Scholes believes the Carling Cup success has given them extra confidence.
“Winning a trophy is brilliant. It is what we aim to do every season,” said Scholes.
“The Carling Cup may not be a priority when you set out but it is a big tournament these days.
“We wanted to win it. It is another medal and it meant a lot to us.
“It sets us up nicely and hopefully that will kick us on for the rest of the season.”
