Iron midfielder Gary McSheffrey says the side will be aiming to rectify things when his former side Coventry visit Glanford Park this weekend."(Last Saturday against Blackpool) wasn't a good day for the team and the club. So we'll be looking to rectify that on Saturday," he told The Iron PlayerHD.
"Chance wise, we still should have won the game, but it wasn't the standard that we need to be playing at."
McSheffrey says he can't put his finger on why United haven't got going so far this season.
He also drew attention to the fact that even though good additions have been made over the summer, things haven't been good enough so far.
"We've just not really got going so far and it's not good enough, so we must improve," he said.
"We have made some good additions over the summer, but there were good players here last year - good seasoned professionals who'd done it at this level before.
"You can't really put your finger on it, we just all need to improve and pull our finger out."
The former Sky Blues man is under no illusions as to what challenge faces him and his team-mates this Saturday.
However, he was quick to cast his mind back to the last encounter between the two sides last season. It was a match which the Iron won and he's hoping for more of the same this time round.
"They're a good team, well organised and scoring a lot of goals. Tony Mowbray's got them playing pretty well and they look quite a solid unit," he continued.
"It's going to be another tough game, but they came here last year with quite a good reputation and we beat them. So that's what we'll be looking to do again."
