Swindon striker Elliot Benyon is confident that Danny Wilson is the right man to turn the club's fortunes around.
The Robins have struggled to emulate last season's success when they missed out on promotion to the Championship after losing 1-0 to Millwall in the play-off final.
With just 31 points on the board from as many games this season, and just one win in their last 12, pressure is starting to mount on Wilson's shoulders.
However, Benyon, who joined on deadline day from Torquay, believes that the former Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday boss has the full support of the players.
"There is always a bit of pressure on the manager if the team struggles near the bottom end of the table, but I'm sure that he won't be worried about that," Benyon told skysports.com.
"He is a fantastic manager and I'm sure that in a couple of weeks it will all be forgotten after we start climbing the table again.
"The manager has high ambitions and we were unlucky on Saturday not to come away with a point against one of the teams flying high in the league, so I'm sure that in a couple of weeks' time we can be straight back up the league if we get a few wins on the board."
