Wins mean more to Bairns winger

Falkirk's Ryan Flynn collected the SPL's young player of the month award on Thursday but admitted the feeling could not compare with Saturday.[LNB] Bairns Flynn took greater pleasure in the winning sensation he experienced at Fir Park last weekend than the gong.[LNB]Flynn netted the only goal after a free-flowing passing move to give Falkirk a much-needed victory in their fight against relegation.[LNB]The 21-year-old also netted opening goals against Hamilton and St Johnstone in March but the Motherwell game was the first victory Falkirk secured despite netting first in five successive matches.[LNB]Flynn said: "It's nice to get an award but I was more happy on Saturday getting that three points that we oh-so-needed, especially with the way other results went.[LNB]"I think it (the award) coincides with the way the team is playing. The team is playing well.[LNB]"It's nice to get an award but it's all about the team."[LNB]Flynn, who rejoined Falkirk from Liverpool in September after initially returning on loan, felt the three points was an overdue reward for their recent form under new manager Steven Pressley.[LNB]"Against Hamilton and St Johnstone we got draws but both games we felt we should have won," Flynn said.[LNB]"Even the Hibs game, it was a 3-1 defeat but it could have been 7-3 to us.[LNB]"But we got a victory and the clean sheet breeds confidence throughout the team.[LNB]"We've had confidence throughout but that win gives you a totally different feeling.[LNB]"'Elvis' (manager Stephen Pressley) is always talking about everyone playing with freedom and no fear and that's what we did on Saturday, and the previous few weeks.[LNB]"Now it's about getting the victories. Hopefully that's the start of us going on a run, we've got some momentum from the last four games."[LNB]Falkirk can wipe out their three-point deficit at the foot of the SPL with victory over St Mirren at home on Saturday.[LNB]With the likes of Burton O'Brien restored to the team following a long injury lay-off, Flynn believes they are in the best shape they have been in all season.[LNB]"We've had a few injuries throughout the season and a few chops and changes, but recently our core of the team has been the same," he said.[LNB]"I suppose with a lot of changes at the start of the season, we took a lot of time to gel but hopefully we're there now.[LNB]"Every game is going to be really difficult but every game is winnable."[LNB]
