AFTER overseeing what could potentially be his last game as Swindon Town manager, Phil Brown says he is ready to stake his claim for the position as he prepares to meet chairman Lee Power tomorrow.

Brown signed off his 10-game stint with a 3-0 win over League Two champions Accrington Stanley at the Energy Check County Ground on the final day of the season.

With the season done and Town registering a disappointing ninth-placed finish, attention will now turn to filling the Swindon hot seat on a permanent basis.

Following David Flitcroft’s departure during the campaign, Brown was installed as an interim basis and has subsequently thrown his hat in the ring for the position.

The 58-year-old says he is ready to plead his case with Power when they meet for an end-of-season debrief tomorrow.

“The decision is down to one man. He knows that I’m forthright, I know what my job is and an know what my role as a manager is,” said the former Hull City boss.

“When people get in the way of that, they cloud the water and cloud judgement, so I need a little bit of clarity tomorrow.

“He (Power) will certainly get clarity from me. I’ll tell him my plans and if he goes with them, I’ll be manager next year and if he doesn’t, somebody else will be.

“Whoever is in charge will be inheriting a good club, there is no doubt in my mind this club shouldn’t be in League Two.

“However, it has to have that reality check if that is where we are at. If you start the season in League Two, you only have one aim and that is to get promoted.”

Should Brown be given the job, he says he sees a plenty of positives in the club both on and off the field.

However, the former Premier League boss also reiterated there is still a long way to go as he plans to install some continuity at the County Ground.

“It is a little bit all over the place but is without a doubt something that you can pull together with hard work, foresight and understanding of what I want and what I require,” said Brown, who has already made some minor adjustments.

“Ultimately it comes down to players and results. To be brutally honest we have been to three training grounds, we’ve been to three or four venues with regards to food.

“I’ve tried to bring everyone to the County Ground before the game, mixing with the staff here because I think that is important.

“We work together they work for us and we work for them. It doesn’t matter if you’re cooking, cleaning, press, whatever, everyone is a team here and it’s not just the 11 players on the pitch.”
