Cambridge have confirmed interim boss Bary Corr will remain in charge for Saturday’s trip to Wanderers.

Corr took charge following Neil Harris’ return to Millwall. Harris had been in the dugout at the Abbey Stadium against Bolton less than 24 hours before the move was confirmed.

Cambridge confirmed they have held “preliminary conversations” with potential candidates for the role.

An official statement read: “Since the unexpected departure of Neil Harris last week there have been a number of conversations between owners, board and the senior leadership of the club.

“Everyone is committed to making the right appointment and we are balancing working at pace with a thorough consideration of the different options at this stage of the season.

“(Sporting director) Ben Strang has already had some preliminary conversations with potential candidates and we will keep fans fully updated as and when a decision is made.

"In the meantime, Barry Corr will lead the team for the next two games and we are all very grateful for the positive and professional way that Barry, Kevin (Betsy), all the coaching staff and players have responded over recent days.”

The U’s were beaten 1-0 by Peterborough at the weekend, with Ephron Mason-Clark getting the decisive goal 10 minutes into the second half.

Corr will also be in the dugout when they head to Stevenage on Tuesday night, but the interim boss says he is not planning to apply for the job on a permanent basis.

He told Cambridge Independent: “Nothing has changed really because I made it clear the last time, there is no question I want to be a manager one day but I also know that there is a process to doing that.

“I want to be ready, that time will happen soon. I am not the most patient guy in the world but I understand there is a process to everything.

“I am actively educating myself, I am doing loads that I suppose people don’t know about so one day (it will happen). But at the moment, I am happy where I am at and I am gaining experience.

“Ultimately, I do want to do it myself but it will be the same this time – I’m not speaking to the club and saying I want to be a potential candidate.

“I know the situation the club is in and I know they will want to bring in experience, and that is fine.”
