BRIAN FLYNN is happy to remain in temporary charge of Wrexham for Saturday's trip to Woking but admits the club need to appoint a new manager "pretty quickly".

Bryan Hughes was sacked last Wednesday and Flynn, his assistant who previously enjoyed a successful 12 year stint as Reds boss, was appointed interim manager for two games.

Wrexham beat Ebbsfleet United 1-0 at the weekend to climb out of the National League relegation zone and end an eight-game winless run, but the Reds lost 3-1 at Solihull Moors on Tuesday and remain in a perilous position.

The search for Hughes' successor goes on and Dean Keates, another former Racecourse chief, and Connah's Quay Nomads boss Andy Morrison, have been linked with the position.

But Flynn says he will continue to take training this week and expects to be at the helm when Wrexham visit high-flying Woking.

"I would imagine so. Football is full of innuendo and rumours but the probability is I will be with them on Saturday," said Flynn.

"I will be taking training this week, that is what I intend to do.

"This is Wrexham Football Club and whatever they ask me to do, I will do."

But Flynn insists the board of directors need to have a permanent manager in place soon with Wrexham facing a relegation battle if results don't improve and the games coming thick and fast

"This could turn into a drastic situation," said Flynn.

"If it is not solved pretty soon then the team will suffer because they need guidance.

"They need a leader and that is the most important thing.

"Every midweek there is a game in October, it is Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, so it is important things are resolved pretty quickly."

Flynn has no qualms about offering his advice on the sort of manager needed to take Wrexham away from trouble but he is yet to be asked by the board.

"Not at the moment. Everybody was looking forward to the Solihull game, unfortunately we haven't got the result that we wanted," said Flynn.

"I imagine that they are drawing up a plan and that plan will probably be issued to me on Thursday.

"But they need a leader; somebody to lead the club, lead the team, to safe waters at first; you can't at this moment in time start talking about play-offs.

"Safety is the key."

When asked whether he was interested in the job, Flynn said: "I haven't seen a 12 year contract yet!

"A minimum 12 year contract to repeat things that went on in the past.

"I'm sorry but I can't give you any further information on that."

But should somebody else become manager, Flynn is willing to stay at The Racecourse if he is wanted.

"I will do what is expected of me," said Flynn.

"The new manager comes in, who knows what will happen in terms of staffing levels and what the new manager wants.

"I will be guided by the board and obviously the new manager that comes in."

Wrexham found themselves 2-0 down at the break against Solihull but the Reds were on top at the start of the second half and reduced the deficit through top scorer Bobby Grant.

However, Moors scored a third goal to leave Wrexham out of the drop zone on goal difference after 14 games, and Flynn stressed the importance of getting a positive result at Woking.

"We are still in a difficult position," said Flynn.

"At the moment it is not drastic but if things don't change, it can turn into something serious.

"The momentum we had second half encourages me going away to Woking, and we must pick up at least a point there."

Grant scored his fifth goal of the season following a slick passing move, with Flynn admitting the Reds showed just what they are capable of.

"From start to finish I don't think anybody took more than two touches," added Flynn.

"When you move the ball that quickly and you have some good runs, that is exactly what happens and a good finish from Bobby."
