Notts County are right to take time deciding on next boss, says caretaker Chris Kiwomya
NOTTS County are right to take their time to decide on their next boss, says caretaker-manager Chris Kiwomya.
The Magpies sacked Keith Curle 13 days ago and Kiwomya will take charge of his third game at Walsall in League One today (3pm).
He is still in the dark about whether the club are ready to give him the top job at Meadow Lane permanently – but he insists that's fine.
"It's right to take your time with these decisions," he said.

"While I'm in charge, and for however many games it is, I will give my best and try and get us as far up the league as possible.
"Sometimes it's better when it's just game to game because then you're only looking at the next one.
"Once you get some good results they might say they will go with you and then you can start building for the future. But I'm taking each game as it comes.
"I want to win the next game – and if we are at our top level we can do that."
The Magpies need to win against the Saddlers because they have slipped down to 11th place in the table and are ten points outside the play-offs with just 15 games of the season left.
Kiwomya says the club has not given up on finishing in the play-offs and going for promotion to the Championship.
"I'm aware of the ten points, but that can be clawed back with a good run," he said.
"For as long as we're near to the top, we've got to be trying to push for the play-offs.
"That is what I think the board and the owner wanted at the beginning of the season and nothing has changed.
"I've come in as caretaker-manager and I've got to try to get the wins to get us in the play-offs, or near them.
"I think if you get near to them, you have always got a chance."
