Iron assistant manager Ned Kelly is hoping for a positive reaction from the side when they travel to Bury on Tuesday night.

United lost their last league outing to play-off chasing Bradford City and will now face another one of the sides in top six.

Kelly is expecting a tough trip to the Shakers, who have been in excellent form at home this season, but was confident of getting a result.

Kelly told The Iron PlayerHD: “The good thing about League One is that you play lots of games so you've got a good opportunity.

“It will be a difficult game against Bury, who are going well, but it's an opportunity to bounce back from the disappointing game against Bradford.”

Until defeat to Bradford, the Iron had been on an excellent run in the league which had seen them climb into the top half.

While admitting he was disappointed with the performance, Kelly paid tribute to Bradford for their performance and expects more of the same at Bury.

He said: “All games are tough, but I thought Bradford were excellent on Saturday and really well organised.

“We've been good of late, up until the weekend, so we look forward to the Bury game.

“They have big threats in certain areas, but we'll relish it. They're particularly good up top and very well organised.

“David Flitcroft has done really well and built on their success from last year. We know they will be disciplined and structured, but we hope to break them down and come away with the three points.”

The Iron have been boosted by the fact that they have no new injury concerns to report, with everyone involved at the weekend coming through unscathed.

That means Mark Robins will have a full squad at his disposal for the trip to Bury, and also has a few days until the loan window closes.

United have taken full advantage of that so far, and Kelly confirmed that they were still looking at ways to improve the squad further in the coming days.

Kelly said: “We will always look to endeavour to do some business. The Chairman is first class with his backing of the gaffer. If we can, then that will be great, but if we can't then so be it.”
