United start the weekend in 22nd after results over Easter saw them slip into the relegation zone. 

However, Novak hopes the support from the Iron fans in the last home game of the campaign will spur the team on, as they look to get a positive result against Bradford on Saturday. 

Last time out, the Iron fell to a 4-0 defeat against Novak's former team Charlton at the Valley, but despite the result, the striker was happy with the amount of chances United created against a very strong side. 

The 30-year-old spoke to iFollow Iron ahead of this weekend's match against Bradford, but first of all looked back at the game against Charlton.

He said: "We created chances and on another day, we had enough opportunities to win the game. 

"However, at the end of the day, we didn't do that and Charlton were more clinical than us. They are a team in the play-offs, and they deserve to be there."

Speaking about how the team will look to bounce back on Saturday, Novak added: "We have to win and there's no hiding from that fact. The three points is what we need and that's what we are going to go out there and look to get."

Talking about how important the support from the Iron faithful will be this weekend, Novak continued by saying: "The home support is going to be massive for us. 

"The fans have been brilliant all season and they've stuck with us both home and away.”

Bradford have already had their fate confirmed for next season, as a 2-0 defeat against Coventry City on Good Friday saw them relegated from League One. 

However, despite that, Novak still believes the Bantams will put up a fight.

He stated: "They'll be looking to play with freedom on Saturday.

"It's going to be a tough game because I imagine a lot of the players will be looking to want to stay at the club for next season, and as a result, they will be fighting for their futures.

"Like us, they will want to try and get a win, so hopefully that'll make for quite an open game."
