Keith Millen will remain in charge of Bristol City until the end of the season, chairman Steve Lansdown has confirmed.
It was widely expected Millen would be replaced by a permanent manager before Saturday's home game with Derby.
However, Lansdown told the club's official website: "Keith will remain in charge for the remainder of the season. He has done an excellent job so far and therefore we would like him to see out the season for the club."
He added: "The club continues to work towards an appointment and will make any further announcements when it is appropriate."
The Londoner was appointed as caretaker manager following Gary Johnson's departure by mutual consent last month and has led the Ashton Gate club to six wins and one defeat from his seven games.
His only loss was Saturday's 3-0 reverse to Scunthorpe at Glanford Park which ended the Robins` faint hopes of a play-off place.
