Kidderminster Harriers chief executive Colin Gordon says the club's search for a new head coach is "very active" and that they have been speaking to a number of shortlisted candidates.

Gordon, 53, has been in temporary charge at the National League club since January and will not carry on in the role beyond the summer.

"Everyone will know in due course," Gordon told BBC Hereford and Worcester.

"We should be trusted to make the right decisions at the right time."

Gordon has already ended speculation that former Harriers boss Steve Burr was in the frame for a potential return to Aggborough, and insisted the relegation-threatened club will take its time before confirming a permanent successor to Dave Hockaday.

"We've been very active - as people expect us to be - and we know what we're doing and where the club's going," he said.

"It's strange that people get hung up on this. We've been on a good run and playing a brand of football the club's not seen in years. They should be thinking 'we're in good hands'

"The people we're talking to at the moment are in work at the moment. That's the reason it's been delayed, because to announce anything now would be unfair to the clubs they're at."

Harriers have won their last two games to keep their slim chance of survival alive but will be relegated if they fail to beat Barrow at Aggborough on Saturday.
