Iron forward Tom Hopper says Tuesday's 2-1 defeat to league leaders Gillingham was gutting for everyone involved, but stated there were plenty of positives to take from the performance.

Hopper insisted that the team will look to cut out the defensive errors which cost them against the Gills and if they do so, he feels it will lead to progression up the League One table.

"It was pretty gutting for everyone involved. We played some good stuff actually, throughout the game," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"We went for the win, because obviously we like to have a go and attack. We didn't defend two set-pieces, which we need to do in order to get up this league.

"Morale is still high and we'll take positives from the performance and hopefully eradicate the errors and push on."

The attacker says he's enjoyed being involved in a winning side of late, but he revealed that he now wants to give more on a personal level.

He did though admit that he's been pleased with his recent displays and the level of his game is getting close to where it should be.

"I'm enjoying it and when you're part of a winning team it's even better. Now I'd like to give a bit more from myself, so we'll see how it goes," he said.

"Personally, my performances are now starting to be where I want them to be in the last couple of games."

Ahead of this weekend's visit to Chesterfield, Hopper said the test they will face is sure to be a tough one.

On the other hand, he does feel that if the team plays to it's capabilities then they have a great chance of picking up three points.

"It'll be a good test like is against any team in this league. They'll be hard-working and like any side, they'll always be a tough test," he stated.

"We'll go and play how we want to play and I'm sure that we'll pick up the three points."
