Flynn: We Have Got To Keep A Cool Head

19 April 2013

Manager Brian Flynn spoke to Rovers Player ahead of Rovers home game against Notts County on Saturday.

Victory in the game could see Rovers promoted back to the Championship, at the first time of asking, providing either Brentford or Bournemouth drop points.


Brian said that his players need to adopt a nature of calmness in the fixture and also that he believes that County will be far from easy opponents.


“We’re confident and relaxed,” he said


“I think on Saturday everyone is going to be excited the heart will be pumping but we have got to keep a cool head.


“If we can be cool, calm and have controlled aggression I think we will be ok. Notts County are not going to just come here and just give us three points. They had a good win last week, they’re 

introducing young into the team and that has payed off handsomely for them.


“Chris Kiwomya will know the young players because he has come through with them and has shown confidence in them. They’ve repayed him with their performances so they’re not going to come here and make it easy for us.


“I think with the young players coming in it has given the other players a new lease of life. They’ve introduce three eighteen year olds into the team which shows that they’re preparing for next year.”


Matters in other games also affect the outcome of Rovers result with the Bournemouth and Brentford results playing a part in whether Flynn’s men seal promotion on Saturday.


“There are other issues around this game, it’s not just 90 minutes, I understand that. There’s a bigger issue’s but we need to make sure we go into the Brentford game with it still being in our own hands.


“I’ve been involved in games  when you can sense what is going on elsewhere, information will  be filtered through certainly if its dramatic result in our favour, but I haven’t set anything up specifically to know what is going on.”
