George Honeyman says the Hull City dressing room remains firmly behind manager Grant McCann.
Honeymanâ€™s return to full fitness has inspired a dramatic turnaround in form from the Tigers, with Saturdayâ€™s 2-1 win over Millwall their fourth Championship win in a row and they'll be looking to make it five at Reading on Saturday.
Victories over Barnsley, Birmingham City, Cardiff City and the Lions have seen the Tigers go from three points adrift of safety to five points clear and lift some of the mounting pressure on boss McCann.

Prior to the 2-0 win at Barnsley prior to the international break, the Tigers suffered five successive defeats as their worsening form saw fans again call for the manager to be dismissed.
Honeyman, who netted his third goal in four games on Saturday, believes the upturn in fortunes over recent weeks is nothing more than McCann deserves.
â€œListen, we won the league with the gaffer last year, we obviously respect him hugely and want to play for him and want to do well for him,â€ the ex-Sunderland man said.
â€œIts football, when results donâ€™t go well, the fans arenâ€™t going to be happy and the role of the manager, they are probably going to take the brunt of it. That maybe isnâ€™t the fairest thing â€“ but thatâ€™s football.
â€œIâ€™m really pleased that we have turned it around for him with a lot of outside noise. He gives us lots of freedom and confidence to go out and play and puts a lot of trust in us.
â€œYou can never ask for much more than that from a gaffer.â€
Last seasonâ€™s player of the year has been the catalyst to the Tigersâ€™ remarkable revival, and says key to their resurgence has been the dressing room getting to grips with the Championship.
â€œFor me personally, I just want to keep giving the lads confidence to go out and perform and do what they want to do,â€ he said.
â€œWe have to keep realising how important the work off the ball is in terms of our shape and our work-rate and then we have to go and express ourselves when we have the ball.
â€œWe are a good team, weâ€™ve got good players and this division isnâ€™t anything to be scared of, which might be easy to say after four wins in a row, but Iâ€™ve been saying it while sitting watching - and thatâ€™s how Iâ€™ve felt in games as well.
â€œObviously we are on a nice curve now weâ€™ve got to keep humble and keep working hard but Iâ€™m confident in this group that this is the start of something that we can really progress with.â€
