Harry Toffolo is itching to get back to winning ways in United’s home clash with Rochdale on Tuesday night.

The Norwich City loanee feels just one victory would set he and his team-mates back on course, and states the Iron are fully focused on that.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Toffolo said: “We’ve got to pick each other up, and it’s now about us standing up as men. 

“We’re looking to win a game, then win the next one and keep that form going. I’m sure if we can get a win against Rochdale that it’s going to start trickling.”

Toffolo is excited to be back at Glanford Park once more, and playing for a Scunthorpe faithful who he says deserve a positive result.

“The lads are positive, and we’re looking forward to a game against Rochdale which we know is going to be good,” stated Toffolo.

“It’s good to get in front of the home fans, and give them something back for what’s happened in the last nine games.”

The 21-year-old takes heart from Saturday’s 3-2 reverse at the hands of Gillingham - a game he believes could and maybe should have turned out much differently.

However he admitted little can be done about the past, it’s the future that matters - starting with tonight’s fixture.

He explained: “We played very well in that game, and we had some of the best passages of play that we’ve had for a while.

“For 75 minutes we were fantastic and it was some of the best football I’ve been involved in here in my time so far.

“The confidence is there, although it may have looked a bit shot in the last 15 minutes. Up until that point, things were up to where they were before the Christmas period.

“Every one of those boys are mates in that dressing room, and you’ve got to look at each other and be honest with each other.”

Personally, Toffolo explained there’s a lot to be taken from his experience so far but, at the same time, insisted his goals stretch vastly further than just development alone.

“For me it’s a massive learning curve,” he revealed.

“However, I’m not just here to learn, I’m here to represent the football club, win games, and I want to get Scunthorpe promoted.

“It’s not about me going back to Norwich at the end of the season - I want to get this club promoted.

“It holds a good place in my heart, because they’ve been really great to me since I’ve been here. The lads are great, the staff are, and the fans have been really good to me also.

“It’s about me giving something back to them and giving them something to cheer at the end of the season.”
