Blackpool caretaker manager Steve Thompson confirmed he would love to lead the team on a permanent basis after the 2-1 npower Championship win at Wolves.
Wolves took a 15th-minute lead through Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, only for a Thomas Ince double to earn Blackpool their first win in seven league games.
Thompson, who is in temporary charge for the second time this season having first stepped in following the departure of Ian Holloway and then taken the reins from Michael Appleton, said: "It is not going to do me any harm to get results.
"I have always said that if it is me, fantastic. If it is not I will just hold the fort until somebody else comes in here.
"But whoever gets it has got a special bunch of players there. Karl (Oyston, Blackpool's chairman) knows the situation at the moment and it is in his court.
"I have always said that I am ready to be a number one. I would be chuffed to bits if I got a number one.
"But at the end of the day it is Karl's choice. He will do what is best for Blackpool."
As well as having to decide on the manager's job, Oyston is also likely to be fielding calls regarding Ince ahead of the transfer window closing on Thursday.
Liverpool are known admirers of Ince, and Thompson added: "I have heard the speculation but everything has a price.
"You see certain players going for big money and he is just as good as them. So if he is going to go, he is not going to go cheap. He is a special talent. If Tom goes, he goes, and he has earned it because he has been fantastic."
