Flynn: Probably The Best Of The Season

Manager Brian Flynn spoke to Rovers Player after seeing his side claim three points against promotion rivals Swindon Town.

Jamie McCombe headed the winning goal ten minutes before time, however Rovers were unlucky not to have take the lead earlier in the game.



Brian described the performance at the Keepmoat this afternoon as ‘probably the best of the season'.


“It was a controlled, proper performance from every department,” he said


“Gary Woods hardly had anything to do and what he had to do he did comfortably.


“The type of performance we asked for and wanted was exactly what we got out there which is really pleasing for the fans. I think it’s one of those games where everyone goes home really happy after a really good performance, probably the best of the season.

“I haven’t looked at the league table but I know that we are top and we are looking down at the teams below us, that’s all that matters.


“The teams below us will have watched us today and seen how powerful we were, seen how controlled we were and did the right things most of the time.


“The timing of the victory, straight after a defeat, was perfect. We bounced back again after a defeat which in my time here has been a key factor.”


Town ‘keeper Wes Foderingham pulled off some stunning save to deny Rovers before McCombe’s late winner and Brian admitted he thought he might just prove the difference.

“When the goalkeeper made those two acrobatic saves I thought we are not going to beat him, but we are good at set plays. I’m delighted for Jamie [McCombe] he hasn’t got many goals this season, in fact I think that is his first, but the quality of David Cotterill’s delivery was the important factor.


“Jamie’s timing was good and the ball in was good so to see the net ripple was fantastic.


“There are a lot of good characters in the dressing room who are focused on getting Doncater back to the Championship.”
