FULLY FOCUSED AHEAD OF SOUTHEND

12 February 2016

United midfielder Jamie Ness says it was disappointing to have Saturday's match with Doncaster postponed.

However, he states the Iron must go again when they take on Southend this Saturday.

"We were disappointed it got called off so late, because there was no signs of it on the Friday, so it was a bit of a shock for everyone," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"It was probably the right decision to be fair, looking at the rainwater. We've just got to forget about it now, and focus on Southend at the weekend.

"However, we had a good couple of days off, and went again on Monday, and the lads are just itching for a game now."


Jamie Ness believes he's starting to show United fans what he's capable of.

Saturday's clash will be the third time United have faced Phil Brown's side this season, and Ness believes the Iron will be well prepared for what they'll come up against.

He highlighted the visitors will be coming into the game full of confidence, but stated the need for the Iron to take the game to the Shrimpers.

"We kind of know what to expect, they played 4-4-2 the first time, and they've been playing 3-5-2 recently," he said.

"But we know the players and having played against them twice, we'll be well prepared to deal with it on Saturday, and will look to impose our game on them.

"They've been on a good run of form at the moment, so it's going to be difficult.

"They'll come here and try to make it difficult for us, but we've just got to try and play our own game, and do what we did against Colchester in the second half really."

Personally, Ness says he's pleased to be getting a regular run in the starting eleven, following a difficult first half of the campaign. But he believes he's got a lot more to give.

"It was obviously a frustrating first six months of the season, but I'm in a better place now. I'm feeling more comfortable and more confident," he stated.

"I've played the last five games in a row, I don't think I'll be at my best until I've played more games in the side and had a good run.

"But I'm starting to show I can put the performances in, it's just going to take a bit more time to get to where I want to be."
