Caretaker boss Andy Dawson has insisted his players are up for the fight ahead of Saturday’s crucial clash with Shrewsbury Town.
Scunthorpe travel to Shropshire just two points above the relegation zone and will be looking to turn around their dismal away form against Sam Ricketts’ men, who pulled two points clear of the Iron with a 2-0 win over Southend last weekend.
“We had a chat with the players on Monday morning speaking about how we could do things a little bit better, in addition to the things we did well in the Wimbledon game”, Dawson told the press.
“It’s been a productive, positive week, we are ready to go and I’m looking forward to it.
“The lads have demanded high standards from each other. It gives us a thought at the end of the week, looking at who’s done it right and who is willing to give everything they can for the shirt.”
Dawson also confirmed striker Kevin van Veen is fit to play despite limping off in the second half against Wimbledon, whilst Josh Morris, Jordan Clarke and Matty Lund have all returned to training following long injury lay offs.
“The staff have done a great job with them and they will all have an important part to play before the end of the season”, he added.
