The former Aldershot Town and Braintee boss applied for the job following the departure of manager Dennis Kutrieb, a decision taken after the club plunged back into the National League relegation zone at the end of January.
Seale, 45, offered to lend a hand in the interim while Fleet officials decided who would take the club forward.
Although he accepts the short-term role is a no-promises situation, he has impressed in his ten days in charge, first holding Oldham Athletic to a draw and then on Saturday doing what no manager has since August - stopping Chesterfield from winning at home.
With a decision looming, the stand-in said: “It’s not about me, the lads have been fantastic. Whatever happens, they’re good enough to stay up - they to a man were brilliant against easily the best team in the league.
“I wouldn’t have applied for the job if I didn’t think they could survive. I’m hoping the work we’ve done so far will at least give me a chance, but the club has got to do what the club has got to do - that’s what comes first, and I respect that.
“Obviously, I am going to stand here and say it should be me! I’ve made no bones about the fact that I would like the job, but we’ll see what happens next. I saw it as a fantastic opportunity and I couldn't turn it down. I just had to grab it with both hands.”
He added: “It’s a great squad of players, but it’s about building their confidence now. The boys are good enough to be playing at this level.”
