Mark Hughes has two games to save his job as Stoke City manager, talkSPORT understands.
The Potters have lost four of their last five Premier League games and are just two points above the relegation zone.
They have won only four games all season and have their lowest tally of points after 17 games since winning promotion to the top-flight in 2008.
Hughes has come in for heavy criticism in recent weeks and there were angry scenes at Stoke railway station following last weekend's 5-1 loss to Tottenham, with supporters confronting the squad on their return.
talkSPORT has now been told by sources close to the club that the next two games are critical to the manager's future.
Stoke have back-to-back matches at home, against West Ham and West Brom, and if they do not produce positive results then the Welshman is set to be axed.
Hughes has been in charge for four-and-a-half years and guided the club to three ninth-placed finishes in a row.
Chairman Peter Coates insisted this week there is "plenty of time" for Stoke to turn their poor form around, but is understood two more bad results will spell the end for Hughes.
