Hawks manager Lee Bradbury has played down rumours linking him with Notts County.

The League One side parted company with manager Chris Kiwomya at the weekend.

Reports since have linked Bradbury to the position.

But the Hawks boss insists he is not considering leaving Westleigh Park.

He also reassured fans he will not allow any speculation to impact on the task of guiding the Hawks up the Skrill South table.

‘I don’t know where that has come from,’ said Bradbury.

‘Obviously I am flattered to be linked with the job but at the moment I have a job to do with the Hawks.

‘I don’t foresee leaving at any time in the near future.

‘The job is to try and get the Hawks up into the next level and that is all that I am focusing on.

‘I won’t allow myself to be side tracked from doing the best I can for the Hawks.

‘I am concentrating on our game at Bath City and getting three points.’

Bradbury has previous Football League management experience with AFC Bournemouth.

He has made a big impression at Hawks since taking charge last season.

Secretary Trevor Brock confirmed Hawks have had no approach for Bradbury.

‘As a club we have heard nothing,’ said Brock.

Former Pompey boss Steve Cotterill is another name to have been linked with Notts County.

He was in charge at Meadow Lane between February and May 2010.

Notts County Chief executive Jim Rodwell has insisted he will not rush to make a new appointment.

Former Nottingham Forest and England midfielder Steve Hodge is in temporary charge.
