Manager Neil Harris is in up beat mood ahead of the game against Scunthorpe United this weekend.

Speaking to the official site in his pre game press conference, whilst disappointment from the midweek loss to Barnsley was still evident, Harris was adamant that a bad week doesn’t define the season that we can have but undoubtedly it had been a ‘bad week’ for the club with three home losses on the bounce.

He had also clearly been bouyed by the reaction of the players following a meeting they had to clear the air.

‘The players have spoken and there were a lot of honest words. It was a good meeting and we know where we went wrong and how we can improve. I said to the players that we had a great start at Shrewsbury, where we were terrific. We were professional, organised and in control. Since then we’ve had a real bad week. But one bad week doesn’t make a season. It doesn’t make us a bad team and it doesn’t make it a bad football club.’

Harris goes on to say that we have trust in our game plan and our belief but it’s about carrying it out properly and doing ourselves justice, so this week in training is about getting spirits high again and getting everybody right to come out fighting against Scunthorpe this weekend.

He also confirmed that on loan Shane Ferguson had picked up a bad hamstring problem and he would be out of contention for this weekend so there would be at least one change for the game.

‘Young Shane Ferguson is really struggling with a hamstring injury, which is unfortunate because he has come in and done well for us. That will be a forced change. I’m looking for a consistent line-up, if possible, with the odd tweak now and again to freshen things up. There is a lot for me to consider before the game on Saturday.’
