Swansea caretaker boss Leon Britton was full of praise for his players after they battled to a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, but reiterated he has no desire to take on the job full time.
Britton, in temporary charge following the dismissal of Paul Clement in the week, watched as second-half substitute Jordan Ayew rifled home on 77 minutes to cancel out Luka Milivojevic's 59th-minute penalty.
The result left Swansea bottom of the table over Christmas ahead of a Boxing Day trip to Liverpool, but Britton said it was important the club appointed the right man and did not rush the decision.
"As it stands I'll be in training and preparing for Liverpool," he said.
"The fans have been great with me, as player or manager, you could hear them being very vocal which I appreciate, but in terms of the job, nothing has changed and I'm not looking for the job full time.
"They need to make the right decision, make sure it's clear what they want, whether that's before Liverpool, after Liverpool or in January. They have to make sure they take their time and get the right man."
Of the game, Britton added: "I'm very proud of the players. They were excellent. They gave me everything.
"They pushed them right to the end, if any team was going to get the winner it looked like us and I have no complaints. They gave all the effort they had."
Britton was also pleased with the attitude of Ayew having started the game on the bench.
"Jordan came on and got the goal, he had a couple of other shots too and was lively and we need that. We need the substitutes to make an impact. His attitude was fantastic."
