On-loan defender Luke O’Neill praised the good atmosphere amongst the Iron players as they go into the weekend on the back of a 3-0 victory over Gillingham.

The Iron face Colchester on Saturday at Glanford Park, looking to make it two wins in a row for Scunthorpe.

O’Neill is pleased with the atmosphere surrounding the club at the moment and is also very happy with how training has gone this week.

“It’s been great, the intensity in training has been a good quality,” O’Neill told The Iron Player.

“The new manager has come in and put his own stamp on it already, which is good. The boys have taken to it well.”

He continued: “The atmosphere in the club is upbeat; after the win, and with the new gaffer at the club.

“It feels really good around the camp and we are just looking forward to Saturday’s game now to put the performances in to show that really.

“It’s pleasing for myself and everyone in the team that we kept a clean-sheet.

“I think we needed it. We have something good going on and we just got to keep it going. A new manager coming in also, hopefully he can put his stamp on it like he did in training. Good times ahead.”

The Iron have three games in the space of seven days coming up, a scenario O’Neill is pleased about. He said whilst the confidence is high and players have momentum, it is a good opportunity to get points on the board.

He said: “With the confidence and the belief that we have got, I think we can beat anyone on our day. We have just got to turn up on Saturday knowing that we can beat Colchester.

“The training has been good since the new manager has come in. We just need to take that into Saturday to get the three points.

“I always like getting the games thick and fast like we have coming up. We just need to keep the momentum going and hopefully get as many points as possible."
