SWINDON Town boss John Sheridan says he has no immediate plans to bring in a replacement coach after former assistant manager Noel Hunt departed the County Ground on Wednesday.

Hunt spent just 19 days working alongside Sheridan before leaving Town by mutual agreement. The Irishman is expected to move to Salford City to join up with former Swindon manager, Richie Wellens.

Sheridan admitted Hunt’s decision came as something of a shock and the 56-year-old has not yet spoken to owner and chairman Lee Power about what the club will do moving forward.

But the Town boss did confirm he is happy to carry on with the current coaching team as it is, and will only bring in another coach if he feels the workload is overwhelming.

Sheridan said: “I haven’t spoken to the chairman regarding Noel’s position yet. I’m sure that if I do feel I need another body in, I don’t think it will be a problem.

“When I’ve worked at most clubs with another coach and a goalkeeping coach, I like to do the training as well. But at this moment in time, I’m quite happy to go with what we’ve got.

“Ideally, I’d like every position covered and I’d like another three coaches if I’m being truthful, but that would never be the case because of the finances of most clubs at this level.”
