Kevin MacDonald leaves Swindon Town

Swindon Town manager Kevin MacDonald has left the club by mutual consent after just 14 games in charge.

The Scot missed last night's friendly defeat at non-league Forest Green Rovers, with a club spokesman insisting he was missing for personal reasons.

Reports claimed the 52-year-old was considering his position, and the club has now confirmed his departure:

Swindon Town Football Club can confirm that after further meetings with the Board of Directors today, Kevin MacDonald has left his position as First Team Manager by mutual consent.

The Club would like to thank Kevin for all his hard work during his time at Swindon Town and wish him all the best for the future.

Swindon Town's play-off semi-final second leg at Brentford has gone into extra time.

Town were trailing 3-2 (4-3 on agg) with just seconds remaining. But Aden Flint's unstoppable header in the fifth minute of stoppage time means there will be an extra 30 minutes at Griffin Park.

Swindon Town were denied a first leg victory in their League One play-off semi-final with Brentford after conceding an injury time penalty.

Massimo Luongo had given Town the lead from the edge of the area twenty minutes from time.

But Luongo went from hero to villain when he brought down Harry Forrester in the box in the third minute of added time, and Kevin O'Connor made no mistake from the spot.

The second leg will be played at Griffin Park on Monday.
