United winger Josh Morris is happy to be back in league action, after two consecutive fixtures in the cup.

Scunthorpe head to Coventry City on Saturday on the back of two games against Charlton Athletic and Cambridge United respectively, and Morris is relishing the prospect of playing for three points once more.

“It’s nice to get back to the league, after getting a good win on Tuesday night,” Morris told The Iron PlayerHD.

“It’ll be a tough game for us away at Coventry, who are on a good run. However, we’re looking forward to it.

“They’ve won a few games and, as always seems to happen when a new manager comes in, they've had an upturn in form.

“We’re fully aware that it’ll be a tough test for us, it’s a tough place to go. We’ll prepare like we always do, and hopefully get a positive result."

The 25-year-old was rested for Tuesday’s Checkatrade Trophy fixture against the U’s, with Morris saying the break will have done him good.

Now that’s out the way though, League One’s top goalscorer is chomping at the bit to get back out there.

Morris explained: “It was good for me to get a little break, with me playing a lot of games.

"After not playing a lot last season, it was good to take the opportunity to have a bit of a break. I’ve trained and I’m raring to go.

“It’s nice to have a little break here and there. It was only a day or so, but I’m looking forward to Saturday, and that’s the main thing.”

The midfielder had a word on the United supporters also, who he believes have made a significant contribution to the impressive form so far this season.

“It’s a great support from them, like it was on Saturday at Charlton, which is another long trip for the supporters,” he declared.

“It helps us along the way, like at Bury and Chesterfield we had a great away following. It really does help us, especially when we’re on top it puts more pressure on the home teams.
