The 45-year-old spoke to ifollow Iron:
“Now we’re back to the bread and butter of the league we want to accumulate points to try and move us up the table.
Orient will be similar, and have been a bit up and down with their results, having some big wins and then suffering the opposite.”
A brace from Lee Novak and a goal from Abo Eisa against the Black Cats handed the Iron a first win in four games.
“We go there confident from Tuesday night and mindful of what we need to do to get the result. We’re in good spirits.”
Orient have played some really good football at times in what I’ve watched, but clearly haven’t had the results they’d have liked.”
Scunthorpe are currently 21st in the League Two table, five points behind the O’s.
“I don’t think we’re in a position where we can underestimate anyone. I’m sure teams at this moment in time, when they’re playing us particularly on their own pitch will think it’s a great opportunity to get three points.
What we’ve got to try and do is put results and performances together that change that view, and make teams fearful of playing us, and wary of the threat we can pose. Saturday is the next chance to do that.”
