Tilson's Imps have won only twice in the Blue Square Bet Premier

Lincoln City manager Steve Tilson insists he still has the support of chairman Bob Dorrian and the board of directors despite the Imps' poor form.

They are in the bottom four in the Blue Square Bet Premier, having won only twice in 12 games this season.

"If I hadn't I think I'd be gone by now," Tilson told BBC Lincolnshire.

"I still believe in myself and in the players, we've got a fantastic spirit and and while I'm in charge I'll do my best to get us out of this situation."

Tilson added: "The chairman hasn't said anything to me but I'll do what I've got to do.

"I still believe in myself, I've been a winner all my life and that's never going to change."

City face a crucial match at home to bottom side Bath City at Sincil Bank on Saturday.

"If we get the first goal we can build on it," said Tilson. "But every game is a tight one.

"I don't think there's been a game where we can say we've won really convincingly or lost convincingly.

"We're not far away, but not far away and getting a result are two completely different things."
