Managerless Swindon Town have set their sights on Mansfield Town boss Steve Evans after making an approach for the Scotsman...

...an approach that has instantly been denied by the Stags and their chairman John Radford.

Earlier this month Swindon parted ways with Luke Williams after losing their League One status, and have since been linked with the likes of former Robins defender Adrian Viveash, Partick Thistle’s Alan Archibald, QPR’s technical director Chris Ramsey, and former R’s boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

However, it’s now Evans who leads the betting at 1/2 (Bet Victor), while Sky Bet have suspended the market.

Evans has only been on charge of Mansfield since November, when he replaced Adam Murray, but he may now have his head turned by the Robins who will be joining his current side in League Two next season, with the two clubs favourite for promotion.

Swindon will be bidding to conjure up an instant return to League One, and Evans knows all about promotion out of the fourth-tier having previously achieved this feat with Rotherham.

The passionate Scot then took the Millers into the Championship, while he previously propelled Crawley Town and Boston up into the Football League.
