Lincoln City caretaker manager Grant Brown has said he will consider whether to apply for the top job after the club's next two games.
Grant, who is in his third spell as caretaker boss, said he has not applied to become David Holdsworth's successor but admitted he was more prepared to lead the club than he has been in the past.
Speaking at a press conference today he said: "We'll deal with the next two games – we've got a big game on Saturday against Barrow and if that goes right then an even bigger game on Tuesday against Mansfield.
"But then we'll think about it after that.
"My focus is just getting the boys right for the next two games."
Brown, who took temporary charge after Holdsworth's exit on Sunday, is confident about his knowledge of the squad's strengths and weaknesses.
"I know them pretty much inside out, but sometimes they get motivated by a fresh voice," he said.
"I'm a bit more relaxed, certainly than the first time, about it.
"I'm a lot more knowledgeable too.
"Certainly I've got a good insight with the players.
"I know what they are about and what makes them tick, so hopefully we'll get a good response on Saturday."
However, he remained coy when asked if he felt ready to take over the Imps full time.
"We'll see how the next two games go, see what the response from the players is and then assess it," he said.
