DEFENSIVELY WE LOOKED GOOD

24 August 2015

Charlie Goode was encouraged by the clean sheet United kept in their 0-0 home draw against Millwall on Saturday.

The defender felt the Iron created enough opportunities to win the match though.

“We should have won the game, we had a lot of chances. We’ve just got to move onto the next game and hopefully we will get the win,” he told The Iron PlayerHD.

“That was our main target, to get a clean sheet. We had chances to win the game and defensively we looked good.

“Defensively we have done well, and it was much better than Wednesday night (against Wigan)."

It was the young defender's firsteever start as a professional footballer, something he admits he didn’t expect to get so soon into his Iron career.

“It’s always good to get your first start," he said.

"I didn’t expect it too much to be honest, but we got a clean sheet and that’s always my aim.”

Not only would he end the day with his first Football League start, but he’d also receive the man of the match award too.

He said: “It was another thing I didn’t expect, but it’s nice to get that. I think the defence all did well, and any of us could have won it (the MOTM).

“All I can do is work hard in training and hopefully I will get another chance on Saturday.

“Even when you’re not in the team you’ve got to stay focussed and you’ll get your chance, and I got mine at the weekend.”

The match consisted of numerous missed chances, something Goode reflected on after the full-time whistle.

“We’ve had a penalty, we’ve hit the bar twice so realistically we could have won that game two or three-nil," he said. "If we keep it like that we will win a lot of games.

“It was tough, and especially how hot it was at the end of the first half – I was blowing. Second half was a bit better and I’m happy and disappointed with the result.”
