Sunderland Manager David Moyes has dismissed reports that he has one game to save his job following the Black Cats worst start to a Premier League season.

Moyes takes his side to Bournemouth on Saturday looking for their first league win, but there have been reports that should the Black Cats lose, Moyes will be sacked.

However the Sunderland Manager told the media today there was no truth in such reports and that he, Chairman Ellis Short and Chief Executive Martin Bain all understand the job that is needed at the club.

I think when you're at the bottom and you're losing games that's what is going to happen and that's the world of football management. You expect that, that's fine it comes with the territory really and you would expect it because we're not winning enough games." "Ellis is very good, Martin Bain's very good, we understand the job we've got to do here and as we said right at the start, it's not short term that's for sure." >
