Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson admitted his side's winless run in the Coca-Cola Championship is "embarrassing" for the club.
Ferguson has masterminded successive promotions at London Road to drag Posh from League Two to the second tier but after the 1-1 draw at Leicester, he finds his side languishing in 21st place in the early table.
He said: "Seven games into the league without a win is embarrassing and I thank our fans for their support as they must be as sick of it as I am."
He added: "There is only so many times you can say that we have played well without winning and it is time for us to play rubbish and win 1-0.
"But now we have Reading at home on Saturday and it is vital we get this first win.
"I am confident we can handle this division but the longer it goes without a win people will stop listening to me."
