SWINDON have moved to clarify the situation with British star Simon Stead after a weekend of speculation surrounding his future with the club.
Patchett said: “Simon is aware we are concerned about his form.
“He says he is determined to turn things around which is good to hear and we will continue to work with him to enable him to achieve that.
For our part Alun and I are solely focused on producing the team best possible to give us every chance of play off success.
“Our team was built with strength in depth and potential heat winners in every position. We will not shirk the responsibility to make the difficult decisions if and when necessary and we will not enter the play offs with any weak links if a better option is available.”
