Midfielder Matthew Lund is looking forward to a return to former club Burton Albion this weekend, as United look to register their third win in succession.
The 27-year-old knows more than anybody how tough the game will be though, having spent a year on the books of the Brewers and joined Scunthorpe from them last month.
There is plenty for Stuart McCall’s side to be optimistic about though, having made it two wins in a row against Shrewsbury Town last weekend and keeping a first league clean sheet of the season.
Lund, who won the sponsors’ match of the match award, told iFollow Iron: “It gives us a good chance of building the confidence. (Burton’s) game was called off on Saturday so that also gives them time to rest up and get ready, but if we can go there with the right attitude and work hard, we know we’ll have a chance of getting something from the game
“The work rate was brilliant again (at the weekend). Last Saturday (in the victory at AFC Wimbledon) we showed that as well. We needed to get those three points again, especially at home. It keeps that winning streak going. Hopefully we can do that again next weekend as well.”

As well as a first league clean sheet, it was Scunthorpe’s first Glanford Park victory of the campaign and Lund is looking to use that as a building block now.
“Confidence is a huge thing, and if we can get the points at home that makes such a difference. We’ve shown a resilience, hard work and endeavour. We probably should have buried the game earlier, but everyone worked hard,” he added.
“We do work on set-pieces but Josh Morris’ delivery is spot on. He has a few assists now and it’s good for Novs (Lee Novak) to get on the scoresheet again.
“As a team it was very good. If we can carry that on in every game, it gives us the basis and go and get the win.”
