Iron defender Andrew Boyce has looked ahead to Saturday's National League home fixture against Notts County (12.30pm kick-off).
After what has been a busy week at the club to say the least, Boyce believes it will be good to focus on the game ahead on Saturday: “We’ve got a big game against a very good side. We’ve had a good week's training, and we’ve been in every day looking at how we’re going to play and what we can do to hurt them and suppress them. It’s been a good week and it’s a big game coming up.”
Despite the changes off-field, Boyce says that the lads have stayed professional throughout the week, adding: “Nelse (interim first team manager Michael Nelson) said it’d be easy for us to go through the motions, but we haven’t been, and he praised us this morning for our professionalism and the way we’ve trained this week.”
He went on to talk more about the importance of the Iron supporters, adding: “They’re massive. When you come to Glanford Park it’s a small pitch, and everyone’s on top of you, so you can hear everything. When they’re behind us, and it’s rocking, it’s a good place to play.
“If the fans are behind you then that’s only going to take you one way. However, as I’ve said before, we as players need to go out there and give them something to get behind. It’s not been good enough of late, well all season to be honest, but there’s a lot of games left and we’ve got to believe, work together, and work towards moving up the table.”
