Following a positive start to training this week, Scunthorpe boss Russ Wilcox insists his side will travel to Torquay United with confidence sky-high.

Despite potentially losing three key players, Wilcox believes he has a squad with enough togetherness and desire to make it through the last six games – achieving the ultimate goal of promotion along the way.

“We had a great session on Tuesday,” he told The Iron Player.

“The place is bouncing. We are 24 games unbeaten, so you expect it to be bright. What it is, is bright, but also hard-working. Again, they have been the key words from day one.

“We’ve got a great set of players to work with. Today, they stepped out there, and the atmosphere on the training ground is terrific – even though it was only a point at the weekend.

“Once work starts, they get on with it and graft for each other, like they have done all season really. We’ve just got to keep that going for the last six games. They are difficult games, we need to embrace it – I keep saying that – but it’s a period where we can win games.”

He added: “Looking at the opposition we are playing against, but no disrespect to Torquay. It’s a coupon buster for a lot of people, but we don’t look at it that way. We look to go and get another three points.”

It’s another long trip down south to face the Devon-based side, with the team once again set to travel on Friday morning to their destination.

“It’s a Friday morning one again,” he continued.

“We will be leaving early in the morning on Friday, doing most of our work on Thursday. Once we are down there, we will do a little light session and prepare like we have done when we’ve gone down to Plymouth and Portsmouth.”

He added: “Hopefully we will pick up the same results as we have done in those two long away trips.”
