MATCH PREVIEW | Brown hoping to build on Bolton performance v Scunthorpe

8 September 2016

Blues Boss previews the trip to Glanford Park...

Phil Brown is hoping his side can build on the battling performance at Bolton Wanderers last time out in their next game at Scunthorpe United this weekend.

Blues travel to Glanford Park having picked up four points in their last two away trips in the league, the last of which a 1-1 draw against the league leaders Bolton.

And Brown highlighted that were many things to build on from that performance going into Saturday’s fixture against the high flying Iron.

“We did take plenty of positives from it (Bolton Wanderers), the main ones were the resilience of the squad.

“I thought we did ever so well, I know they had 22 shots on our goal, but of the 22 I think we got 13 blocks in and that just tells you what these players are all about.

“I’ve always asked them to put their bodies on the line, both offensively and defensively but that was certainly evident from what I witnessed on Saturday.

“So we need to do it again on Saturday; Scunthorpe have started off very well and we’ve started off the same way as last year.

“You need strength of character to go to places like Glanford Park.

“They are flying high and have made a whole host of changes with the new manager coming in at the end of last season.

“It’s going to be a difficult game, no doubts about it, but we’ve got to go with the same mental strength and resilience that we had in abundance at the Macron Stadium last Saturday.”
