On-loan striker Ivan Toney believes United’s strong form at Glanford Park will be key when Port Vale visit this Saturday.

The 20-year-old drew attention to Scunthorpe’s unbeaten calendar year on home soil and feels it’s crucial he and his team-mates use it to their advantage, both this weekend and moving forward.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Toney said: “Every side in this league is tough, and anyone can beat anyone.

“With that in mind, we’ve got to go with the same mindset as we do in every other game, and get the job done.

“I don’t think we’ve lost at home for over a year, so hopefully we can keep that form going and that should put us in a strong position.

“Everyone will look at that (home form), but on their day anyone can beat anyone, and whoever wants it more will get their rewards.”

Toney admits the postponement of last Saturday’s fixture with Charlton Athletic was tough to take. However, he stated full focus has now shifted to the upcoming encounter with the Valiants.

“It wasn’t nice, with us travelling down to London, but we’ve got to go again when we get that opportunity to get three points,” he stated.

“It seems like a long time since we’ve played a match, but all the boys are on it and can’t wait to play the game.

“You could look at it from both points of view (having an extended rest period). However, regardless of that, we’ve still got to go in with the same mindset, get the three points and move onto the next game.”

After making a brief cameo appearance in the 2-1 away success at his former side Northampton Town, Toney says he’s got a taste for more football.

He also revealed his start to life with United has been thoroughly enjoyable so far, and went on to add that he hopes he can now start chipping in with goals.

Toney explained: “I enjoyed playing against my old team and playing football.

“We got the three points late on in the game as well. Regardless of who it’s against, as long as we get the three points that’s what matters.

“The lads are a great bunch, training has been enjoyable. There are positive vibes around the ground, and it’s a great place to be.

“It’s competitive (the strike force), but I’ve just got to do my job and, when I get the chance, take it with both hands and produce what I can produce.”
