The Coventry City loanee has much to be encouraged about since arriving in North Lincolnshire for the season, highlighting a number of positive aspects within the games he’s been involved in so far.

The missing component has been points on the board, but the 30-year-old is confident going into the game with the Shrimps that United’s fortunes are about to change.

First speaking about his opening weeks with Scunthorpe, he told iFollow Iron: “Results haven’t gone the way we’d have wanted, but it’s been enjoyable to be back playing.

“I enjoy training, we’ve got a good group of lads and staff both on and off the pitch. I think overall, we’ve been good. We’ve dominated long parts of games and it’s been disappointing to not get over the line. We probably haven’t created enough clear cut chances like we should be doing. 

“It’s something we'll continue to work on and once that clicks, we’re going to be in a good place.

“We need to get that momentum. We work hard every day in training and work hard on getting that final little bit, because up to that point I think we’re playing some good stuff. It’s just the final killer ball or creating that clear-cut chance that gets the ball rolling. 

“We just have to keep working hard and hopefully come Saturday we can get that little bit of luck and then use it as a catapult for the rest of the season.”

Last weekend against Mansfield Town, at 0-0, the Iron could have been awarded a penalty when Abo Eisa was felled inside the box. Instead, the attacker was cautioned for alleged simulation by referee John Busby - a moment that could’ve been a turning point in the game.

“Luck can be play a part and it can be a big help,” he continued. 

“You look at last Saturday and maybe it was (a penalty), maybe it wasn’t. On another day, we might get it, score it and it changes the whole complexion of the game.

“We’ve got to force the issue now and really drive things in the right direction. If we force the issue, we can make our own luck to push us on and hopefully that will be the springboard and the catalyst to kick start our season.”
