Iron defender Charlie Goode felt he and his Scunthorpe teammates were a little unlucky not to get the result they wanted against Charlton Athletic.

United bowed out of the Emirates FA Cup first round with a 3-1 defeat at the Valley and Goode believes, on another day, things could have gone differently.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Goode said: “We started well in the first half an hour and had a few chances.

“We’ve had a lot of chances and we’ve created, which is a good sign. Like we’ve shown this season, we take a lot of those - I think we were just bit unfortunate.

“I thought as soon as we came out in the second half we looked dangerous, up for it, and at 2-1 I thought we would go on and get a replay at least.

“We got it back to 2-1 at the start of the second half and really threw everything at it. We gambled at the end and conceded a third, and it wasn’t our day in the end."

Goode played the full 90 minutes in the clash with the Addicks, and the 21-year-old says he was pleased to get another opportunity to showcase his abilities to manager Graham Alexander.

“I want to play as many games as I can. When I do get my chance I want to try and take it, so hopefully I’ve done quite well,” he explained.

“I’m hoping we can just go from there and see if I can help the team, I want to play a part this season, so hopefully I can play some more games.”

The match saw Luke Williams make his return to first team action following a lengthy injury layoff, a sight Goode was more than pleased to see.

“Luke’s (Williams) a great player, he’s very creative on the ball,” he declared.

“We’ve got such a good squad here, with so many good players, and it’s great to have him back in it. He’s only going to help the team now.

“The competition is very good, it keeps everyone on their toes and he’s a great player to have, as many of the others are here.”
