Looking back over the recent week’s results, Iron defender Murray Wallace believes the team has performed well.

Though Wallace believes United have missed out to take maximum points on some occasions, he stated the overriding emotion within the squad is positivity.

He told The Iron PlayerHD: “I feel like we’ve done really well as a team. We had a good win against Doncaster and it’s been a little frustrating with the draws we’ve had, because we feel we could have taken more from them. However, overall it’s been positive.

“It’s been a real team effort, starting from the front with Paddy (Madden) and Hops (Tom Hopper). That’s why we’re keeping clean sheets, because they’re pressing and everybody is closing down after them.

“It was sort of our own undoing, with regards to the goals we conceded (at Shrewsbury). We’ve had a look at them again and we’re a bit frustrated, because there are small things we can do to cut out those mistakes.”

The Iron host Chesterfield at Glanford Park this Saturday and the Scot is hoping for a repeat of the reverse fixture back in October, where United emerged 3-0 victors at the Proact Stadium.

Wallace says everything in the lead-up to the game has gone well, with a full week’s preparation being a real bonus.

“If we could repeat the result we had at their place earlier on in the season, that’d be nice - three goals, a clean sheet and i’m sure everybody will be happy,” he said.

“After having five games in two weeks, we’re back to a normal, full week’s preparation. Which has been good. Everybody’s feeling refreshed and ready to go.

“Nick (Daws) and Andy (Dawson) have prepared us right, we’ve done our recovery right and they’ve managed the training right, so we’re raring to go.”

Despite the Spireites’ struggles this campaign, Wallace highlighted the visitors will coming to Glanford Park with the sole intention of taking three points.

However, the defender revealed how the Iron have been focusing on how to get a positive result against Danny Wilson’s side.

“It’s this time of year where teams down the bottom of the table really start to scrap for survival and in turn they start picking up some good results," he stated.

“Chesterfield will be in that same mentality where they don’t think they’re safe and they will be doing everything they can to try and get some points.

“We’ve done a few bits on the training ground, focusing on how they’ll maybe come and sit in on us and get men behind the ball. So it might be hard to break them down, but we’ll be working on ways to do that.”
