Midfielder Josh Morris is aiming for a positive result against Lincoln City, with the Iron able to virtually assure progression to the second round of the Checkatrade Trophy with a victory.
United drew the first game of the competition against a Wovles Under-21s side, but emerged with the bonus point in the penalty shoot-out, meaning they could potentially eliminate the Imps with a win at Glanford Park.
Speaking to iFollow Iron, the 27-year-old drew on a number of positives from the game against Luton Town at the weekend, but reaffirmed that United must be at their best against the League Two leaders.
“At times (against Luton) we played quite well," he said.
“Obviously the disappointing thing is that we lost the game. There were a lot of positives to take from the performance and we need to take that forward. Every time we go away from home, we know it’s going to be tough game. That game has gone now - we look at where we can improve and take that forward.”
The encounter against the Imps is the second of three group stage games, with Morris setting his sights further in the competition while still taking it one game at a time.
“It’s quite a long competition to get to the final, but ultimately it’s a chance to play at Wembley, so it’s a big opportunity,” he stated.
“We take each game as it comes and it’s an important one. We’re at home as well, so we want to put a performance on and hopefully score a few goals and win the game.”
Speaking about the opposition, the Iron’s joint-leading goalscorer added: “They’ve done well over the last few years. They came up through the Conference and they’ve won the Checkatrade Trophy.
“They’ve got a good set-up there, so we’re expecting a tough game. They (Danny and Nicky Cowley) have done an awesome job. They've carried it on for more than one season, and they’re doing well again this season.”
Morris has four goals to his name, coupled with five league assists, and is pleased with his current return after recovering from his early-season injury.
He said: “It’s always nice to get on the scoresheet and it’s nice to be contributing with goals and assists. Hopefully that can continue and I can add to the tallies in the next few weeks. I was obviously injured at the start of the season, it’s taken a bit of time to get up-and-running, but now I am, hopefully it continues.”
