Tom Hopper is expecting a difficult challenge when the Iron take on Oxford United at Glanford Park this weekend.

However, the striker is confident he and his team-mates will deliver a performance which is worthy of taking all three points.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Hopper said: “They’ll be coming here full of confidence.

“They (Oxford United) probably see us as a bit of a scalp with us being league leaders, but to us it’s just another game.

“We’ll look at how we need to set up, we’ll do the same preparation - as we always do - and try to get three points again.”

The Iron go into Saturday’s fixture brimming with confidence, after a superb 2-0 away victory at Peterborough United on Tuesday night.

Hopper says he was “delighted” with the win, a victory which he felt showcased the resilience that exists in the squad.

“We were delighted with that victory,” Hopper stated.

“It was another hard-fought victory. We played some really good football and got the lead in the first half.

“We weathered a bit of a storm at times, but I think that’s always going to happen in this league.

“Bish (Neal Bishop) then killed the game off at the end, which was welcome. We’re delighted with the three points.”

Personally, the 22-year-old is happy with how things are going in the current campaign, but admitted he’ll be looking to find the back of the net on a more regular basis.

In saying that, he insisted as long as the team is winning and he continues to contribute, then he’ll be happy.

“To add a few more goals would be nice, but I think I’m contributing in other ways - which is good,” he explained.

“However, I’m feeling fit, I’m feeling strong, and I feel as though I’ve been putting in some good performances of late.”
