United defender Murray Wallace says to take a point against Walsall on Tuesday was a positive, but he believes the visitors could have got more from the game.

The Scot was part of an Iron defence which prevented the League One promotion chasers from scoring and a clean sheet is something to build on in Wallace's eyes.

He told The Iron PlayerHD: "I think as a team we did really well defensively to shut out Walsall. They're a good team who are at the top of the league and score goals, so to shut them out was pretty good.

"We just needed to be a bit more clinical. We didn't have loads of chances, but we had a couple of chances which we probably could have done better with.

"To pick up points from any of the teams at the top can only give the team confidence. When we play the teams at the top, we always seem to perform better ourselves and up our game."

Murray Wallace will be hoping the Iron can return to winning ways against Gillingham this weekend.

It's just one defeat from seven games for United, but the good run of form is something which the defender doesn't feel anyone should be getting carried away with just yet.

He stated the need to focus on each game as it comes, because this will give Wallace and his team-mates the best chance of finishing the season successfully.

"We've got to just take it one game at a time, because it's out of our hands. So we'll just see and try our best, give good performances and see where it takes us," he said.

"I think we all realise we can compete with the teams at the top and we feel that's where we should be."

Next up for Wallace and the Iron is a home clash with Gillingham on Saturday, a game which the 23-year-old has full belief that United will come out of victorious.

He went on to say, in spite of the visitors' high league position, there's no reason whatsoever for Nick Daws' side to play with any fear.

"They're a good team, but on our day we know we can compete with the best of them. But all we need to do is play better than them on the day," he stated.
