Chairman Trevor Bull is still not putting a timescale on the process because he wants the selection to be 100% right.

In the meantime, he is very happy with interim boss Steve Roberts, who took charge of his first game on Saturday, overseeing a 1-0 defeat at Buxton.

Bull said: "The deadline to apply has now passed and we will now thoroughly go through the list of applicants.

"We have to reduce it to a shortlist and then take things from there.

"It doesn't matter how long it takes, as long as we get the appointment right.

"At the moment we have a good guy in Steve Roberts at the helm.

"We were impressed by how things went on Saturday, the players put in a shift and Steve put his stamp on it by changing a few things around.

"Now we are looking forward to Saturday's home game against Lancaster City, hopefully we'll have a big turn-out of fans down there to cheer us on."
