Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood insisted that the club will remain in the Premier League despite another loss on Saturday.
Villa slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Swansea at home despite Jordan Ayew giving them the lead just after the hour mark, as his brother Andre Ayew struck late on to edge Sherwood closer to the brink of being sacked.
The visitors enjoyed more possession and had more attempts at goal, but their struggling rivals will feel aggrieved not to have at least earned a point.
According to the Birmingham Mail, the Villa boss will discover his fate within 48 hours as he watched on as his side fell to their sixth straight loss.
That poor run of form ensures that they remain in the bottom three having collected just four points from their 10 games so far this season.
With a trip to Tottenham next weekend, it remains to be seen whether or not Sherwood is still in charge of the club, but he has not wavered in his belief that he can turn things around and ensure that they avoid the drop.
Meanwhile, it could get worse for him as if Sunderland beat Newcastle in the Wear-Tyne derby on Sunday, they could end the weekend at the bottom of the table.
