MANAGER EYES A RESPONSE

4 December 2015

United manager Mark Robins is eyeing a response from his players at Leyton Orient in the FA Cup second round this weekend.

The Iron boss feels the best way for his players to get back on track after last week's loss to Peterborough is to work hard on the training pitch and get the game out of their systems.

He is confident things will be put right at the Matchroom Stadium this Saturday.

"What we've got to do is get Saturday out of our system as quickly as possible. It's always difficult because it lives long in the memory, and you've got to try and get past it as quickly as you can," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"The only way to do it is get back out on the training field and try to fix the issues. Players don't go out to play poorly - they don't go out to concede goals in the way we conceded them on Saturday."

Robins revealed he's looking for an immediate response in the FA Cup second round clash with the O's, but stated the hosts will be given the respect they duly deserve.

Orient were relegated from League One last season, but Robins still feels they'll provide a real test for the Iron.

He said: "When you have a defeat like we did on Saturday, you want a response and I'm looking for that response from the players for the rest of the week in training, and come the game on Saturday."

"We've got to give them the respect that they're due, because they're a decent side. They went down last year having been fancied to go up."
