Scunthorpe United defender Scott Wiseman feels the team did enough to gain victory over Barnsley on Tuesday night.

The Iron were beaten 2-1 in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round, but Wiseman says he thought his side had enough chances in the game to get the victory.

"I thought we did enough in the game to win it, we looked pretty solid and created enough chances," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"We got on top in the game and I thought we'd go on to win it, but it wasn't to be.

"We finished the game really strongly, and I can't remember how many attacks we had towards the end of the second half."

Despite a frustrating few weeks, the former Preston man doesn't feel the squad are that far away from turning things around.

"It is coming, the lads are still positive, but obviously disappointed at the same time," he said.

"It's just a matter of time before the chances go in and we go on to beat some one 3-0.

"Fortunately enough, the gaffer has put together a fantastic group of lads that I've had the pleasure of working with.

"Everybody's behind each other, and everyone's trying to keep in good spirits."

Wiseman returned to the starting eleven against the Tykes, but while he's pleased to be back in the first team fold, he wishes it was in better circumstances.

"I'm always pleased to play, obviously i'm more pleased when we win," he explained.

"More importantantly it's all about the club, and the club moving forward rather than my own performances."

The Iron face Blackpool on Saturday at Glanford Park, a match which the full-back feels United should be eyeing three points from.

"Every game in this league is an opportunity to take three points," he stated.

"But we'll go into that game knowing that we can beat them and beat them comfortably."
