Weir set for JPT action

3 September 2013

David Weir insists progression in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy is his sole focus, ahead of Tuesday night's clash with Scunthorpe United.


Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Weir remarked: "We want to win every game we play and Tuesday is no different in my opinion.


"The Johnstone Paint Trophy gives us a chance to get more minutes into the legs of certain players and we are striving to create good habits and a winning mentality.


"The next game is always the priority, so we aren't looking beyond Scunthorpe at the moment because they deserve our full respect and attention.


"Because of restrictions in terms of changing the team, it won't be wholesale changes, but we need to utilise our squad, it certainly won't be a case of weakening it.


It is fair to say Scunthorpe have been something of a boggy side for the Blades in recent season and as supporters would expect the Gaffer has done his homework on Brian Laws's men.


Weir added: "Glanford Park is always a tough place to visit and Scunthorpe have started the season well at home.


"It is a small pitch and a tight, compact ground, so that creates another challenge for us to overcome, but we will go there and look to play our game.


"They have got a decent squad and I would certainly expect them to be at the right end of League Two at the end of the season."
