Flynn: Has big plans for Rovers

Flynn, who watched Rob Jones and Chris Brown find the net in either half, has only been given a contract until the end of the season.

But he said: "The length of contracts has never concerned me. It's only a piece of paper. I've got big plans for the club - this season and next season.

"The chairman has already said he wants to win the title so no pressure there. But I agree with him.

"We're in a good position, joint top with a game in hand, and I've never liked to settle for second best.

"It was nice to kick-off with a win but I've inherited a good side here. The teamwork is superb, but maybe we can get a bit more from the players individually.

"We became a little bit sloppy in the second half but overall I thought we were convincing the way we went about the job.

"Some of our attacking play was top notch and we could have scored a few more goals.

"We've got a couple of weeks off now and that's good in a way because it gives us more time to work and improve on the training ground."

FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
