WEYMOUTH player-manager Jason Tindall wants the off-the-field issues hanging over the club's future to be resolved as soon as possible.

The 29-year-old made the admission after telling Echosport that he knew nothing about chairman Martyn Harrison's plans to open contract talks with him until he read the hotelier's comments in Wednesday's newspaper.

Tindall was given the job until the end of the season after Garry Hill and his assistant Kevin Hales were relieved of their duties in a huge cost-cutting exercise in January.

Since then Harrison has been trying to attract investors but as yet he has been unsuccessful despite constant rumours about possible takeover deals.

Speaking yesterday, Tindall said: "The first I heard of contract talks being opened was in the newspaper. I was with Gary Calder (chief executive) at the time and he has today told me that he has spoken to the chairman and that he wants to talk to me over the next couple of days.

"If he does then that would be fantastic because I have never really seen this as a short-term plan, I have been looking at the longer term.

"At the moment I think things are going well. The club has been stabilised a little bit, we have some talented and hungry youngsters performing superbly for us and now we want to take that on to the next level.

"As soon as everything is resolved, not just concerning ourselves but with everything else that is going on, the quicker things can move forward and the better it will be for everyone involved with the club."

Tindall's men will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host fourth-bottom Tamworth at the Wessex Stadium in Nationwide Conference National tomorrow (3pm). On Tuesday they suffered a 3-2 home loss against Woking after taking a two-goal lead into the break.

Tindall said: "We were obviously very disappointed with how Tuesday night went but we have watched the DVD of the second half and we know where we went wrong.

"The most important thing now is that we learn from that and make sure it does not happen again. If we do that then it will be a positive that has come out of a negative.

"Tamworth have been on a good run of late. When you look at the form table I think they are in the top three or four but if we can play like we did in the first half against Woking and carry that performance through for the full 90 minutes then we should do well.

"This game is a great opportunity for us to bounce back straight away and the lads are looking forward to trying to do exactly that."

Full-back Narada Bernard is struggling to be fit for the clash against the Lambs. Tindall said: "Narada is the only one who is doubtful so I am expecting to have the same squad available to me as I had for the Woking game. As for Roy O'Brien I have now been told that we should get the results of the scan on his ankle in the next two or three days. Hopefully it will be good news for us."
