Speaking ahead of Saturday’s home fixture against Fleetwood Town, Iron winger Josh Morris says every member of the squad is intent on getting back on track.

The 25-year-old insisted there’s no need for any panic despite one or two frustrating results, and states full focus is on taking three points from the clash with Uwe Rosler’s side.

Morris told The Iron PlayerHD: “You’re going to get tough times in the season. It’s up to us to stand up and put performances on when it matters.

“There’s a good group of lads in the changing room and, along with the staff, we know what we need to do. 

“We wouldn’t be where we are in the league if we didn’t have an honest bunch of lads. It’s up to us to put a performance on, and get three points.

“There’s a lot of football left to be played, and a lot of important games for us - which is the main thing.

“No-one likes losing games, but we’re going to be okay.”

The 25-year-old declared he and his team-mates are relishing the opportunity to take on a Fleetwood side who sit just one place below Scunthorpe in the Sky Bet League One standings.

“With recent results it’s a perfect game for us in a way,” he stated.

“We’ve got to take confidence from where we are in the league table, and concentrate on the next game.

“Enough has been said, we just need to go and do it now, and get a performance and a result to match.”

On a personal note, things just continue to go from strength to strength for Morris, with United’s number 11 bringing up a milestone of 20 goals in all competitions this season against AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night.

While he was evidently pleased to have reached the landmark, Morris as always was keen to stress results outweigh individual success.

“It’s of course nice to get the 20th - which is a big thing for me,” Morris explained.

“However, it would have been nice to get the three points regardless of that to be honest.

“We’ve just turned into March, so it’s good to get that so early on in the season I suppose. Hopefully I can keep going with that, and we can get some more positive results on the board.”
