Under-pressure Carlton coach Mick Malthouse believes he still has the support of the Blues board despite his side’s horror start to 2015.

Carlton currently sits bottom of the AFL ladder after losing six of its opening seven games, leaving Malthouse’s future open to speculation.
However the former West Coast and Collingwood mentor remains defiant, telling 5AA Radio that he still had the support of the Blues hierarchy.
“It’s a known fact that football clubs sometimes fragment,” Malthouse is quoted as saying by AAP.
“Right now, I feel as if I have got the support of Steven (Trigg) and the board to go until the end of the year.
“If that changes, well, it changes.”
Carlton were on the end of a 78-point thrashing by the Greater Western Sydney Giants on Saturday and face a tough test against Geelong on Friday at Etihad Stadium.
The Cats are coming off a big loss of their own, going down by 43 points against premiership contenders Sydney last week.
However, Geelong are the raging favourites to defeat a Carlton side extremely low on confidence.
