Eastleigh caretaker manager Chris Todd says victory in his first game in charge has whetted his appetite to take the job on full-time.
"I feel I've got something to offer. If the club want me to be manager, I'd love it," Todd told BBC Radio Solent.
The National League club are currently inviting applications for the job.
Todd, a former Swansea, Exeter and Torquay defender, continued: "That moment of winning your first game was up there with anything in my career.
"It was the biggest buzz ever, even better than scoring. It's always been my desire to manage a football club, but we'll see what happens over the coming days."
Captain Ben Strevens says the players are backing caretaker Todd to take charge permanently.
"We're fully behind thinking he can take this team and club on," he said.
"If we're completely honest, we want him to get the job. I don't think there's anyone better placed to take it on."
