KIDDERMINSTER chairman Colin Gordon has chosen to take to the dugout in the wake of Neil MacFarlane's departure this week.

He will remain in the hotseat until the end of the current campaign with the help of senior players Jimmy O'Connor and Russ Penn.

Gordon insists the reason behind the decision is to give the club the time to find the right person for the job.

He explained: "It's all about making sure we don't throw the baby out with the bath water. If you rush to get someone in then often you have to change everything and you have characters who might not fit in with the new manager and suddenly the whole ethos at the club is being changed and that's not what we want.

"Changing everything and forgetting how we want to play and what we want to do would be the road to ruin for us.

"It's about looking for the right person for this club and making sure we do our homework and get the right person in. Hopefully this gives us time to do that."
