Gavin Gunning said that he expects his Swindon Town future as interim head coach to become clear before too long.

Swindon are yet to appoint a permanent replacement for Michael Flynn, who departed in January after winning just one game in eight prior to departing the County Ground following yet another defeat at Crewe Alexandra.

Gunning has been in place since that time, winning three times in his 13 games in charge and seeing Town sitting in 19th place in League Two and nine points above the drop zone.

The former Blackburn Rovers defender has a 23 per cent win ratio, with only Jody Morris, Colin Todd, Les Allen, John Gorman, and Paul Hart having lower as permanent Swindon managers.

Jamie Russell and Clem Morfuni have both maintained that they were sticking with the 33-year-old until at least the end of the season but monitoring how his stint was going.

With five games remaining this season, Gunning was asked whether he had been given any indication of his future beyond the end of the current season.

He said: “Hopefully that will get sorted very soon and then we will all know where we are at and then obviously plan towards the future.”
