The 27-year-old signed from the Trotters on a permanent basis last month following a successful initial five matches on loan with United.

"I thought I'd be in the stands for it originally (due to being on loan before making the move permanent), but now I've signed on a permanent basic it's a game I'm looking forward to," he told iFollow Iron.

"I know most of the lads there, so I will see some old faces, but it's back to business. It's a football match and we want to go and get the points.

"They're in good form, with three wins in their last three, and we've won our last four too so it should be a good game that can alter the table a bit, pushing us or them upwards, so hopefully it's us.

"They have good wingers and are strong going forward. We need to be on our 'A game' and sharp. They also work hard too. It will be a nice surface as well.

"Anyone can beat anybody in this league. You get some wins together and it boosts your season. We want to keep building and will go for the fifth (win in a row).

"We don't want to get over-confident as we must work hard and continue doing the basics. That's what we've done well and we'll keep doing that."

Saturday saw Scunthorpe make it four league wins in a row for the first time since January 2019, as United returned from three weeks without a full game due to the weather by beating Harrogate Town 3-1 at home.

Taft said: "Though we got the first goal, it was one of those where we started slow defensively, after such a long period without games, but grew into the game and got the three points, and that's the main thing.

"Tonight's going to be a totally different game to Harrogate, so we will look to get it down and play (like Bolton will) too."
