IPSWICH Town chief executive Simon Clegg today revealed that there was no immediate pressure on manager Roy Keane.

Even though Town are rock bottom of the Championship, with no wins from their first 10 league games, Clegg remains confident that Keane is the right man to guide the club out of danger, and long-term bring Premier League football back to Portman Road.

'We've had a disappointing start to the season, and I'm not going to shy away from that fact,' admitted Clegg.

'It's not the start that we had wanted, but there is no change in the situation with regards Roy (Keane). Our fans deserve better and want better, but there is no pressure, no additional pressure on Roy.
