On-loan Iron defender Murray Wallace felt his side were unlucky not to get anything out of the game against Rochdale on Saturday.United went down to a 2-1 defeat at Spotland, but Wallace felt Dale didn’t create enough to warrant the two goals they scored.
“I think we did okay but we still conceded two goals, and I don’t think they had enough chances to merit two goals,” he told The Iron PlayerHD.
“Defensively we need to look at what we are doing wrong and why teams are getting so little chances and still scoring goals.
“In a sense we are making the mistakes that gives them chances, we are punishing ourselves.”
When Dale scored their first goal United kept their heads and managed to find a way back into the game through Wallace. However, the Scot thought his team would be the ones to find that all-important winner.
“I felt that after we got the equaliser we would go on and win the game but we conceded two poor goals and it’s punished us,” he said.
“I’m delighted to score but at the end of the day it’s a team game and I’m gutted that we haven’t got the three points because that’s all that matters."
Wallace plays the final match of his initial one-month loan spell against Southend on Saturday, but he says he has loved being a part of the Iron side.
“I’m loving it, loving playing, and it’s a good bunch of lads and they’ve made me feel welcome," he stated.
“Since I’ve been here there has always been the belief in the squad that we can go and win every game and I don’t think it matters to us whether we play at home or away. We see every game as winnable.”
