Forward George Miller is looking for the Iron to take confidence from the midweek victory over local rivals Grimsby Town in the Leasing.com Trophy and transfer it to the league.
A brace from Kevin van Veen meant United came away with three points in Group A of their trophy campaign and Miller, his strike partner on the night, believes the squad can take the positives from the game and move it to the encounter with Mansfield on Saturday.
“It was a bit of a tough, scrappy game, but we got through it with a win, which is better than getting beaten,” he said, speaking to iFollow Iron.
“Fingers crossed that’s got the ball rolling now and we can take it into Saturday with hopefully many more (wins) to come over the season. Like any other game, we want to win. We want to get the three points and for us we have to look towards getting our first league win.
“Everyone seemed upbeat coming back into training on Thursday, so that’s good and hopefully we can take that into Saturday.
“Any win is a win, so hopefully we can keep it going. We need to keep doing the simple things right and hopefully that will escalate.”
After commencing for the Iron alongside Kyle Wootton, Miller partnered the Dutchman in midweek, and felt the partnership worked well.
“I enjoyed playing with Kev,” he stated.
“He got his goals and I did all the running (laughs), so can’t complain. I’m really enjoying it as I’m playing games and that’s what I came here to do. I got another 90 minutes in midweek.
“I want to play games and I want to score goals, so hopefully I can keep playing and keep enjoying it. The goal is coming. I’m working hard and doing everything right. I can’t do much more really - one has got to fall for me.
“Chances are being created, I’m just hoping for a few more clear cut ones to fall my way. I want a tap-in to get the ball rolling. Once one is on the board, fingers crossed more will come.
“I’ve just got to keep doing things right and eventually it will happen."
