Norwich City boss Nigel Worthington has reiterated that he is not feeling the pressure at Carrow Road.
Following a slump in form, The Canaries' owners appeared to issue an ultimatum to Worthington to bring about an improvement in performances in the next two games.
Worthington's side host Burnley, live on Sky Sports 1 on Sunday, with three points seeming to be a necessity.
But the former Northern Ireland international is trying to distance himself from any criticism to focus on the immediate task in hand.
"My situation hasn't changed from last week, last year," Worthington told Sky Sports News.
"It's the next game, I'll be focused on that. I'm looking to win that game.
"I think the biggest thing for me is for the players just to go and perform for themselves at the level they can perform at."
Robert Earnshaw, who has scored seven goals this season, admits the players will do all they can to help the manager.
"As a dressing room we think about the results and how we can get better, that's what we're doing," said Earnshaw.
"We have to play better and better every week."
Meanwhile, Worthington has shrugged off the impact of the training ground spat between Norwich team-mates Dickson Etuhu and Youssef Safri.
He told the Pink 'Un: "It's part and parcel of football. I've seen it many times and been involved in it a few times myself.
"When you get a small group of people in a close-knit scenario for nine to 10 months in a season, these spats are going to happen.
"It finished up as handbags, to be fair. It didn't take anything away from anything we were trying to do. They've had a clout at each other, now let's get on with it."
