Manager Brian Flynn spoke to Rovers Player ahead of the trip to the Greenhous Meadow, and said his side 'were doing what we're good at' last time out against Yeovil Town.

Flynn spoke about the performance, against an in-form Yeovil Town, on Saturday and admitted that he thought his team were getting back to doing the things that they are good at.


“The biggest thing we got out of Saturday was the performance,” he said


“We were up against a good side on a fantastic run and they showed the qualities they have got in the first half.


“The most important thing that we did first half was to maintain some of the momentum and built upon it in the second.


“When your playing well certain decisions need to be made, in terms of when to run or stand still and when to move the ball quickly playing one or two touch football.


“We did that in the second half, you will see that all of our attacks were created by one touch and two touch football. Defenders find it really difficult to deal with. Coupled with the pace we have got in the team, it showed to me that we are back doing what we're good at.


Flynn paid special tribute to the goal that Rovers did score through Billy Paynter.


“The technique of Billy’s goal was fantastic,” said Flynn


“Again the quality of cross from David Cotterill was very good. The timing of his [Paynter’s] run getting into space and the technique of heading the ball was superb.”


Tomorrow evening’s opponents Shrewsbury are a team that manager Brian Flynn has watched on numerous occasions and he has describe the game against them as a ‘tough test’.


“They’ve had a good couple of results recently,” he said


“Playing Shrewsbury away from home will be a tough test. I watched them play about six weeks ago, at home, and they impressed me - league position at this stage is irrelevant to me, in terms of your opposition.


“It been a fantastic run, away from home and I think it’s going to play a part in the run in. We have to pick up points away from home as well as at home; we cant rely on one or the other.


“It’s going to get tighter and tighter at the top, it may even go down to goal difference – we will keep doing what we are doing and keep grinding out results if that is the case.”
