Iron defender Andrew Boyce is confident of winning all three points as his side travel to Crawley on Saturday.The Iron haven’t played since their 2-0 victory over Forest Green Rovers in the FA Cup first round, as their league match against MK Dons was postponed due to international call ups for the opposition.
But Boyce said they have been working hard ahead of the fixture against Crawley and want to win.
Boyce told The Iron Player: “I think it will be a tough game against Crawley, but I feel we have a good chance of getting something. That is what we are working towards so we want to win and we want three points.
“It is always about looking at yourselves. You have a look at the teams you are playing and you look at what they are doing, but ultimately it about ourselves and what we are going to do to win the game, not what you are going to stop them from doing.”
He continued: “Training has been good to be fair. It has been hard, we have worked hard but ultimately we have been working towards the games coming up. A couple of tough games, but overall it has been tough but good.
“It seems a long time since we played, Forest Green was just under two weeks ago now. It has been a long now time, we all want to play so we are itching so looking forward to Saturday.”
The Iron have won their last two games after beating Peterborough 2-1, before defeating Forest Green in the FA Cup, and Boyce said they are good results to build on as they look to make it three in a row at the weekend.
He said: “The victory over Peterborough was a great result and we then won the next game and kept a clean sheet against Forest Green. I know that win was in the FA Cup, but it is two wins on the bounce now and it would be nice to get a third away at Crawley.”
Since his loan spell with Grimsby, Boyce has seen himself become a regular at the back for Scunthorpe and has been paired with both Miguel Llera and Shaun Brisley in recent games. The centre-back is very pleased to be given the chance to play in League One, whilst he is also thinks he has played well with both Llera and Brisley.
He stated: “I’ve loved it to be fair, I have been delighted to get a chance to play and get the shirt. I feel like I have done okay, but there is some room for improvement and that is what I want to do.
“I started playing with Shaun Brisley at the beginning, I feel me and Brisley are similar sort of players to be honest. We complement each other well and then when I played with Llera, he has more experience in his game so I am always listening to what he has to say. Where he needs me and all of that. It is good to play with the other centre-backs."
