Manager Mark Robins feels the Iron should have beaten Blackpool last Saturday, but says the squad will remain positive ahead of Coventry's visit to Glanford Park this weekend.

Robins highlighted that the margins have been fine so far this season and United could have had more points than they currently have.

"We've had a bit of time to get over the defeat on Saturday, which was a real kick in the teeth when you look at the stats," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"The stats were all for us, they had three shots on goal and they scored from the corner.

"We could have got something from Burton Albion, we should have beaten Colchester and we should have beaten Millwall at home."

He also gave his views on this weekend's visitors and says new manager Tony Mowbray has set the Sky Blues up well.

Robins also hopes the Iron supporters will turn up in their droves, as the team look to get back to winning ways.

"Tony Mowbray's gone in there and set them up well. They've only lost one game away to Walsall and they stood up to a physical challenge from Burton," he said.

"I'm hoping we get good numbers into the stadium and hopefully we can reward the supporters and obviously ourselves with the win that we want."

The boss was keen to stress that the squad will remain positive, especially as he knows that the quality is there to turn things around.

"We'll remain positive, we know we've good players in the building. I know we keep saying it, but they will come good," he stated.

"We have to have that little bit of luck, but you have to make your own luck by being positive.

"There's nothing like getting wins and the only thing that's going to change that momentum is to win football matches, because ultimately that's what it's all about."
