Iron midfielder Gary McSheffrey feels that his side were unlucky to lose 2-1 at Rochdale on Saturday.He added that he felt United were comfortable in the game and that the home side weren't creating good enough opportunities to hurt them.
"We feel we've got ourselves back in the game, we've scored a goal and we've created the better chances," he told The Iron PlayerHD.
"Out on the pitch it felt comfortable, it didn't feel as though they were creating really good chances. They were just sustaining a bit of pressure."
"On another day we could have scored four, but we can't keep saying could have and should have. The interviews after the game have got to be positive," he said.
"But we want to be talking about the goals we've scored, not the ‘what if's’ and the chances we had.
"It would be a huge concern if we weren’t creating anything, but we have been. We've just got to sharpen up in both boxes."
Next up for the Iron is a trip to Roots Hall to face Southend. A trip which the midfielder says the team will be looking to take three points from.
He also insisted that everyone will be working hard on the training ground this week, in order to put things right once again.
"They're a decent side, they've got experience throughout the team. When we played them in League Two a couple of years ago they were a good team," he explained.
"We fear no one and that's the way it should be. So we'll go there and try to get the points. It's as simple as that.
"Again we're talking about a defeat, so we need to address it and work hard this week on the training ground."
