Iron striker Paddy Madden feels the 3-0 victory over Colchester United was massive for the team, after losing at Blackpool the week previous.

Madden, in particular, praised United's second half performance as they blew away the visitors with three quickfire goals.

He told The Iron PlayerHD: "It's massive because we haven't been on the best of runs lately. But we went out in the second half much better and when the lads are confident, that's what we can produce.

The Irishman chipped in with two goals of his own, but despite his brace, he revealed he was left feeling a little frustrated after being denied a hat-trick by an offside flag in stoppage time.

Replays suggested the striker was fractionally offside and he admitted he was just pleased to be back amongst the goals.

(On his disallowed goal) "Looking back, it's a tight one. I think I'm onside, the centre half Eastman plays me on. But it's a tough call for the assistant referee, so I won't complain," he said.

"I haven't had my scoring boots on lately, so I'm just happy to get back scoring and it's a relief for me. So hopefully I can go on another run now."

Next up for Madden and United, is a trip to Coventry. And it's a game which he feels the Iron should go into with no fear.

"We need to carry the second half performance into the game next week. And that's what happens when we don't sit off teams and we get in their faces," he added.

"That's what this league is all about, it's about getting in teams faces and not letting them play. And if you do, you'll get chances, and we took them today."

"We've got to have the same approach against Coventry, and not fear them. We can beat anybody in this league on our day."
