Mark Cooper has poured cold water on speculation linking him to Championship outfit Brentford.

The Bees are reportedly considering the Rovers boss after Dean Smith left for Aston Villa.

Cooper insists he hasn't been approached but admitted it's flattering to be linked with the role.

"I don't know anything about it," he said. "It's always nice to get linked to jobs but our focus is fully on Forest Green and trying to get a result tomorrow."

"If you're getting results that always happens. The more times it happens then great because it means you're getting results but it's the players that go out on the pitch and perform so if they're doing that then these things happen."

Rovers travel to Northampton Town tomorrow, kick off 2pm.
