Barnsley owner and chairman Patrick Cryne is not convinced manager Simon Davey is the right man to take the club forward.
A section of fans have called for Davey to be sacked after the Tykes escaped relegation for the third successive season and the manager's future will be decided at a meeting with Cryne within the next fortnight.
"He has to make a persuasive case to me why he should stay in charge," Cryne told BBC Radio Sheffield.
"He then needs to take that case out and explain it to the wider fan base. I want to hear more about what his plans are for Barnsley Football Club.
"That will be a key issue in our discussions, and whether he's got that ability to build a rapport with our fans."
