Doncaster Rovers: Flynn seeks title glory

Have your say

BRIAN Flynn insists Doncaster Rovers only remaining target is to win League One.

Saturday’s dramatic 2-1 win at Bournemouth saw Rovers move three points clear at the top of the table plus open up a five point margin in the automatic promotion places.

And Rovers are now 10 points clear of seventh placed Bournemouth with just nine games remaining.

But Rovers boss Flynn refused to acknowledge any significance in Rovers taking a major step closer to guaranteeing at least a play-off place and instead reaffirmed his solitary aim.

“We’re only focussed on winning the title,” Flynn said.

“The positive from Saturday was a big win against a very good team – that’s what we take from it. Bournemouth gave us plenty of problems and we overcame that.

“We’re not concerned with what any other team is doing or what position they’re in. All we will do is concentrate on what we’re doing.

“Our target is finishing with at least one point more than the team in second place. That’s our focus.”

Rovers again recovered from conceding a late equaliser to secure the win.

Matt Tubbs cancelled out Billy Paynter’s opener but a minute later James Husband scored from an acute angle for his third goal in six games.

Flynn said: “We’ve done so well on so many occasions to come back and win the game.

“That’s testament to the determination of this group.

“There’s always time to score again – it only takes a second to score. I’m really pleased for young James because he’s found a nice bit of scoring form.

“We weren’t ourselves against MK Dons but we sorted it out on Saturday.

“We got the team selection right and it paid off.”
