After signing a new deal, Neal Bishop is looking forward to finishing the campaign strongly to stand the Iron in good stead for 2016-17.

The midfielder has missed just three games all season and was rewarded with a one-year extension to his current deal, but remains fully focused on the final four games of this term - starting with Bury on Tuesday night.

"I'm pleased and it's good to get it sorted," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"Every season there seems to be more and more out of contract and you want to sign for a club that is forward-thinking and, signing again for Scunthorpe, I have done that.

"I would have hated to have walked away without achieving what I came here to do. I want to be a part of something special here and you look around Glanford Park and see pictures of past promotions and that has to be our aim. We want to create that memory here.

"We have the majority of players under contract for next season and a great number of young players. It bodes well for next season.

"I'm obviously delighted, but I'm not here to win contracts, I'm here to win more than that. It's all looking positive going forward."

Looking at the Bury game, the Iron come into it on the back of a tough 3-2 away victory at Crewe and will face a confident opponent with the Shakers winning the last two games.

"It was a strange game in many ways (against Crewe)," he continued.

"It wasn't our best performance of the season by any stretch of the imagination but to score three goals away from home and to win when you're not playing well is a good quality to have.

"Anything less than our best is not good enough and our season does not end until after the final game.

"We want to continue what we are doing at Glanford Park. It's where we need to pick up the majority of our points and we want to make the place a fortress.

"We're on a good run and we want to keep that going as it will lead us nicely into next season."
