FROM THE DUGOUT

Darrell Clarke: "They have to learn, it's a young group, very, very young group. When things aren't going well, it's about how you respond to that.”

"They're showing me a lot more in training than they are in matches. But you get paid for matches."

Dino Maamria: "We definitely need to start on the front foot tonight, against a Walsall team who are in a similar situation to ourselves.

"Both Scunthorpe and Walsall have been through lots of changes since relegation, like ourselves, and that change is never easy.”
