MIDWEEK WIN GAVE US A BOOST

27 November 2015

Iron manager Mark Robins says the midweek victory at Bury gave everyone a boost, and spirits are high ahead of this weekend's encounter with Peterborough.

Robins felt there were things that could have been done better, but stated the level of the performance was still pretty good.

"It's a great win. We've performed pretty well throughout," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"The game was too open, so there were things we can do better and would like to do better in future games.

"The performance and the result from Tuesday night was a tonic and gave everybody a boost - so inevitably spirits are high as you'd expect."

He also was pleased with the resilience which the Iron showed and believes they never really looked like conceding.

Robins also praised the attacking performance of his players, who tested Bury stopper Daniel Bachmann constantly throughout.

"I didn't think we really looked like conceding," he said.

"Even though they had plenty of crosses and balls into the box I thought we dealt with the majority of them really well.

"There was once where we left Leon Clarke alone in the box from a set-play, but we ended up getting the ball out at the second attempt.

"Their goalkeeper got man of the match, and it is testament to the amount of chances we created."

On the injury front, Robins says everyone apart from David Mirfin (who came off with a hamstring injury in midweek which is being assessed) is fit and raring to go against the Posh on Saturday.
