Marty Quinn admits time is running out for him in his battle to get Glenavon off the bottom of the Premiership.
The Mourneview Park manager says the club's next two matches against Lisburn Distillery and Donegal Celtic could decide his fate.
"I am up for the challenge but how long will you be allowed to continue?" he said after the 2-0 defeat at Crusaders.
"The next two league games are massive for me personally and for the club in general. I am very aware of that."
Quinn described Glenavon's performance at Seaview on Saturday as abysmal.
"I am down at the moment and have had some strong words with the players," he admitted.
"Sometimes I wonder do they care enough, do they hurt enough. I wonder about that sometimes because when I look at the display at Crusaders I am embarrassed and ashamed."
Glenavon, with just one Premiership win this season, are four points behind Dungannon and five behind two-from-bottom Carrick.
However, boss Quinn added defiantly: "We will not finish in the bottom two - that I am sure.
"I am not panicking too much. I believe we can still turn things around."
