The main thing was the points

15 April 2017

Ivan Toney felt he and his Scunthorpe team-mates turned in a professional display to defeat MK Dons.

The United frontman’s first half header proved enough for all three points at Stadium MK, in a game which he explained the visitors had to show a great deal of discipline in.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Toney said: “It was always going to be tough coming here.

“The main thing we wanted to get was the three points, and we managed to do that. We had to sit behind the ball and let them play in front of us, but they didn’t really hurt us.

“They had a lot of the ball, and you’ve got to be disciplined. We all did our jobs correctly, and they were not going to hurt us by playing in front.

“It’s great for the defenders to get that (back-to-back clean sheets), and we’ll take the positives from that into the next game.”

Reflecting on his strike, the Newcastle loanee paid credit to Josh Morris, who teed up Toney with an exquisite corner from the right.

Personally, the 21-year-old was delighted to get on the scoresheet once more, and he’s got his eyes set on more goals before the season is out.

“He’s (Josh Morris) got a wand of a left foot. He always puts the ball in a dangerous area, and you’ve just got to go and attack it,” he explained.

“All strikers want to do is score goals, and it of course helped towards the win. I’m grateful to do that, so hopefully I can take that into the next game and get another goal.”

Just three games now remain of the Sky Bet League One season but, with Chesterfield to come on Monday at Glanford Park. Toney states the squad are taking each match as it comes.

“Every game we play now is like a cup final,” stated Toney.

“We’ve got to take the positives into the game (against Chesterfield), and hopefully we'll get what we need. 

“All we’ve got to do now is concentrate on ourselves, and hopefully we can win our games - which is the main thing we’ll be looking to do.”
