DOWNES ON THE UP

20 January 2020

Boss on what's needed to take Flynn to the top - and why he can score more goals


Flynn Downes has all the attributes to add goals to his game says Town boss Paul Lambert.

The 20-year-old midfielder bagged his second of the campaign to level the scores at Tranmere at the weekend before Kayden Jackson grabbed the winner 11 minutes from time.

“Flynn has been excellent all season and he has to keep that going, not just this season but the next one and the one after that,” Paul told the Club website.

“He has to keep a high level every year he is in the game and hopefully if he does that, he will go on and have a great career. Consistency is the key.

“The higher level you go, the quicker the game becomes. It’s more one touch, two touch but that’s no problem to him.

“He showed on Saturday as well that he can get in the box and scores goals. Fitness wise he can make those late runs into the area. He’s got a great engine.

“It’s all about him learning the game and he’s still got a long way to go yet but I’m delighted with the way he has been playing for us.”
