Iron boss Mark Robins was delighted to see his side secure a 2-0 victory against Peterborough on Good Friday.

Goals from Paddy Madden and Theo Robinson secured a win that the Scunthorpe manager had felt had been just around the corner for his side.

The win moves the Iron back up to 17th and Robins hoped that his side could take confidence from their recent displays and push themselves clear of the bottom four.

Robins told The Iron Player: “I think when you go the amount of games we've gone without winning a game it can affect your confidence, but the lads have been good and stuck to their guns and the wins been coming.

“There's very little between winning and losing at any level, but this level has been unbelievable this year.

“It's a case of small things costing you the game and also winning you games, so we've got to be mindful of that.

“We've still got a lot of good games coming up and we'll look forward to the game on Tuesday against MK Dons.

“I think the momentum has been there since last week because we've come from a goal down and salvaged a point from that, which is a big point.”

The Iron boss was also delighted to see his side keep a clean sheet against a team that are pushing for a play-off space, despite having to reshuffle the backline in the second half.

Stand-in captain Niall Canavan went off midway through the half with a nasty blow to his head, with Andrew Boyce replacing him at centre back.

The Iron kept a clean sheet though, pleasing Robins, who hoped that he would be able to have the defender’s services for Tuesday’s clash at MK Dons, while also hoping Neal Bishop would make a return in the coming weeks.

Robins said: “It's a bad cut and he's been off for a scan, which I'm hoping shows it's a superficial cut so we've just got to wait and see for that information.

“Primarily, I'm pleased with everything that we've done today and the work we've put in. We hope that Niall can come and join the others and is okay.

“I’m hoping to have Neal Bishop back in the next week or so, which will help us and gives a better and stronger feel.”
