Winger Gary McSheffrey excelled in his team’s 2-0 victory over Peterborough United at Glanford Park on Good Friday, a result which moved the Iron three points clear of the drop-zone.The midfielder played a hand in both of his team’s goals, with his shot rebounding to Paddy Madden before his side’s first; and his cross then laying Theo Robinson’s goal on for the striker.
Understandably, he was then in a fine mood following the game as he dissected the game with the club’s media outlets.
“It was a very important win,” he told The Iron Player.
“We played well, with a good tempo.
“It was a big performance at a big time – spot on, really.
“This time can make or break your season.”
In addition to result, the player felt that the way in which Scunthorpe played made the result extra-pleasing for he and his teammates.
From the off the team in claret and blue attacked their opponents, and created countless chances for their strikers.
And Paddy Madden, who had gone ten games without a goal, managed to notch his sixteenth strike of the season.
“We dominated the game,” he asserted.
“We’ve played in their half, and all strikers have had good attempts.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if Paddy (Madden) gets his twenty for the season now.
“Kev (van Veen) and Theo (Robinson) also did well."
“He’s got two in two now,” he said, referring to the latter, who is on-loan from Doncaster.
Aside from events at Glanford Park, the former-Premier League player also drew attention to the fact that results elsewhere had gone the Iron’s way.
“A few results went our way today,” he continued.
“We’re delighted with the win - and seeing those results - it’s extra-pleasing.”
