Crawley Town striker Gary Alexander says the playing squad are in limbo until a new manager is appointed.
Craig Brewster is in caretaker charge of the League One newcomers after Sean O'Driscoll left to become Nottingham Forest boss last month.
"The sooner we get a manager the better," the striker told BBC Sussex.
"We want to know what sort of style we're going to be playing. At the moment we're playing a decent bit of football and mixing it up."
The 32-year-old added: "[Director of football] Steve Coppell and Craig Brewster are doing a good job at the moment and keeping us ticking over.
"We're putting in some good performances in pre-season.
"Sean laid his marker down in two weeks, which shows what a good coach he is. But we can't dwell on that - we've got to move on as a club and move on as players.
"When a new manager comes in, hopefully we'll be ready to go and he can take us on from there.
"The sooner the situation is resolved, the better."
