Iron defender Murray Wallace admitted he was pleased with United’s battling spirit against Oxford, and stated that to take a point was good.However, after the 1-1 home draw, he says there was a feeling of disappointment within the dressing room that the team didn't perform at their best.
Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Wallace said: “It was a pretty poor performance from us to be honest, from start to finish.
“I think we’ve done well to get a point, they had some good chances. Looking at it, I suppose it’s a good point.
“I can’t put my finger on it, I just think we were off it. The way we usually press and are on the front foot wasn’t really there.”
On the whole however, the Scotsman feels there was a lot he and his team-mates could have done better, but insisted everyone must move on.
“It’s a game we felt we could have won,” Wallace stated.
“We did well to get a goal, with Duane (Holmes) scoring a header, but I think we were just off it.
“I’m just frustrated with the performance, because we know how well we can play and we didn’t play near that.”
Scunthorpe now have over a week until their next fixture, when Morecambe visit Glanford Park in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday, December 6.
Wallace feels the break has come at a beneficial time, and explained that it’ll lend the opportunity to reflect on one or two things - including the draw against the U’s.
“It (the break) gives us time to look at the game again, so we can see where we went wrong and get back to our high standards,” he explained.
“It’s a massive month for us. To be fair every month is huge, but we’re going to be playing the teams up and around us.”
