Brian Flynn: Defeat not the end of the world

Liam Noble grabbed a goal in each half to give the Cumbrians victory in the League One encounter at the Keepmoat Stadium, but Rovers remain in a strong position for automatic promotion after both Swindon and Sheffield United were also beaten.

Flynn, whose team are seven points clear of third, was not too concerned with Tuesday's performance and challenged his players to bounce back with a victory at the weekend.

"We started the game strongly but all credit to Carlisle for making it difficult for us," he said.

"They were very energetic and stopped us playing before grabbing a goal from a deflection and then the second one put a different complexion on the game.

"We started the second half brightly as well but it just wasn't our night.

"I'm not just writing it off like that but it's not the end of the world and the league table will look the same in the morning because nothing has changed with two of our rivals losing.

"People have been getting excited about our prospects of winning the league but we've got to do the job first.

"After the game, the players were deflated but I think there will be a response at Crewe on Saturday - no doubt about that."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
