John Lundstram felt that United's 1-1 draw with Bradford City was a fair reflection of how the game panned out.The midfielder was frustrated that his side could not push on and claim all three points, but was pleased to extend Scunthorpe's unbeaten run.
Lundstram told The Iron Player: “I think we were a bit better in the first half than they were, but then they put a fair bit of pressure on us in the second half so it probably was a fair reflection.
“We feel we could have held on to the win really, and that’s the second game that has happened, so that’s a bit disappointing.
“I think both teams had a couple of chances to push on, but it probably was a fair result.”
The draw means that the Iron are now six points clear of the bottom four with only two matches left, meaning only goal difference prevents United from being mathematically safe.
Lundstram said that the side would keep striving to win every match this season and felt they could go into the remaining games with confidence.
He said: “It’s more or less there, but I wouldn’t say for certain as we could still mathematically go down.
“We’ve got a bit of a cushion for ourselves though and we can go into Saturday’s game full of confidence.”
A big factor in that has been the Iron’s home form, where they are unbeaten in six matches, and Lundstram feels it has played a big part.
He said: “It’s definitely helped and there are now a few teams below us so hopefully that should do it for us, but we want to go into the game on Saturday and look to win.”
The on loan midfielder has had his deal extended to the end of the season and he will hope to continue to put in man of the match performances like he did against Bradford.
The youngster has enjoyed his time at the club and is pleased that he has played his part in helping the Iron towards safety, whilst getting first team football under his belt.
Lundstram said: “I’m really happy to have extended the loan and to be involved in first team football. The lads here are a top bunch and I’m happy here.
“It’s nice here and once you play for a club it always holds a special place, so I’m pleased to see the club hopefully staying up, and who knows what the future holds.”
