Defender George Taft spoke to iFollow Iron after his side’s 1-0 defeat against Doncaster Rovers in the Emirates FA Cup first round on Saturday.
He added: “With the new gaffer coming in everyone’s got to prove themselves. Everyone’s got to learn how he wants us to play but I thought it was a positive performance in parts of the game.”
"It’s a good opportunity for lads who haven't played in recent weeks to show him what they can do and force their way into the team. It’s good healthy competition for everyone. In football, it can change quickly and we’ve got to adapt and take the positives and go from there.
“He’s come in and told us how he wants us to play and training’s been good. He’s been with all the lads and got us organised and everyone’s raring to go. It’s a boost for us.”
Commenting on preparation for the next game against Rovers in the Papa John's Trophy group stages on Tuesday night, Taft said: "It's another game on Tuesday and a longer week for the manager to assess for Saturday.
“It’s another chance. I'm sure some lads will come in that didn't play on Saturday. They’ll make changes too but people have to show what they can do and try to get in the team for Saturday (against Salford City)."
