Ian Holloway says Queens Park Rangers can give him "grief" on the back of six-straight defeats, which have left the club just above the relegation zone.
Safety looked assured a month ago, but with two games to play, they are in danger of being relegated if they lose both and other results go against them.
A point could be good enough on Saturday against Nottingham Forest, depending on how Blackburn Rovers do.
And Holloway understands the fans' frustrations from the past few weeks, especially the local derby defeat last weekend at Brentford.
"The fans are upset and so am I. The fans can give me some grief, I would expect it," he said.
"They obviously think we're not going to stay up, do they? Good job I'm not thinking like that.
"Seriously, when we were in administration I didn't believe we were going to do go down, but we did.
"A lot of people blamed me when I didn't take them up as champions, and they definitely blamed me when I didn't get them up through the play-offs.
"In three years, I put them back where they were on half the budget they were on before. It's called management.
"I have got 900 games. Was the Brentford one my favourite one? Probably not.
"All I would suggest is anybody who is a real QPR fan, take that defeat on the chin and dignity, and we have to come together to beat Forest at home."
