and that is the most important part.
"Everyone here is working for this football club and whatever has been done off the pitch has been done and it has been up to us to keep the performances coming.
“Managers have told me that I've been through more than they would in ten years but that is the challenge of the job and I'm not giving up.
"If people want to say we haven't been good enough quality wise then fine, but I can't fault the effort and the commitment of everyone here.
"If we are realistic, should we be tailed off already, probably. But these lads here weren't going to let that happen. We were well adrift at one stage but because of the determination, we kept going."
