Relegation could force Hart out

Published Add your comment

Swindon manager Paul Hart admitted he could leave the club after their relegation to League Two was confirmed by defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

Former Portsmouth and Crystal Palace boss Hart was unable to prevent the Robins from the drop - just a year after they reached the play-off final - as Jonathan Douglas' stunning strike proved to be in vain.

Hart said: "There are an awful lot of hard decisions to be made before the club can go forward. I would like to have made a bigger impact but there are circumstances that haven't allowed that to happen. I have a decision to make whether to stay or not. I've got to make my mind up."


He added: "We're very disappointed with the result but I thought the way we played was excellent.

"I think we restricted Sheffield Wednesday's attempts on goal to about four and they scored three of them while we had double figures in terms of attempts but only scored one."

Sheffield Wednesday manager Gary Megson has seen his side steadily climb the table in recent weeks and was pleased with the improvement.

He said: "I thought it was a good performance. I thought that at times Swindon had players who put their foot on the ball without really threatening us.

"I'm told that's the first time we've won four home league games on the trot in four-and-a-half years.

"It's about trying to set standards. You certainly can't fault the players for the effort and desire they're showing.

"We scored a good first goal and the second was even better. For the third goal I was thankful it fell to Neil Mellor who showed the composure to finish well."
