"I'm doing my job at Halifax, and I'll continue to do my job at Halifax," Wild said.

"I've been linked with quite a few jobs recently, which is humbling, but as I've always said, that's fair credit to the players and they deserve all the credit for what's been a good season so far."

Halifax return to league action on Saturday when they host bottom side Dover at The Shay.

Other results have been favourable for The Shaymen since their last league outing, with some of their promotion rivals dropping points as they played games-in-hand.

"Yeah but there's nothing handed out in the middle of February," Wild said.

"There's loads of twists and turns in the season for every club, including ourselves.

"We just need to keep putting points on the board, that's all I'm bothered about. Where we are in the table's irrelevant in the middle of February.

"We've got to keep putting points on the board and that'll determine how high up the league we are."
