Personally on my behalf I’m obviously going to remain standing because my beliefs don’t change, whether it’s the Championship, Premier League or the Conference.
“I still believe in what I believe in and I will continue to do so. In terms of making a difference I’ll do what I think I need to do in the background.
“Whether the players are going to remain to do what they want to do as well, I stand by [that]. I’m sure the club and my family are backing me all the way.”
