Newport County manager Jimmy Dack says he will decide at the end of the season whether he wants to stay on at the club.

Dack, previously assistant to Justin Edinburgh, has been put in charge for the rest of the campaign.

Edinburgh moved to League One Gillingham and has said Dack could join him in the summer.

"I'll look at it until the end of the season and see if I enjoy the job, results pending," Dack said.

"I've always been a a number two and this is all new to me. But no one knows this group of players better than me.

"Without the players you've got nothing and they've supported what I'm trying to do."

Dack insists the League One play-offs are achievable despite a poor run of form which has seen the Exiles drop to eighth.

Newport have lost two, drawn one and won one of their four matches since Edinburgh's departure to Gillingham.

"It's time to dust ourselves down and get going again," Dack added.

"I've told them (the players) we're all playing for our futures. We've got 14 cup finals with nothing to lose.

"We probably need to win half of them, which is a tall order but achievable.

Midfielder Andy Sandell is available after suspension for Saturday's trip to leaders Burton Albion.

County hope Kevin Feely will be fit after the defender missed some training sessions because of tonsilitis.
