Scunthorpe United striker Darius Henderson feels the Iron weren't perhaps the better side against Leyton Orient.

He did, however, state they'll have an opportunity to put things right in the replay at Glanford Park.

A goalless draw against the O's means United will have to wait to see if they'll progress to the third round of the Emirates FA Cup, but Henderson feels there are positives to be taken from the stalemate.

"It's a positive. I didn’t think we were the better side today, but we've a chance to put that right in the replay, and hopefully we'll do that," he told TheIron PlayerHD.

"It was a difficult afternoon. Conditions never helped, however I'd say they played the conditions better than we did."

The forward once again was named in the starting eleven, and he's pleased to be getting what he feels are vital minutes under his belt.

He did though however concede he must start finding the back of the net and put in displays which will propel the Iron up the League One table.

"I think my fitness levels are improving, I've needed the starts, I've needed the games," he said.

"I've got to start scoring goals and putting in performances which will help us win." 

Attentions will now turn back to the league for Henderson and his team-mates, as they face a trip to Port Vale next Saturday.

And it's a game which the striker feels the Iron can be successful in, which will subsequently lead to a rise up the standings.

(On Port Vale): "Another difficult game. The past three games they've not really been at their best," he added.

"We'll look to start and climb the table, and hopefully we can do that against Port Vale."
