Scunthorpe winger Josh Morris insists the whole squad is itching to deliver a positive result and display at Northampton Town on Saturday.

He believes the test the Cobblers will provide is sure to be a stern one, especially given the departure of manager Rob Page following defeat at Bristol Rovers last weekend.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD ahead of the game, Morris said: “It was a disappointing result on Tuesday (at Oxford in the Checkatrade Trophy), and now it’s up to us to put it right and have a good performance on Saturday.

“It’ll be another tough game. They’ve just parted company with their manager so there will probably be a reaction from them.

“However, we’ll focus on ourselves as usual and look forward to Saturday.”

Morris scored when the two sides met at Glanford Park earlier in the campaign, in a match the 25-year-old felt he and his team-mates could have taken all three points from.

However, with that match in mind, Morris declared the challenge will be tough once again.

“I think we probably should have won the game when we played them here, but of course we didn’t manage to do that,” he stated.

“It’ll be a tough, physical game, so it’s up to us to be on the front foot and get a positive result.

“Of course it’s disappointing what happened on Tuesday night, but we won in the league last weekend.

“Hopefully we can concentrate on that now, that’s our bread and butter, and that’s where our success will be determined.”

United’s top marksman has wasted no time in making his mark in 2017, after scoring successive free kicks in games against Peterborough United and Bury respectively - something he’s elated with.

“Personally it’s nice to get back in the goals and if we’d have won against Peterborough as well as Saturday it would have been nice,” Morris explained.

“The first one (goal) against Peterborough was a good angle I must admit, and the one on Saturday was from a little stranger position.

“There was a bit of space for me to hit the ball into, and I managed to do that and it went straight in.”
