Newcastle chief executive Chris Mort insists the board are fully behind manager Kevin Keegan as he bids to turn around the team´s fortunes.

The Magpies have not won in seven matches since Keegan returned for a second spell at St James´ Park and are just three points above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone, but Mort has no doubt he is the right man for the job.

Mort told BBC Radio Five Live´s Sportsweek programme: "Clearly Kevin wants to turn results around, that´s what he has come in to do. It is disappointing but it will come. Kevin has got the players playing very well and I am sure the results will follow."
