Paddy Madden says he is enjoying the new style of play Mark Robins has brought to the club.

“I haven’t particularly had to adjust my game as I’m the kind of player who likes to get the ball and run at people,” he said.

“I’m just enjoying playing.”

The 24-year-old says he does not mind where he plays, as long as he is contributing to the team effort. He added: “If the gaffer wants me to do a job for the team – whether it’s on the right wing or left back – I’ll do it.”

New manager Mark Robins has impressed Madden during his first couple of weeks at the club. The striker is particularly enjoying the style of play the former-Huddersfield boss has got the side playing.

“He’s a very good manager and an ex-Premier League striker so he’s more attacking, which is good for us front men,” Madden said.

“As a striker you want chances, and we’ve been creating a lot more lately. The performances are improving and I’m sure we’ll climb up the table.”

Luke Williams made his debut for the Iron against Notts County last weekend. The striker was very pleased with the Middlesbrough loanee’s first appearance in the claret and blue.

“Luke has come in and had a tremendous first game,” he said. “He looks a very good player and I’m looking forward to playing more with him.”

The Irishman says training has been very good this week, despite the cruel 1-0 defeat against the Magpies at the weekend.

“Obviously it’s hard to take the 90th minute goal we conceded on Saturday,” said Madden.

"But we have to take positives out of the way we played. The gaffer has got us prepared and spirits are high.”

The club have had a week to think about Saturday’s encounter with Peterborough, something the squad have all appreciated, according to Madden.

He said: “When games keep building up it’s nice to have a little break, but we’re more than ready to go on Saturday.”

The Posh currently lie fifth in the League One table, and the forward knows it will not be easy for the Iron.

He said: “Peterborough have been up and down League One and the Championship for quite a while now so they’re going to be organised and hard to break down.

“It’s up to us to go there and try and cause an upset.”
