Iron midfielder Neal Bishop says the team looked more solid and getting a clean sheet will give them something to build on ahead of next week's trip to Colchester.United drew 0-0 with Millwall at Glanford Park on Saturday and Bishop feels it was important to give the fans a response after Wednesday night's defeat.
"The clean sheet was important, especially the way that we've been conceding goals, also with it been so close to Wednesday night," he told The Iron PlayerHD.
"The fans were brilliant and once again got behind us from the off.
"I think there were over 600 fans that went to Wigan and we didn't give them enough of a performance.
"It was important that we gave them a response on Saturday."
Bishop feels the performance was much improved and on another day the result could have been so much different.
"I felt we had enough chances to win the game. They've created a few, but we've created more," he said.
"We've got a clean sheet and we've got to take that into next week's game.
"In general we have looked more solid, It's two home games and two clean sheets."
Looking ahead to the trip to Colchester, the midfielder admits that it'll be a tough test but one that the squad are confident of coming away from with three points.
"Colchester is always a tough place to go, but they were turned over on Saturday, so we've got to go there and take advantage of that," he stated.
