Speaking to the EADT, Magilton said he also would not resign said: "Unlike Roy Keane I am not going to walk away. I am here long term and have no intention of leaving.

"I have full confidence in my own ability and football is a results business and there is such a thin dividing line. If Jon Walters had scored at Norwich we would have won the game.

"I had a fantastic message of support from Marcus Evans after the defeat at Norwich and I am confident that I have the players behind me.

"There is nothing to suggest that they are not and the staff have been wonderful as they know how upset I get when we lose - particularly against Norwich. The chairman has been outstanding as well.

"We must look to get the best out of the Christmas period and give ourselves a springboard to move on for the rest of the season.

"We have to get Sunday out of our system with a quality performance against a Bristol side that will be expecting a backlash. We mustn't disappoint them."

"My life will not depend on whether we beat Bristol City and then Cardiff on Saturday in this job. At the end of the day it is players that win you games and players that win you promotion. I have every faith in mine."
