Brian Flynn: Wants Rovers to expect the heat

The Shakers moved to within a point of safety in League One after fit-again striker Andy Bishop broke the deadlock at Gigg Lane in the 25th minute and Nicky Ajose doubled their lead 10 minutes later.

And although the visitors piled on the pressure for the rest of the contest, Bury hung on to end Doncaster's 12-match unbeaten away run.

Flynn said his side were now a prized scalp for other clubs in the division.

"Being up there is a huge confidence booster," said Flynn.

"But there's also that added pressure of teams wanting to beat you - and that's what happened with Bury.

"They were desperate, they worked really hard to stop us playing and they wanted to beat us because we're a scalp, and we're going to have to deal with that now we're in the top two.

"I was disappointed to concede from two set-plays. It was unexpected, to say the least, because we don't let that happen very often.

"Second half we had to push the full-backs forward, which let them have one or two opportunities on the counter-attack, but I'm prepared to take risks to get forward and get goals."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
