Gary Megson has set his sights on a return to football management, having overseen two games in caretaker charge of West Bromwich Albion.

Megson, who managed Bolton between 2007 and 2009, has overseen draws against both Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United in recent days after the Baggies parted company with boss Tony Pulis.

Although five years have passed since he left his previous club, Sheffield Wednesday, Megson says his brief stint at The Hawthorns has reignited his desire to get back into the game, although he will remain choosy when deciding upon which jobs to apply for.

"It's whetted my appetite to get back into it," Megson told BBC Sport. "Whether I will or not, I don't know.

"The last three years I haven't applied for any jobs and that was the end of it.

"From now-on I will apply for managerial roles but only ones that suit me. If it doesn't suit, I'll just go back to doing what I was doing."
