Cape Town - Chippa United head coach Roger Sikhakhane does not believe his job is in jeopardy despite the team's recent struggles in the Absa Premiership.

Club boss Chippa Mpengesi is notoriously trigger-happy and in the past hasn't thought twice about firing coaches.

Chippa have had a lukewarm season so far and are in eighth position in the standings with four wins, one draw and six losses from their opening 11 games..

Sikhakhane believes the campaign has been satisfactory thus far and therefore has no concerns about his job security.

"In football you can sleep in another place and then find yourself waking up in another place the next morning. That is the nature of football as a coach," Sikhakhane told KickOff.

"As long as results are forthcoming then I will know that I am secure. I talk to the chairman and understand his plan and have made each other aware of that we both need to be patient in this process while also factoring in that there will always be challenges along the way.

"There is absolutely no need to press any panic buttons. The plus for us is that we are not out of track with our targets this season. All the same football being football there are no guarantees and as long as I am getting results then I will stay."
