Paul Hart believes Swindon need to appoint a permanent manager as quickly as possible.
Caretaker boss Hart has made no secret of his desire to take on the job full-time, but Paul Trollope and current assistant manager Ian McParland are also in the frame.
Hart told the Swindon Advertiser: "I think for the benefit of the football club, a decision on whoever is going to be manager needs to be made sooner rather than later.
"There are an awful lot of plans to be put into place and decisions to be made and all that sort of stuff.
"The club will lose ground in all markets if a decision is not made soon, so for the benefit of the club I think it`s the common sense option."
Chairman Andrew Fitton recently confirmed that a decision on the management team would be taken before the end of the month.
