Alexander won’t change approach ahead of Fleetwood clash

Scunthorpe boss Graham Alexander has insisted that he will not change how his team approach Tuesday night’s game with Fleetwood Town.

The news comes despite overseeing his side crash to a third consecutive league defeat at the weekend.

The Iron were beaten 2-0 by Rotherham at the New York Stadium but Alexander felt his side deserved more despite squandering a number of big chances to get back into the game.

“This is our sticky patch,” Alexander told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.

“We have had three tough fixtures, they have been tough results to take and I don’t think we have got the points rewards we deserve from those games.

“No-one can say we didn’t play well on Saturday but the reality of football is that we have to score – it is simple as that.”

When questioned whether he was starting to feel the pressure following the bad run of form, which has seen his tactics come under fire by some sections of the support, Alexander replied: “I feel pressure all the time and I have lived with it for 30 years.

“There is the pressure to win, pressure to compete and pressure to see off competitors whether you are a player, coach or manager.

“But we are not going to change anything. The only way we are going to improve on the performance on Saturday is by scoring goals so that’s what we have to do.”
