BOSS Jonathan Woodgate insisted he had not as yet discussed his future with Cherries’ hierarchy and insisted: “I’m not thinking about what the future holds at the minute.”

The former England centre-back has done an impressive job in guiding the Dorset club to the Championship play-off places, with two games of their season remaining.

Woodgate came in as a first-team coach under Jason Tindall back in February.

He found himself thrust into the hotseat on an interim basis after just three days, following Tindall’s sacking.

Woodgate impressed Cherries’ board and accepted a deal as head coach until the end of the season – a run of seven straight league wins guaranteed the south coast side a spot in the play-offs.

The Nunthorpe-born coach has continually been asked about his future in press conferences, with Woodgate stating his focus remained on Cherries’ next game.

Asked by the Daily Echo whether his future would now be decided after the play-offs, Woodgate said: “I don’t know, I couldn’t answer that question. I’ve got a contract until the end of the season and that’s where I am.

“Hopefully we get to the play-off final and we’ll see what happens after that. That’s as far as I know and that is me being totally honest with you.

“I always speak to Neill (Blake), I always speak to Richard (Hughes) but those conversations haven’t come up as of yet.

“I am just getting the team ready for every single game that we’ve got. The next one is Wycombe.

“I’m not thinking about what the future holds at the minute. I am just trying to do as well as I can for the football club.

“We’ve got until the end of May, hopefully, if we get into the play-off final and let’s see.

“All I want to do is get on with the job and win as many football matches as I can.”

Cherries will meet either Brentford, Barnsley or Swansea in the play-off semi-final first leg on May 17.

“I think if you’d have asked any Bournemouth fan and said with two games to go you would have found yourselves in the play-offs, they wouldn’t have believed it,” said Woodgate.

“It has been tough at times but when push came to shove, we’ve got there with two games to go.

“I think that’s important to get that message across. We have done ever so well up to now.

“That’s one objective fulfilled – now we’ve got others to do and it’s the big one at the end of it.”
