Joint caretaker-manager Tristan Lewis has confirmed he doesn’t want the Welling United job long-term.

The Wings went down 1-0 to Wealdstone at home on Saturday, making it only two wins in their last seven Vanarama National League South games.

Welling are seven points above the drop in 16th place.

Lewis and Harry Wheeler were appointed on an interim basis at the start of January following Jamie Day’s departure, and now the former has confirmed he doesn’t want the job permanently.

Lewis told the club’s website: “I’ve been in this situation before at the bottom of the league and I’ve got some experience of what it takes to get out of it.

“Have I come in here to be the first team manager long-term? No. Mark [Goldberg, chairman] knows I don’t want the job long-term, and Harry knows that.

“My job is slightly different in looking at the academy stuff and building that up but ultimately in the short term we’re all here to get points. So if a change is made I’ll be supportive of whatever is right for the club.

“I think we all just need to do our best to get enough points to stay up.”
