Chris Coleman is confident of surviving as Fulham boss despite a poor run of results and a management cull from chairman Mohamed Al-Fayed.

Craven Cottage boss Coleman has told pals he does not fear the axe after three straight defeats and with games against Liverpool and Chelsea to come this week.

Al-Fayed last week axed football business director Lee Hoos and finance chief Andy Ambler in a cost-cutting spree, but the club quickly clarified that there would be no changes to the management of their playing staff.
