Feltham player-boss Darren Lake admits he is not looking to be a long-term managerial appointment.
Lake took over the reins jointly with Duncan Holder in the summer after previous boss Ken Smith was dismissed before a ball was kicked.
It's been a see-saw of a season sofar, with five wins and six defeats seeing Feltham sitting second in Combined Counties One.
And Lake admitted it has been a baptism of fire.
He said: "It's very difficult to be a player-manager. But I think it works with me alongside Duncan.
"We took over with only two play-ers remaining from last season, so it's been a steep learning curve.
"We've both enjoyed the opportunity, and I would like the chance to eventually manage properly once I've taken my coaching badges.
"But I still enjoy playing too - I even played last week after coming back from holiday at 4am that morning.
"However, if I can we guide the club back through to its move back to Feltham Arenas, and play some good football along the way, I'll be happy."
Feltham chairman Brian Barry admitted this week the renovated Arenas will not be ready in time for next season, meaning another season sharing at Bedfont FC.
And Lake for one cannot wait to move home.
It's not that he is ungrateful to Bedfont, where they have built up a good relationship, for the ground-share.
But he reckons the passing game he wants to employ at Feltham will be better-served on the new pitches at a rejuvenated Arenas.
He said: "With so many games being played on Bedfont's pitch, there are times that you just can't play the style we would like to.
"But the weather did not help on Saturday either."
Feltham still managed to carve out a 2-0 win over rock-bottom Chobham, thanks to two goals in the opening seven minutes from Steve Baxter.
He opened the scoring after three minutes when Ryan Curtis' cross caused a goal-mouth scrabble.
Baxter was on hand again just four minutes later to deflect Mekel Hackett's long-range effort in following a corner.
