Scott Laird felt the Iron were unlucky to not come away from Gillingham with three points, bearing in mind the number of chances he and his team-mates created.

Laird was speaking after United's 2-1 defeat at the Priestfield Stadium and the full-back stated that the visitors did more than enough to come away victorious.

"We've come to a side that are high on confidence, top of the league and we've dominated the game," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"I think we've created more than enough chances to win more than one game. You can even look at the end of the game and their 'keeper has pulled off a 'worldy'."

The defender bemoaned United's luck in conceding twice, but he did admit that it's the way things have been going this season.

He also insisted that things need to be tightened up defensively going forward.

"They've had two shots on target and scored two goals. I think that's been the story of our season so far," he said.

"We've got to be more ruthless, in terms of keeping those chances out."

Next up for the Iron is a trip to Chesterfield on Saturday and Laird says if the team continue to do the right things, then the results will come.

He also highlighted that United are growing into the season and a positive performance against table toppers Gillingham emphasises this.

"We know that we're slowly coming into the season, we've come to a very good side and created some very good chances and played some good football," he stated.

"If we can go and play football like we have been doing, enjoy ourselves and keep doing what we've done tonight, more often than not we'll win the game."
