St Albans City caretaker manager Harry Wheeler guided the Saints to a second win under his temporary tenure on Saturday.
The 26-year-old UEFA A licence coach, at the helm following the resignation of former bosses James Gray and Graham Golds last weekend, saw City, second bottom of the Vanarama National League South, to a 3-0 home win over Margate with goals from Louie Theophanous, Harry Crawford and Sam Corcoran.
That win followed the 5-0 midweek Herts Senior Cup success at Oxhey Jets.
Wheeler said: “You can’t ask for a better start, eight goals in two games isn’t bad and two clean sheets.
“Today [Saturday] was much more important, obviously we wanted to win Tuesday, but today was the epitome of the whole week.”
However, it seems Wheeler is unlikely to take on the job long-term, although he would be tempted if it was offered to him.
He said: “I’m always up for it. Do I feel I can do it? Yes, am I good enough to get the best out of players? Yes.

“It would be very hard to turn down, but at the same time for where I am in my position [a full-time academy coach with League Two Dagenham & Redbridge] I’m not sure it would be the best thing for me.
“I’d like to still be here and I want to be around, I’d love to be around and I’d give everything I have already and more and I’d take it as an experience and see what happens.
“I’d never say never, but at the same I’m keeping myself focussed as an individual in my aims and goals in the future and where I want to be.”
