Iron defender Charlie Goode says it’s crucial to seize the initiative and take all three points from the clash with AFC Wimbledon at Glanford Park.Goode wants to put on a strong display for the home faithful, after two successive away fixtures in Sky Bet League One.
“We’re back at home in front of the fans, so we’ll look to get back to winning ways, and get a little run going now,” Goode told The Iron PlayerHD.
“It’ll be another tough, physical game.
“I remember away from home against them earlier on in the season it was a tough game which we only just won.
“We’ve just got to focus on ourselves, as we do, and get back to winning ways.”
The 21-year-old believes the squad can build on Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Bristol Rovers and, in particular, the second half showing which saw the visitors fight back to earn a point.
“We always go into games wanting to win them,” Goode stated.
“Of course we went in at the break a goal down, got ourselves back in the game and could have nicked it.
“However, I think we’ll look at it and say it was a good point really.
“It was a much better performance in the second half, but we want to come in on Tuesday night and start the game as we finished at the weekend.”
Goode came on in that second period at the Memorial Stadium - replacing David Mirfin, who had to be withdrawn due to illness.
A United defence which included the centre-back defended resolutely after the interval, and Goode declared he was happy with his contribution.
“I always keep myself ready on the bench. I then got the shout, so I was getting myself prepared at half-time,” he explained.
“I just wanted to come on and help the team get something out the game, which I managed to do.”
