TOWN midfielder Michael Flynn is backing Lee Clark’s side to build on Saturday’s 1-0 win at Hereford and end the season in style.
Boss Clark has thrown down the gauntlet to his players to show they want to be part of his plans for next season and the Welsh midfielder thought the manager was getting the response he was looking for – and expects the side to continue that way at Bristol Rovers tomorrow night.
“No reason why we can’t back up this win at Bristol – we are a good team and the sooner we believe that then the sooner we will start going places,” said the 24-year-old.
“We have got some outstanding players in people like Anthony Pilkington and Gary Roberts to name just two.
“But you can go through the team. Michael Collins, who got the winning goal on Saturday, people like Jim Goodwin, who didn’t get a game and Alex Smithies must have saved us 10 points at least this season.
“So there are a lot of positives and you do get that feeling around the club and, like anyone else, I want to be part of it.”
The win at Edgar Street ended a seven-match run without a win and gave boss Clark his first away victory as a manager, and Flynn did not expect the positive feeling around the squad to be wasted.
“It was definitely good to get back to winning ways,” he said.Related content
“The week where we had the three late goals scored against us maybe took a little bit more out of the team than we thought.
“We tried to be resilient and sweep it under the carpet, but in truth three late goals and results like that can dent anyone’s confidence.
“So it was very pleasing at Hereford that we showed we can hold out and we gained the 1-0 win.”
