Match Previews

United midfielder Jamie Ness says he's enjoying being back out on the pitch, after a frustrating start to the campaign.

The Scot was pleased to almost complete 90 minutes at Rochdale on Saturday, after getting an hour under his belt in the win over Coventry City.

"I'm just enjoying being back out there, it's been a frustrating start to sit and watch the games. So to get out there and start playing football again is what I want to do," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"It was more than expected obviously, 60 against Coventry was good and then almost the full 90 against Rochdale.

"I felt good, I felt fit. So hopefully I'll be able to carry that on now into the next games."

Looking back at that game at Spotland, Ness feels the Iron were a little unlucky to not take something out of the match after creating chances in both the first and second half.

"I thought we were very well organised, we were very solid. We created some good chances in the first half and the second as well," he said.

"However, it was just one of the games where things didn't go for us and we'll look at why that was this week and prepare for Southend on Saturday."

He's optimistic ahead of this weekend's clash with the Shrimpers and says the team will look to dictate things at Roots Hall.

The midfielder added that things are coming together and that the Iron are not far away from being a good side.

"We'll go down to Southend, have our gameplan and will play how we want to play. So hopefully we can dictate the game," he stated.

"We feel it's all coming together now, so we're looking forward to every game. It doesn’t really matter where it is.

"We're not far away now from looking like a good team. We just need to start putting performances and results on the table."

He says there's been some good away displays so far this season, and said it was disappointing not come away from Colchester with a victory, having been 2-0 up.

"There's been some decent performances away from home. With being 2-0 up at half time against Colchester at half time, it was disappointing not to get the win," he stated.

"The lads know what they need to do, we need to go get three points, be solid and score goals."
