CHRIS Pow­ell in­sists he will still be Hud­der­s­field boss next sea­son.

The 45-year-old took the reins from Mark Robins in Septem­ber and has steered the club away from the rel­e­ga­tion zone to rel­a­tive safety.

A seven-match win­less run came to an end against Ip­swich on Mon­day, but it was thought by some that Pow­ell had grown tired of life at the John Smith’s Sta­dium.

But the for­mer Charl­ton left-back in­tends to re­main in west-York­shire for the fore­see­able fu­ture.

“I am Hud­der­s­field Town manager, I en­joy be­ing Hud­der­s­field Town manager, I have set­tled in the area fine,” he said. “I un­der­stand when things aren’t go­ing great that peo­ple might make sto­ries up.

“I am plan­ning for next year with the chair­man, Dean Hoyle, to make us as strong as we can, make us bet­ter and more con­sis­tent.”
