Bangor City manager Neville Powell has received the backing of his chairman despite the club's disappointing start in the Welsh Premier League.

The Citizens, Welsh champions on three occasions, are yet to win this season and are bottom of the table.

Bangor's 2-0 home defeat to Gap Connah's Quay on Friday was their eighth loss of the current campaign.

"While there are calls for changes I do not feel Neville's term is exhausted," chairman Dilwyn Jones said.

"He has brought, by far, the most successful period in the club's history of which we have all been part of.

"I have cast my die and will not give up on a situation until there is no other choice but to do so. That time has not arrived in my opinion. "

Former Bangor midfielder Powell returned to the club as manager in 2007 after 14 years in charge of Connah's Quay.

During Powell's reign Bangor have won the Welsh Cup three times and were crowned Welsh Premier League champions in 2011.
