Walsall manager Dean Smith has rejected any fears over his position at the struggling League One club.

The Saddlers, who avoided relegation on the final day of their last campaign, find themselves in the drop zone once more this term as a result of just one win in their last 16 league games and only three all season.

Smith told the Express & Star: "I know what my job is. My job is to get the players out there and performing to the best of their ability. That doesn't change. Am I in charge of my own future? Yes I think I am. I pick a team every week to try to go out and win."

He added: "It's not where we want to be. I was hoping to continue the momentum but we've faded away. What we have to remember is where we are, who we are and what we stand for.

"I'm fully behind the players because, even on a poor Tuesday night with 10 men against Dagenham, we were the best team for 50 minutes."
