Iron captain Stephen Dawson says both he and the squad let the fans down in their loss to Wigan Athletic, but will be aiming to put things right when they face Millwall on Saturday.United suffered a 3-0 defeat at the DW Stadium on Wednesday night and Dawson says that the players are determined to put right the wrongs this weekend.
"We've got to start taking responsibility, because it hasn't been good enough," he told The Iron PlayerHD.
"We've let the fans down, the manager and the staff down. We've got to improve.
"We have to go out and put in a positive performance, the good thing is that we're at home and the fans will get behind us like they always do.
"I can only apologise to the fans, because they've spent a lot of money to come all the way from Scunthorpe."
Dawson feels that the side made far too many mistakes and consequently conceded sloppy goals - something which doesn't sit well with the Irishman.
"We need to cut out all these mistakes that we're making. We let them run all over us and we conceded sloppy goals." he said.
"There's been a good long chat in the dressing room, some harsh words have been said and rightly so."
Millwall are the visitors to Glanford Park on Saturday, and it is a visit which the captain says will give the players a chance to get back on track.
While also highlighting that Neil Harris' men will provide a stern test, Dawson says it's one the Iron will be ready for.
"I'm expecting a tough, physical game on Saturday against Millwall," he stated.
"I don't worry about the opposition because we've just got to take care of ourselves.
"As a group we know it's not good enough, but we know that games come thick and fast, which gives us a chance to put things right quickly."
