IPSWICH Town fans are still right behind manager Roy Keane - and prepared to put their money on the line.

IPSWICH Town fans are still right behind manager Roy Keane - and prepared to put their money on the line.

Odds on the Blues boss leaving Portman Road this season have contracted in the last week from 3-1 on to 7-4 on.

And supporters' faith in their manager is such that many have taken up 9-4 odds that Keane will stay for the whole campaign.

Mike Triffitt of Sky Bet said: “Picking up a point away at Doncaster on Saturday was a step in the right direction.

“Scoring three goals was an encouraging sign and punters evidently still have faith in Roy Keane as our 9-4 for him to see out the season proved extremely popular.”

These odds have now been reduced to 5-4, with Tranmere's John Barnes and Bolton's Gary Megson other managers also considered by Sky Bet to be under pressure.
