Jody Morris has been sacked by Swindon Town.

The former St Johnstone midfielder has been relieved of his duties after only four months at the League Two club.

Morris’ last game of 18 matches in charge was a 2-1 defeat at Crewe, having been appointed to his first managerial role at the end of January.

Steve Mildenhall and Gavin Gunning will take charge of the final Sky Bet League Two fixture at home to Crawley on May 8.

“We would like to thank both Jody and Ed for their contribution and efforts since joining the football club, and wish them all the very best in the future,” a statement from Swindon read.

“Our aim when they took over was to push on and finish the second half of the season strongly, but as a club, we haven’t achieved our objectives.

“With just one more league game remaining before we reach the conclusion of the season, we feel now is the right time to take a fresh approach as we look to bring success back to this great club for 2023/24.

“Work is well underway to find our next manager, with an announcement in due course.”

Meanwhile, Max Kucheriavyi has opened up on his St Johnstone frustrations after being sent out on loan to Falkirk back in January.

The Ukrainian youngster has impressed in League One with John McGlynn's side and was a standout at Hampden on Saturday, despite his team's loss in the Scottish Cup semi-final against Inverness.

Kucheriavyi, 20, feels he was never really given a chance under the leadership of Callum Davidson at McDiarmid Park, but he hopes his current loan spell will help his chances when he returns in the summer.

He said: “I signed a new deal until 2025 at St Johnstone.

“I have spoken to Gus MacPherson and Liam Craig but they have a lot going on there right now with the group they have right now.

“I am sure we will get to talk at some point. I thought I had a good pre-season this year after good loan spells last season but I don’t think I got my chance."
