Striker Rory Fallon called on his Iron team mates to put little mistakes behind them and turn positive performances into results.The Iron fell to a 2-1 defeat to rivals Doncaster Rovers on Saturday, with the visitors coming from behind to secure victory.
Fallon scored to put United up after 24 minutes, but the Iron conceded when they failed to deal with a dangerous set-piece in their box.
This is the sort of thing that the New Zealand international called on his team mates to eradicate as the club search for much needed victories.
Fallon told The Iron Player: “I thought we played a lot better than last week and kept the ball well.
“We worked a lot on possession and that paid off, but our little mistakes cost us the game today. It’s been what’s happening lately and we have to work to rectify that.”
The Iron enjoyed a good first half and could’ve been further ahead, but were left to rue a couple of lapses of concentration.
The striker was confident that, if the side could continue to work hard to stop these mistakes, they could start to enjoy some success.
He said: “It goes like that when you’re down the bottom, things like that seem to happen to you. You don’t seem to get the luck, but obviously we’ve got to try and change that and concentrate for 90 minutes I know we’ll win games.”
Despite results not going well of late, Fallon has proved to be a shrewd addition to the squad and has hit the ground running.
Fallon made it two in two against Doncaster and was quick to point at how his new team mates had helped him to settle in.
He said: “It’s great to be on the score sheet but disappointing that we didn’t get the points. It’s great to get a goal at home and the lads have been really great with me and Russ as well.
“He’s given me the opportunity and while he picks me I’ll continue to try and do as well as I can.
“I’ve settled in really quick. The lads are a good bunch of lads. I can’t score goals without the team and we have to win as a team and lose as a team.
“It’s been bittersweet. In terms of goal scoring I feel really confident to score, we just need to get those wins.”
This month presents a great opportunity for the Iron to bounce back quickly and start to climb up the League One table with a series of fixtures ahead.
Fallon felt they could start to put that right on Tuesday at home to Notts County in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
He said: “Hopefully we can try and rectify this game. Obviously the league is our bread and butter.
“It’s disappointing that we haven’t got a point out of the game today. Every game we play we just have to try and win as many as we can.”
