Scott Parker has backed Martin Jol to ride out the storm at Craven Cottage after the manager confronted angry Fulham fans on Saturday.
The Fulham boss faced calls for him to leave from sections of the Whites crowd after Saturday's 1-1 draw with West Brom.
Gareth McAuley's injury-time leveller infuriated the home fans and left Fulham in the bottom half of the Premier League table with one win from their opening four games.
However, Cottagers midfielder Parker believes 'small steps' are needed in order for the club to progress and says Jol won't crumble under pressure because he puts enough of it on himself.
He said: "I think, like anyone, the manager puts pressure on himself. We all do really. We all want to get the results and we're striving to get them.
"I'm sure if we carry on the way we're going and we keep improving [we'll be okay]. There's vast improvements week in, week out. Hopefully, if we keep taking it in small steps, the results will come."
