ANDREW Fitton insists he has the right man for the job in Town boss Danny Wilson, as he refuses to contemplate the thought of League One relegation.

Swindon are hovering above the drop zone on goal difference alone following a disappointing campaign which has seen a managerial change fail to kick-start their rise up the division.

And while Wilson has only recorded three wins since his arrival over Christmas, Fitton believes the formula is correct to equal eventual success at the County Ground.

“I think some of the football has been very good and nobody could deny that,” Fitton told the Advertiser.

“The games against Leicester and Millwall were incredibly frustrating because we played great football and came away with next to nothing - just a point in both games.

“Danny very quickly got them playing better and even though the results have been mixed I don’t think his confidence in his own ability ever wavered.

“Danny is an easy guy to work with because he is so confident. He knows exactly what he is trying to achieve here and how he wants to go about it. He’s doing things in a sensible way.

“I believe Danny is the right man for this club and relegation is not something I even contemplate.

“We might have contingency plans in place, but our focus is fully on getting the 15 more points that should guarantee our survival.

“We now have a run of lower half teams coming up and, if we can put together a string of three wins, then we will be having a very different conversation.”

Fitton revealed he can see up to 15 clubs could going out of business between now and the start of next season as the economic climate takes its toll on the beautiful game.

And the chairman believes he and his fellow board members have been right to exercise caution when it comes to spending.

He said: “Football is in deep financial trouble in my opinion, all the way from the halfway down the Premier League to the bottom divisions.

“It’s a loss-making industry and there aren’t the people out there who are prepared to fund those losses any more.

“There will be up to 15 clubs who will go bust before September. I don’t know who, but there will be a surprising amount who just cannot continue at this current rate. And I don’t think any club should be complacent because there are hard times still to come.

“It is something that we expected to happen and we are pleased in a way because it will force some proper behaviour.

“Is it right to throw money at it? You cannot buy success any more.

“We would rather be remembered for doing a good job than just throwing money at it. We’ve all got to be conservative owners.”
