Boston Town chairman Mick Vines is hoping to appoint a new manager by the end of the weekend.
After speaking with a handful of applicants interested in taking over at the DWB Stadium, Mr Vines hopes he can soon welcome a fresh face into the dug-out.
“We’re hoping to have it sorted by Saturday,” he said.
“I don’t think they’ll be in charge of the team this weekend, but hopefully we’ll have some good news.”
The Standard understands that one applicant has managed higher than the UCL Premier, with further interested parties having experience of the Poachers’ current level.
The club have also received interest from ambitious managers from lower levels.
First-teamer Lori Borbely and Darren Bevan have been in charge of the first team on a temporary basis since the resignation of Nathan Collins earlier this season, and look set to continue against Leicester Nirvana (KO 3pm).
