Welling player/boss Jamie Day has quashed rumours linking him with a return to Dartford.
Following Welling's 1-0 defeat at St Albans on Saturday in Blue Square Bet South, rumours circulated around Clarence Park that Day was going to move back to Princes Park as manager with current Darts boss Tony Burman taking on a director of football role.
But Day insisted on Sunday that there is no truth in that story.
"I've got no idea where that came from," said Day, pictured. "No-one has spoken to me about it, I haven't heard a thing.
"Dartford haven't spoken to me, Tony hasn't said anything and I don't think he will step down anyway next year.
"My focus is on the next three games, we've got to take as many points as we can to get into the play-offs."
Day left himself out of the team at St Albans in a bid to avoid picking up a 15th caution of the campaign. A yellow card would have seen him banned for any potential play-off semi-final.
However, he also disclosed that a groin strain influenced his decision and admitted his absence was not to blame on Welling's shock defeat to the bottom side.
"I don't regret not playing," said Day, who is expected to return at home to Thurrock on Good Friday. "I had a groin strain and we created enough chances to win the game.
"They only had a couple of shots and we had three goals disallowed - it was one of those days.
"We've been on a good run, we've only lost one game in 14 before Saturday so we haven't become a bad team overnight.
"The play-offs are still in our own hands, I'm disappointed but credit to St Albans as they didn't make it easy for us."
