Gavin Gunning has hinted that the Swindon Town squad will be learning more about their respective futures in the next week.

With only six members of the current squad certain that they will be Swindon players when pre-season begins, there is plenty of uncertainty over what the squad will look like moving forward, with the 17 other permanently contracted players yet to have clarity over their situations.

Williams Kokolo revealed last week that he had not held any conversations over whether he would be offered a new contract by the club when his expires at the end of June.

When discussing what the current squad had to play for in the remaining games of the season, Gunning mentioned that the players may not be left in the dark for much longer.

He said: “I think everybody is playing for something, everybody has got something on the line whether you want to go to a different club or you are trying to get a deal here.

“There is loads to play for, personal pride, if you are a professional footballer then you only get to play for so long.

“You have got to be positive and enjoy what you are doing because you are so lucky to be in this job.

“I think the boys will obviously get more of an inkling of what is happening in the next week or so and we will go from there.”

However, whilst the players might be getting a look at what is to come for them, Gunning himself remains no closer to learning whether he will be given the Town job on a full-time basis following a three-month spell in charge of the team.

The 33-year-old has won four of his 14 games since taking over from Michael Flynn in January and being handed the remainder of the season and has not been shy about saying that he would like to get the job permanently.

He said: “I don’t know [what will happen], all I can do is try and keep winning games and see where we go.

“[Is that frustrating?] No, not really. I am a Swindon Town employee and I am just doing the best job that I can do.

“I am sure I will be here, I am positive about it, but I just take each day at a time as I am privileged to be in the position that I am.”
