Flynn in frame for Rovers job

Brian Flynn has revealed that he is on the shortlist to become the next permanent manager of Doncaster.

The former Wales Under-21 boss has been in caretaker charge along with captain Rob Jones following the departure of Dean Saunders to Wolves 10 days ago.

The Rovers hierarchy met on Thursday to finalise a shortlist and arrange interviews for prospective successors to Saunders and 57-year-old Flynn is among the candidates - and open to taking the job.

He told BBC Radio Sheffield: "Possession is nine-tenths of the law and I've got the job at the moment.

"The club have told me that I am on the shortlist and I await their decision.

"I'm led to believe that something will be sorted next week but I don't know for certain."

Flynn spent eight years in charge of Wales' youth teams before joining Doncaster as a scout in August.

Alongside Jones, he guided Rovers to a 2-1 win at Stevenage last weekend to keep the club joint-top of League One.

The former Wrexham boss has been out of club management since leaving Swansea in 2004.
