The Iron have leaked 43 goals in their 23 league outings this term to leave them with a goal difference of -19 meaning just basement dwellers Hartlepool, the only team below Laws' outfit, have a worse differential.

Scunthorpe have not kept a clean-sheet since September and Laws admits they must rectify their failings at the back.

"It is like losing an extra point given how tight the league is," Laws told the club's official website.

"We are giving away some silly goals and they could be costly in the end because we are conceding the amount of goals that, at some stage, will affect us.

"We have to stop that - it isn't going to be easy, we know that."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
