Little determined to ride storm

Wrexham manager Brian Little
Little takes responsibility but is disappointed by his team

Manager Brian Little insisted that he is the man to lead Wrexham forward as pressure mounted after the 3-0 loss to Rushden & Diamonds at the Racecourse.

"My job is to turn things around," said Little, whose side have slipped to 13th in the Blue Square Premier after four defeats in their last five games.

"I'm here and I want to be here, I'm trying to do my best.

"But if it's not good enough and people don't want me I've no intention of making their lives a misery."

Little says the fans have the right to criticise, but he was upset by some of the more personal abuse directed towards him by supporters.

"We can't expect to be where we are and not have criticism," Little told BBC Sport Wales.

"Abuse is different, but I understand where we are and that is going to happen.

"It was a poor evening all round, all three goals we conceded were down to defensive mistakes.

"Being 2-0 down at half-time at home is harder than when you're away, especially in the current climate where we're not going well."

Although determined to accept responsibility, Little said that he felt let down by his players.

"We all need to take a step back, look at it, work hard and do better," said the Dragons boss.

"It's hard to believe that this is the same group of players who have won games for us this season.

"It's disappointing that the team is not reflecting what we want to do, but I take full responsibility for that.

"I'm here until the day that someone gets hold of me, has a little chat and says that things are not right."
