United joint caretaker manager Andy Dawson says the Iron will go into their away clash with Fleetwood full of confidence, after the two recent victories over Southend and Millwall respectively.

On the other hand though, Dawson insists Saturday's opponents won't be taken lightly.

He told The Iron PlayerHD: "We'll crack on again, prepare and get ready for another long journey to Fleetwood. But again, coming off the back of two great victories.

"The lads are full of confidence and we're full of positivity. So it's one we can really look forward to, but we know it's going to be a difficult game.

"They've been on a good run of form of late. They've brought different players in, so it'll be about us having a game plan and working out how we're going to go there and get a result."

Andy Dawson and Nick Daws take caretaker charge of the Iron for a fifth game when we visit Fleetwood this weekend.

When asked about what he feels has been the key factor in the Iron's good run of form, Dawson drew attention to the fact that the team have got the little details and margins spot on.

"We talk about to the back four, the goalkeeper, and the rest of the lads, that it's the little details which win you games," he said.

"You can look at the Millwall game, and it's the tiny little details which stopped them from scoring - and then a quality pass and finish which gets you a goal."

Dawson also spoke about the several new additions to the Iron squad. In particular Jim O'Brien, who came off the bench at the Den and had an immediate impact.

As well as O'Brien's impressive cameo though, Dawson praised fellow new loan signing Greg Luer who, like O'Brien, impressed in his first appearance for the club.

"Jim's a bright spark, a bubbly character, as Nick (Daws) has mentioned previously. He knew a few of the lads, so it's easier to come and settle into a new club," he added.

"He came on and produced a good display, ending with a good finish. As did Greg (Luer) and Kyle (Wootton) who came on in the last few minutes.

"As we've said previously, when we look around to the bench and to the players who we can't put on the bench, we're full of quality and good lads who are trying hard to get into the first eleven."
