Iron boss Mark Robins says his team must learn to do a proper job following the 2-2 draw with Colchester United at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

His Scunthorpe United side went into the second half one goal to the good but the U’s turned the game on its head with under ten minutes to go, leading 2-1 as the Iron ‘switched off’ before Hakeeb Adelakun snatched an injury time equaliser.

“I’m really not happy and I think we’ve got to learn not to do ‘just enough’ and think we’ve done enough in games,” Robins said.

“We’ve got to go out and play for ninety minutes plus the time that’s added on and do a proper job instead of half a job.

“We switched off for the two goals, absolutely we switched off for the two goals so it puts you on the back foot.

“The supporters come down and they follow us – it’s a long, long way and we know that. They expect at least for us to have a go at teams.

“We sat in and decided we were going to camp in behind the ball and that isn’t us and it isn’t what we set out to do.

“We’ve got to be braver and go at teams like we did to get the equaliser. We forced the equaliser because we’ve been positive.”
