Doncaster Rovers push boat out with promotion to the Championship

 

Doncaster Rovers may have had a dramatic return to the Championship but to reward manager Brian Flynn with a two-week contract has to take the buscuit.

Flynn, who has not managed in the division before, took over on a deal until the end of the season in January and led the club to the League One title with a dramatic win over Brentford.

Brentford had the opportunity to win the game with a penalty that hit the bar for Flynn's side to go up the other end and score a dramatic winner from James Coppinge that not only promoted his side but pipped Bournmouth to the title and condemned Brentford to the play offs.

Rovers chairman John Ryan said BBC Radio Sheffield: "We've extended Brian's contract by a couple of weeks so he's still getting paid.

"I'm going to sit down with the major shareholders on Tuesday and discuss a lot of peoples' futures."

He added: "It isn't just Brian, there are a lot of other people out of contract too."
