Rossi Eames and Henry Newman are both keen on netting the club's top job permanently, but are no closer to learning their fate from chairman Tony Kleanthous.

The pair, who have been in charge at The Hive since November 30, have long been odds-on to take over at The Hive on a full-time basis, but both chairman and coaches seem happy enough to continue with their current arrangement so far.

Any uncertainty over their future has not harmed results on the pitch, with Barnet picking up 13 points from the eight games they have been at the helm, and perching on the periphery of the League 2 play-offs.

Newman told the Barnet Borough Times he was keen to continue in the role, but that his and Eames' future had not been directly discussed with Kleanthous.

"The situation is that we're two employees of the football club," he said. "The transfer targets we've formed are under our instruction, and we're just getting on with our jobs.

"We're not considering it as interim or permanent. We've been at the club for a significant amount of time. I'm enjoying the role and want to stay in it.

"If we are moved we're not just going to get sacked. If we are wanted to stay on as head coaches, we will be happy, or if it's something else, we'll also like that."
