ANTONY Sweeeney is expected to be in interim charge of Hartlepool United for Tuesday's FA Cup replay with Wycombe Wanderers as their search for a new manager goes on. 

Reports over Andy Woodman's imminent move to Hartlepool United were quashed late last night with both Hartlepool and Bromley denying any contact had been made over striking a deal to bring the former Newcaslte United goalkeeping coach to Victoria Park. 

The clubs have dismissed the move as pure speculation and Pools will continue to take their time in searching for a replacement in Dave Challinor. 

Sweeney has won one and drawn one of his two games in temporary charge of Pools but will lead the side out against Newport County this evening for his first League Two game. While he is in the dugout on an interim basis, he has been one of the bookmakers favourites to take the job on a permanent basis. 

It's expected that the 38-year-old will remain in the dugout for next Tuesday's trip to League One Wycombe Wanderers where Pools will compete in an FA Cup replay for a place in the second round of the competition.
