United midfielder Tommy Rowe says the back-to-back victories is a big plus for he and his fellow team-mates as they go into Saturday's game with Shrewsbury Town.

The Iron produced a dominant display to defeat Oldham Athletic 4-2 last weekend and on-loan Rowe puts the manner of the win down to the work on the training ground.

"It's definitely a big plus for us, the back to back wins. The performance as well was good, but the points push us up the table a bit as well," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"We created a lot of chances and think that was partly to do with the understanding, we do quite a lot of work on shape on the training pitch and we've got leaders that can organise and put you in that position."

Rowe, who made only his second appearance for the Iron on Saturday, says he's really enjoying his stay from Wolverhampton Wanderers so far and feels he couldn't have asked for a better start.

The midfielder is getting back up to full-speed after a lengthy spell on the sidelines with injury, but he stated that he's getting nearer to full fitness.

"It's been brilliant, training's been fantastic, the players, fans, everything, I've really enjoyed it. I couldn’t have asked for a better start," he said.

"The 90 minutes have been brilliant, with obviously not playing for a long time and the second game was a bit better. I felt a lot more comfortable in the early stages.

"I'm getting there, getting nearer to full fitness. I'm just really enjoying it and raring to go for Saturday."

The loanee also previewed Saturday's match at Glanford Park, a match which Rowe highlighted will be tough, but one which the squad are more than capable of winning if they believe in their own ability.

Rowe also revealed just how much he and the rest of the squad want to keep the current run going, as they look to climb the League One table.

"They got a good result and it's going to be a tough game, like they all are at this level. You've got to compete, you've got to be up for it," he insisted.

"The main thing is that we believe in ourselves, that we can go and win another game and make it three wins on the bounce.

"If we go into it full of confidence and playing our own game, I think we can get a good result.

"We want to keep this run going, it's important because confidence breeds confidence and if we can keep this fluency going towards the middle stage of the season, we can pick up the points and get back up the table.”
