Lyon guarantees he won't be sacked by Dockers


//

Fremantle coach Ross Lyon has boldly declared he won't be defined by results, despite last weekend's 91-point thrashing at the hands of the West Coast Eagles.

Lyon on Wednesday spoke of the team's disappointment at the result, telling reporters: "We want to be a no-excuse footy club ... in this business and all business, you're only as good as your next moment.

"So, our next moment has let ourselves down but you can't be defined by results, good or bad."

Lyon is contracted until the end of 2020 and despite growing fan unrest online, including three petitions calling for him to be sacked, he guarantees he'll still be the Dockers' coach next year.

"My performance dictates I'll be around, we're a rebuilding team, we're seven and eight," Lyon said.

"Three weeks ago, I was being lauded.

"I've never asked for a [contract] extension."

The Dockers will travel to Tasmania tomorrow for a clash against Hawthorn on Saturday.

"We can't get on the plane quick enough really to accept the challenge and aim to redeem our performance and our season," Lyon said.

But history is on the Hawks' side. Fremantle have won just once at Launceston in their last 11 outings.
