Darlington caretaker-boss Craig Liddle says he has not yet considered whether he wants the job on a full-time basis.

Head of youth development Liddle has temporarily replaced Mark Cooper, who left the club on Monday.

But Liddle, who played more than 300 games for the Quakers, said his focus was solely on Saturday's FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie with Hinckley.

"There are so many things going on at the club I haven't had time to think about it," Liddle told BBC Tees Sport.

The 40-year-old is in his third spell in caretaker charge but the club hope to appoint a new manager before the Blue Square Bet Premier game with AFC Telford United on Saturday, 5 November.

Liddle added: "I've been asked to a do a job and I'm quite looking forward to it.

"I've had a brief chat with the chairman but nothing has been decided just yet. We'll get this game out of the way and hopefully that will give us a little bit of breathing space."

The Quakers are 14th in the table after 18 games, 11 points behind Cambridge in the final play-off spot.
