GAINSBOROUGH TRINITY chairman Richard Kane has given manager Dominic Roma a vote of confidence and has backed the boss to steer the club away from relegation trouble.
Former Sheffield United defender Roma is in his first full season as a manager and his Trinity side are currently one point and one place above the relegation zone.
Gainsborough have lost four of their last five National League North games, prompting some supporters to ask for a change in the dugout.
Chairman Kane, however, says that no drastic decisions will be made and has backed Roma to turn things around ahead of the Boxing Day and New Year’s Day double-header against Lincolnshire rivals Boston United.
“I have been contacted by a one or two supporters who believe we should change the manager and even some of the players, but I can tell you that the manager will be staying here,” Kane told Lincolnshire Live.
“If we were halfway through the second year of the manager’s reign then I would understand the supporters’ frustration and maybe there would be something to think about.
“But here we are halfway through his first season and there are going to be ups and downs. We are building something here, it is an ongoing project and it won’t be done in one season.
“Results will pick up, I am sure of it, because I think Dom is working very hard and I like what he is doing. We are certainly playing better football.”
