Wycombe Wanderers’ FA Cup opponents Brighton are likely to arrive at Adams Park on Saturday without a new manager in place.

Having parted company with former manager Russell Slade on Sunday, Seagulls’ Chairman Tony Bloom says he will not be rushed into appointing a new man.

“It’s so critical to get this decision right that it wouldn’t be right to put a timescale on it,” said Bloom.

This means that Director of Football Martin Hinshelwood looks certain to be in charge of the Seagulls for Saturday’s FA Cup tie against the Chairboys.

“The likelihood is that Martin will be taking the team this Saturday and he’s gone out training with the view that he’s getting a team together for our trip to Wycombe,” said the Brighton Chairman.

Hinshelwood is a former Crystal Palace midfielder who has managed Brighton for short spells before, in both 2001 and 2002.
