Winger Duane Holmes has stated the Iron are likely to face a different kind of test when they lock horns with Peterborough United on Tuesday evening.

The former Huddersfield Town attacker goes into the game full of confidence and continues to focus on himself and his team, although he acknowledged the form the Posh are in going into the fixture.

"They've picked up a bit of form but, like I always say, we will focus on ourselves," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"We feel if we do everything right, we will go there and get a result. Peterborough are a good footballing team. We're going to want to be on the front foot and impose our game on them."

After two successive 1-0 victories over sides in the bottom half of the table, Holmes praised his side's character as they found another way to win against resilient teams.

"The last two games have been something that we've not experienced a lot of so far this season," he continued.

"Especially on Saturday and, fair play to Oldham, they came right at us in the first half and were perhaps fortunate to come in at 0-0 at half time, but we had Luke (Daniels) to thank for that.

"We then came out in the second half a completely different side, created a lot of chances and finally got the breakthrough."

The defensive aspect of United's game is something that has particularly pleased the 22-year-old and his side following two consecutive cleans sheets in the league - meaning that one strike in each of them has proved to be the winner.

"The clean sheets are the big thing and that's what pleases us the most," he stated.

"We said after the game, we don't mind if we're winning 1-0 or the 4 or 5-0's that we've had at home this season, as long as we get the three points and job done again.

"I'm happy to be helping the team at the moment. It's all about the team though, we're on a good run and I hope it continues."
