Huddersfield 'keeper Matt Glennon admits the Terriers' playing squad are in the dark over the club's managerial vacancy.

Canaries' boss Glenn Roeder publically rubbished reports assistant Lee Clark was poised to succeed Stan Ternent this week.

Roeder insisted Clark is committed to the Canaries' cause after the 36-year-old was believed to be among the potential front runners along with ex-Watford chief Adrian Boothroyd and former Carlisle manager John Ward. Town chairman-elect Dean Hoyle is remaining tight-lipped - but Glennon has backed the new owner-in-waiting to get it right.

"The players haven't got a clue who might be in the running for the job, we don't know any more than anyone else," said Glennon. "There's not a load of talk, but on the odd day the lads will come in to training and somebody will mention that another name has been mentioned on a website or in the papers. I'm waiting for Jose Mourinho to leave Inter - you never know! It doesn't really affect you as a player because you are primarily playing for the club and yourself. I'm sure that whoever eventually comes in will have already seen us play, so you just have to keep putting performances in."

Caretaker boss Gerry Murphy had initially ruled himself out of the running to replace Ternent on a permanent basis but Murphy's impressive unbeaten four match league run was only ended by Orient at the weekend.

"We are very happy with things as they are," said Glennon. "Results are coming, the lads are full of confidence and the team are playing well. With things going as well as they are on the pitch, he can take more time to make his decision."
