Scunthorpe Scorpions: We can hold our heads high, says Rob Godfrey
Whether they get through to the play-off final or not, Rob Godfrey says the Scorpions should be proud of their efforts this season.
It has already been an historic year in the club's history, having finished second in the regular league table and runners-up in the Premier League Pairs.
And Godfrey was particularly impressed with the spirit shown by his depleted team over the past weekend as they kept their final hopes alive with some great results.
"We've been kicked big style and came out fighting," said the Scunthorpe promoter, who saw Josh Auty and Nick Morris pull out through injury just 24 hours before Friday's trip to Edinburgh.

"The chips were really, really down on Thursday night and we came out fighting.
"We had the bulldog spirit in the whole team and amongst the guests, and we fought for every point.
"Whether we go any further or not, we can hold our heads up and be proud."
Scunthorpe must wait until October 19 for Workington and Edinburgh to complete the remaining two fixtures, but Godfrey is remaining positive about the outcome.
"It's absolutely frustrating we have to wait so long and crazy we've got to wait so long," he said.
"I would say it would be home wins in both of them.
"The form book says Workington have never done any good at Edinburgh and vice versa.
"We have to hope the form book's right.
"We've got to take comfort from the fact we've beaten them both on aggregate and our race points average is pretty good (should the overall points be tied).
"If you were a betting man you'd bet on us, but you never know.
"I just hope there's no slip-ups from those two meetings. It's out of our hands but we've got to believe we've done enough."
