Heat's Raftopoulos staying positive

He told BBC Surrey: "I've always stuck by one important rule in coaching: if I felt I didn't have the dressing room, I'd be the first person to walk.

"The guys believe in me and what I'm trying to do. I've also got the support of the owner."

The Zimbabwean added: "There are going to be some fans who aren't happy because of the history of the club and how it's done.

"When the team wins, it's great players. When the team loses, it's a bad coach. That's just how it is.

"I'm sticking to it. I'm staying positive and I want to get the results."
