The high-flying Robins currently top the League Two table but the 21-year-old believes United can get something from the game, as they have proven capable of against some of the division's top teams on other occasions this season.

He told iFollow Iron: “They’re a good team and they’ve got some good players. We’ll do everything we can to get the three points.

“Last Saturday, Cheltenham are doing well in the league and we got three points against them. We had Cambridge, who maybe aren’t as high in the league, and we didn’t win. Anyone can beat anyone.”

Middlesbrough loanee Liddle was disappointed with the result in midweek but was pleased to feature in the game, coming on as a substitute.

He said: “It’s never easy when you lose a game, especially coming off the back of a good win last Saturday. We’ve got another game coming very quickly where we can put Tuesday behind us.

“I’ve enjoyed my short time here so far. This is my second week now. I’m still getting to know all the lads and how they play but they’ve been first class with me.”

He made his debut against Crawley Town in a 3-1 defeat but Liddle is biding his time.

He said: “You can’t expect to walk straight into the team. I played the first game but I knew it was going to be difficult to nail down my position in centre midfield. 

“I started at left wing back where I haven’t played too many games but I’m more than happy to play wherever I can help out.

“I’ve just got to work hard in training, keep pushing and hopefully get more opportunities.”
