New signing Murray Wallace is looking for games and success in his loan spell with the Iron.

The defender joined Scunthorpe on a 28-day loan from Huddersfield Town and will initially available for United’s six games in that period, starting with a visit to Colchester United on Saturday.

The move also sees him re-establish a working link with manager Mark Robins, with the former Manchester United player managing the Terriers between February 2013 and August 2014.

“I’m delighted to be here,” he told The Iron PlayerHD.

“I’m really looking forward to playing some games. It’s nice to link up again with Mark (Robins) and I’m really looking forward to getting going.”

The left-footed defender arrives with a wealth of experience in the Championship and despite being relatively young at just 22-years-of-age, Murray is confident he can bring more experience to the Iron backline.

“I’m not sure how many games I’ve played (in the Championship), but I know it is a few,” he continued.

“I’m just looking for a consistent run of games as I’ve been in and out and it has been a little bit up and down. I’m looking for a little bit of consistency. I’m strong in the air and can play out from the back.

“I like to think I’ve got a reasonable bit of pace and hopefully I can bring something to the team.

“It’s all about winning some games, getting points on the board and helping Scunthorpe get up the table and also helping Mark out. He’s brought me in here, so I’m obviously going to repay the faith.

“The fact I played the majority of my Huddersfield games under Mark shows the faith and confidence he has in me.”

The new signing is already looking ahead to the weekend’s game against Colchester and is always looking to learn more about his first opponent and more about the league as a whole.

“I’ve played them in a pre-season game before,” he stated.

“Any away game is a tough one. We have to go out and play our best and get a result. When I signed for Huddersfield they were League One, but they were in the Championship when I joined the team at the end of that season, so I’ve only ever come across League One clubs in cup matches.

“I just want to play as best as I can and hopefully that will be good enough.”
