Brian Flynn: More twists and turns to come

Just six points separate top-of-the-table Rovers and seventh-placed Yeovil going into this weekend's fixtures, and all seven clubs will feel they have a chance of being crowned champions at the end of next month.

They have all also unexpectedly dropped points in recent weeks.

Brentford lost back-to-back games at Stevenage and Carlisle. Swindon have played Hartlepool, Preston, Bury and Walsall in their last four home matches but have won none of them and lost to the Shakers.

Sheffield United were uncharacteristically thrashed 4-0 by struggling Stevenage last weekend. Bournemouth recently lost five games on the spin. Tranmere have lost three of their last four matches and Yeovil are without a win in three outings, despite leading 2-0 at home against Crawley nine days ago.

Doncaster themselves were unusually below-par in losing 3-0 at MK Dons at the start of the month and were held to a draw by bottom club Portsmouth at the Keepmoat Stadium last Saturday.

Flynn expects more twists and turns in the remaining month of the season.

He told reporters: "I said to the players at the end of the game on Saturday that the unpredictable will happen. We've drawn at home to a team who are struggling in the league this season - that was unexpected.

"We might have a couple of things in the next eight games that we are not expecting too, as will everyone else. We've got to make sure we're better prepared for them."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
