Manager Brian Flynn spoke to Rovers Player about his side’s the victory over Bournemouth, last time out, and how his players have the ‘licence to thrill’.
“It was a pretty impressive win,” he said
“The win we had down at Stevenage was really good because of the circumstances; this was in a similar sort of fashion where we’ve score a winner late on.
“At Stevenage being 1-0 down and going on to win it was a big boost for us in my first game in charge, but going back to the Bournemouth game, yes it was an impressive win.”
When asked about his sides ability to maintain intensity levels high until the final whistle, Flynn added: “There’s a couple of reasons for that; our fitness levels are really high, so I know that we can go on late in a game and we are well organised and have a good team shape.
“I like to add a little bit more by telling the players that they have a licence to thrill. That means if they want to get forward and do something different, they can.
“If you look at our winning goal against Bournemouth that is exactly what we did.
“Tommy Spurr is inside the opposition’s area as was James Husband. I gave them the license to do that, that’s our left sided midfield player and left back in the penalty box.
“To be a successful team you have to have that ingredient in your team, along with the organisation and team discipline – to get that bit extra you need that licence to thrill.”
