O’Neill, talking to BBC Radio Suffolk, stressed that owner Marcus Evans is aware of the concern among fans - Town have lost seven of their last 10 games in all competitions – but isn’t considering making a managerial change.

He added: “He (Evans) understands their frustration – obviously I communicate with him – but he can hear and see things, and see what’s around him, even though supporters aren’t at the stadium there are ways that they have voiced their opinions.

“He’s aware of that and fully supportive of trying to help the football club get back to the better times.”
