West Ham have claimed manager Alan Curbishley's job is not under threat following their 4-0 defeat to fellow relegation strugglers Charlton.
Curbishley is finding life difficult at Upton Park
Reports suggested Curbishley had been given a deadline to turn round the fortunes of the side languishing second from bottom in the Premiership.
"Alan's future is not in doubt," said a club spokesman.
"Obviously everyone is disappointed with the result, but the chairman remains fully committed to Alan."
Icelandic businessman Eggert Magnusson took over at West Ham earlier this season and initially pledged to keep faith with team boss Alan Pardew.
But he was sacked in December with West Ham third from bottom and shortly afterwards took charge at Charlton.
West Ham have won only once in the Premiership since former Charlton manager Curbishley replaced Pardew.
Their defeat at The Valley has left the East London side six points from safety.
