The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Joshua Richards

MARK Robins is urg­ing his troops to keep up the per­for­mances af­ter the Scun­thorpe boss was named the Sky Bet League One man­ager of the month for Oc­to­ber.

It was a month to re­mem­ber for fans of the Iron, as five wins from six games saw them climb out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone and up to tenth.

Their only de­feat came at high-fly­ing Gillingham, while Robins’ side man­aged to find the net in ev­ery game in Oc­to­ber, in­clud­ing 4-2 and 3-0 vic­to­ries on the road at Old­ham and Chester­field re­spec­tively.

Scun­thorpe are now just four points off a play-off place and Robins said: “It’s pleas­ing to have won the award. It is tes­ta­ment to the play­ers’ per­for­mances and the sup­port of the chair­man, di­rec­tors and staff. The fans have been ex­cel­lent too.

“We picked up a cou­ple of de­cent re­sults at the start of the month and have just car­ried on in the same vein.

“We’re in a rea­son­able po­si­tion now, where we can fo­cus and re­ally kick on. We have to carry on mov­ing for­ward to­gether.”
