Flynn: Harsh lesson learnt

Doncaster manager Brian Flynn locked his players in the dressing room for over half-an-hour following their 3-0 defeat at MK Dons.

Brian Flynn: Critical of performance

Izale McLeod's first goal since rejoining the Dons and superb half-volleys from Daniel Powell and substitute Stephen Gleeson sealed a first win in nine games for Karl Robinson's men.

And Flynn was grateful his overnight leaders escaped with only a three-goal defeat at stadium:mk after a dismal display.

He said: "We lost to the better team. On the night they were better than us, the way they controlled the ball, their movement was always a problem for us and we just didn't deal with it all night.

"It was a really harsh lesson for us. We should have retained possession better, that's for certain - we didn't do that from the first minute to the last so that was a dangerous sign coming through.

"When you have so many players having an off-day it's not going to work for you, that's for certain. We struggled defensively - they've hit the post twice and they've had other chances. It could have been a heavier defeat.

"I think it was an all-round particularly bad night for us. There were no harsh words in the dressing room, just honest words - that's the key to it.

"If there's a small crumb of comfort it's that we're still top of the league and if you look at the recent month we've been five games undefeated."
