Noel Hunt- The ex-Leeds United and Reading forward is in caretaker charge at the County Ground under a new manager is found. His side have lost both games with him at the helm so far to Plymouth Argyle and Darlington respectively.

Michael Flynn- The 40-year-old has done an impressive job at current side Newport County and could be eyed by Swindon. He has been in charge of the League Two side for the past three years and may want to test himself at a higher level.

Michael Duff- He is another young manager plying his trade in the fourth tier. The Cheltenham Town boss got the Robins in the Play-Offs last season and is another who the Robins may consider as a good long-term option for them.
