Iron loanee Tommy Rowe states it was difficult to sit out last weekend's FA Cup victory over Southend, but he feels the break from action will have been a benefit to him.

Rowe was ineligible against the Shrimpers and he says it was just one of those weeks that he had to get through.

"It's been one of those weeks, where you've just got to get your head through. Initially I was up for playing in the cup and then found out that I wasn’t able to," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"Obviously the rest is probably good, seeing as I've played six games in one month and I haven't played for so long."

The midfielder recently extended his loan spell with United and he's been delighted with how his stay has gone so far.

"All I can say is that I've enjoyed every minute of it. I've got the best out of myself from the group of players that I've been around," he said.

"I find it easy to get my natural game out, with the way that we play. The manager gives me a bit of a license in there to first and foremost defend, and then when I'm on the ball I can go and create."

Ahead of this weekend's trip to Swindon, Rowe gave his thoughts on what he feels, despite the Robins' poor start to the campaign, will be a tough test.

He also highlighted the importance of backing up the victories which the Iron enjoyed in October, with much more of the same in November.

"It will be a tough game, they're a very good team. I know they like to pass the ball well and play a good brand of football," he stated.

"They're going through a bit of a transition at the minute in terms of management, but they've had a lot of success of the years.

"Ultimately, our frame of mind doesn't change. We've got to go there and expect to win, but earn the right first. Do the right things first and then hopefully come away with the points.

"We've got another big month in November now, where we need to kick on and go again."
