Sam Allardyce has brushed off reports that he has two games to save his job as Blackburn Rovers manager.
The Ewood Park outfit have wailed to win any of their last eight games in all competitions and head into Thursday's Carling Cup semi-final first leg meeting with Aston Villa bereft of confidence following their 4-1 thrashing by Manchester City on Monday.
Rovers have not won a game since they edged out Chelsea on penalties on December 2 to book their place in the last four of the League Cup.
But despite suggestions that he is fighting to save his job, Allardyce claims he is not feeling any additional pressure.
"You are always going to get rumours in the the Premier League. Never a day goes by without a positive or a negative story," he said.
"You are bound to get some negative scenarios going around when you have not won in a while.
"You just get on with your job and that is what I will do. I have no great concerns at all."
