SWINDON Town have issued a statement regarding the managerial and takeover situations at the County Ground.

It reads: "Members of the current Board of Directors will be meeting with the prospective new owners today prior to an update with regards to the takeover of the club being provided.

Communication with the Football League continues as the takeover of the club nears completion.

With the club now at the top of League One following yesterday’s excellent team performance at Tranmere Rovers, there is already plenty of speculation as to who the next manager of Swindon Town Football Club will be.

No immediate decision will be taken and in the interim the Board will be discussing the matter with senior members of the playing squad to maintain consistency and be fully prepared for the next two home League One fixtures."
