Newcastle have confirmed John Carver will remain in charge for the remaining three games of the Premier League season.
The club's released a statement saying that after two days of "frank dialogue", the board, Carver, his players and the staff are fully focused on their "current situation".
The Mags have lost their last eight matches and are just two points above the relegation zone.
The full statement reads:
"Following the result at Leicester City on Saturday, there has been two days of frank dialogue with John Carver and senior players.
The outcome of those discussions is that the board, John Carver, his staff and players are absolutely focused on our current situation and the three hugely-important fixtures that remain this season, two of which are at St. James' Park.
All parties accept responsibility for the current situation but are determined, together, to ensure this Club - your Club - retains its Premier League status.
That is the only focus at this time."
Meanwhile, defender Mike Williamson has denied he deliberately got himself sent off during Saturday's game.
He was shown a second yellow card for crashing into Leicester's Jamie Vardy.
Manager John Carver said he thought Williamson was trying to be dismissed and that it was "an easy way out".
But in a statement, Williamson says "There was absolutely no intent to hurt Jamie or get sent off,"
