Brian Flynn: Pleased with a 'valuable point'

Rovers, who will now be without striker Chris Brown for a minimum of four weeks due to a knee ligament injury, missed out on top spot for the first time this season - with Bournemouth's win over Crewe on Tuesday night taking them to the League One summit.

"It was obviously an opportunity missed to go top but we eradicated some of the problems we showed on Saturday," said Flynn, referring to Doncaster's 2-1 defeat at home to Walsall.

"It was a high-octane game with a lot of physical challenges and chances at both ends.

"We had a game plan and we stuck to it and it was important we made some amends for the last two games.

"It's important not to lose a home game and it will prove to be a valuable point."

Rovers' best chance at the Keepmoat fell to striker Billy Paynter just before the break but he shot over from eight yards.

"He tried to hit it too hard," said Flynn.

Izale McLeod missed a couple of good chances for the Dons, for whom Daniel Powell also tested impressive Doncaster goalkeeper Gary Woods.

"He made some fantastic saves, important ones as well," added Flynn.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
