Lund enjoying McCall reunion

31 August 2018

Midfielder Matthew Lund is excited to link up with manager Stuart McCall again ahead of Saturday's trip to Accrington Stanley.

The Iron announced McCall as their new manager on Monday and Lund believes that he will have a positive impact on the squad.
 
Before the away game at the Wham Stadium, Lund sat down for an interview with iFollow Iron.
 
He said: "It has been a tough week, but he (Stuart McCall) has come in and worked us hard and given us what we have needed.
 
"He got us all together and implemented what he wants to bring to the squad.
 
"The training has been intense, but I know he always wants the lads to give 100 per cent."
 
The 27-year-old was previously managed by McCall during a loan spell at Bradford City last season. 
 
"I was only with him for two weeks there, but I enjoyed it because he was positive and always tried to do the right things," said Lund.
 
Reflecting on last Saturday's 2-2 draw against Barnsley, Lund was impressed with the side's reaction to previous results.
 
He said: "We created some chances and made a really good side work. Going 2-0 up, I thought we could hold onto it, but they built up the pressure quite well and we were probably quite unlucky at the end.
 
"I think it was my best performance so far with Scunthorpe and felt better in the three in midfield. 
 
"I was able to get forward, press, work hard for the team and used my running ability well."
 
Lund is now looking ahead to this Saturday's game away at Accrington Stanley.
 
He said: "I have played there a couple of times before with Rochdale. It is not an easy place to go to, so we're going to have to be up for the fight. 
 
"They are a good side so we will have to be fully focused. 
 
"In this league, if you're not at 100 per cent, you will get beat, so we've been focusing on our shape, working as a team and hopefully we can get the three points."
