He admits he has been pleasantly surprised by the quality possessed by his new team-mates since arriving here following his return from international duty with England at the recent Under 20 World Cup.
Gordon told Peterborough Today: "I knew of a few of the players before I arrived here, but the quality the lads show day in, day out has really surprised me.
"We have some top players here and I don't see any reason why we can't do well.
"The big difference between Peterborough and Scunthorpe is that we play much more football then they did while I was there.
"That's obviously a big strength of the lads here and it's something we need to carry on doing.
"If we continue to play to the level we have shown so far, we should be able to stay out of trouble."
