Barrow have confirmed they will make a decision on their new manager within the next 72 hours.
Managing director Andrew Casson has written to fans providing an update of the club’s search for Paul Cox replacement.
Micky Moore is temporary charge and wants the job but Saturday’s 1-1 draw with bottom club Torquay United cast doubt over his selection.
Casson took to the club’s website to clarify some points.
“We expect to make a decision on the manager in the next 72 hours,” he said.

“Paul Ogden has not left the club. That was a gross exaggeration by someone not within the football club. I spoke with Paul last week on two occasions about his plans for developing the squad and who he will be watching the next couple of weeks.
“Adi Yussuf did not quit on the team on Saturday. He has been playing through quite a bit of hamstring tightness which was a result of a limited pre-season. He was putting it all on the line to put on the shirt but unfortunately he has reached the limit of that exertion. He probably needs a couple weeks of rehab to get himself 100% fit and raring to go again.
“We expect to have several new faces come through the door over the next two weeks, as we look to bolster an injury decimated squad. The additions will likely be a front line striker, a physical midfielder and a versatile defender, depending on the status of Moussa and Jack who both picked up injuries on Saturday.
“We are also looking to add a seasoned Strength and Conditioning coach, something we have lacked since taking over the club. This is a critical role in football today and one that should produce immediate results in tracking player fitness and improving it throughout the season.”
