United winger Gary McSheffrey felt that the Iron held a deserved lead at Gillingham on Tuesday night, but admitted that it was disappointing to be undone by two set-pieces.

It looked as though McSheffrey and his team-mates were on course for a good away point at the League One table toppers and the midfielder states that something should have been taken from the game.

"We got ourselves ahead and deservedly so, we were in control of the game," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"It's disappointing, two set-pieces, we should be keeping them out and coming away with something."

This weekend's clash sees McSheffrey return to one of his previous sides in Chesterfield, and he says it'll be nice to go back.

"It's a good club, nice people there and a good set of lads. It's always nice to go back to an old place," he said.

On the subject of that game at Proact Stadium, the Iron No 28 says despite the tough test they'll face, it's a game which everyone is looking forward to.

He feels the match will be a good spectacle, as both sides always look to score goals and play football in the right manner.

McSheffrey said: "They've won two on the spin, so they're going to be coming in confident. They've turned a corner and their strikers are scoring goals too.

"It's going to be a tough game, whatever team they put out there, they like to play football. It's a game we look forward to though and we're confident we can go and get something.

"It's got all the makings of a good, open, exciting game and we feel we can always go to places and score goals. So hopefully we can come back with the points."
