Brian Flynn believes the dramatic finish to the promotion decider at Brentford could be the catalyst to fire Doncaster Rovers to Championship safety next season.

But the Welshman may not be the man at the helm to guide Rovers on their return to the second tier.

Flynn’s temporary deal put him in charge until the end of the season and despite leading the club to the League One title, there appears to be no guarantee he will be handed the role on a permanent basis.

It is understood Flynn’s future is set to be decided during a board meeting tomorrow. The 57-year-old dodged questions on the subject in the aftermath of Saturday’s breathless clash at Griffin Park.

Goalscorer Coppinger said afterwards he believes Flynn will continue to play a role at the club.

In less than 20 injury time seconds, Rovers went from sitting one kick away from being consigned to the play-offs to being crowned League One champions.

Marcello Trotta’s rattled the bar with a penalty, sparking a break for Rovers capped by a goal for the club’s longest serving player James Coppinger. Flynn said the incident was a further demonstration of Rovers’ undying determination and will only further their belief that ‘anything is possible.’

“It just sums up what this group of players are all about - never say die, never give up, always believe you can get something out of the game,” Flynn said.

“It’s a defining moment for this club.”
