Iron striker Kyle Wootton believes taking a point from the home clash with Oldham Athletic will give the squad a confidence boost going into Tuesday night's away game at Walsall.

Wootton came off the bench to score a dramatic late equaliser and the 19-year-old said he felt the goal would come eventually.

He told the Iron PlayerHD: "I thought we did well and I thought when I got the goal we could have nicked it to be honest. But it's a good point and we can take it into Tuesday."

"In the first half I think we needed a bit more tempo in our play. But as the second half went on, we got better and better and I could definitely see a goal coming."

"We've got a brilliant squad of players, so no matter who we call on everyone is ready. Like I said too, I could definitely see a goal coming."

The 88th minute strike was Wootton's first in the current campaign, a tally which he hopes he can add to before the season is out.

The forward stated he isn't getting carried away with his strike, but revealed just how much seeing the ball hit the back of the net meant to him.

"I like a late goal, but I'll take it all day long though because the main thing is the point," he continued.

"There's a lot of games coming up and we have a big squad, but personally I needed that goal."

"It's my first this season, so hopefully I can kick on and get a few more. We'll just have to see what happens."

The United man also spoke about the appointment of Nick Daws as Iron manager, and it's an appointment which pleases Wootton.

"It's been great, we've gone back to basics and everyone has got their head down and took everything on board," he said.

"Everyone in the squad has put a really good shift in and with the performances and results which we've had, you can see it's worked."
