ROY Keane insists that whether or not he keeps his job is “unimportant,” following today’s 1-0 home defeat to Nottingham Forest.

Town are now just three points clear of the relegation zone, following their 10th defeat in their last 14 league games.

Damien Delaney’s comical own goal, in first-half stoppage time, was enough to hand Forest only their third league win on the road since last January.

And to make matters worse for Town, midfielder Grant Leadbitter was sent off in injury-time for a reckless challenge on Paul Anderson and so now faces a three-match suspension.

“My job is not important, what we have to do is get the best out of this football club. It’s not about me, the club is bigger.

“I’m doing my best, but if the best is not good enough, then I will pay the consequences.”

And Keane had no news on any possible new signings during this month’s transfer window.

“I’ve been keen to strengthen over the last 16 months, so a few days won’t make a difference. I won’t be on the phone tonight,” explained Keane.

“I don’t think it was a cruel way (own goal) to lose a football match, because a lot happens before the goal goes in.

“Let’s have no pity-parties tonight.”
