Brian Flynn set to be replaced by Paul Dickov at Doncaster

Reports have surfaced that Doncaster Rovers are planning on replacing boss Brian Flynn with former Oldham manager Paul Dickov. Flynn, who won the League One title with the club on a dramatic final day of the season, is believed to have been offered another role at the Yorkshire outfit, according to local paper The Star.

Earlier this week Dickov emerged as the hot favourite to succeed the Welshman, only for the market to have since been slammed shut. The 40-year-old has been out of work since leaving the Latics back in February following a shocking run of form, however he is now widely expected to be the man charged with leading the club’s Championship challenge next season.
 
Last Saturday Doncaster snatched the title from Bournemouth's grasp in sensational style. Going into the final day of the season Rovers were two points adrift of leaders Bournemouth, meaning they had to win, and the Cherries lose or draw, in order to claim the third-tier title. However, in a tense twist the fixture list had scheduled Rovers away third-placed Brentford, who needed to win in order to leapfrog Rovers and sneak into the second automatic play-off place, with the Cherries already assured of promotion but not the title.

In the final minute of the game Brentford were awarded a penalty, which they missed, with Rovers storming up the other end and scoring a last-gasp winner to send their fans into raptures as the 1-0 victory had secured them the title meant following Bournemouth’s draw at Tranmere.

In the aftermath of the stunning scenes Flynn reiterated his desire to stay at Doncaster. The 57-year-old had replaced Dean Saunders in January on a short-term four-month contract after Saunders had departed for Wolves. However. the two teams now look to be trading leagues, with the Midlands club in need of a miracle to survive on the final day of the Championship season tomorrow.

Fynn’s contract actually expired last Sunday but he was handed a two week extension while the club decided how to move forward. The short-term nature of the deal has inevitably fuelled speculation that he will not be offered a new long-term contract, despite what he has achieved in the last couple of months.
