Who is this?

Swindon Town managerial decision to make

Swindon have a big decision to make regarding their managerial position.

They won’t go up or down this season so can start thinking about the summer already.

It has been a tough spell as caretaker for Gunning and his side have had a few frustrating matches.

The Robins need to ensure that their get their next appointment right as a club of their size should be playing higher up the Football League.

Gunning has said he is enjoying his time in the dugout at the County Ground but his chances of getting the full-time role will depend on the hierarchy’s stance on him and results between now and the end of the campaign.

As a player, the Dublin-born man made 386 appearances before calling time on his playing career in 2022.

He played for the likes of Blackburn Rovers, Birmingham City, Port Vale, Forest Green Rovers and Chesterfield as a centre-back.

The ex-Republic of Ireland youth international has been on the coaching staff at Swindon since hanging up his boots.

The Wiltshire club were beaten 2-1 at home by Accrington Stanley last time out and are winless in their last three outings.

They have the chance to bounce back against Doncaster Rovers at home this weekend as they look to return to winning ways.
