Previewing Tuesday’s home encounter with Walsall, Duane Holmes is pleased to have an opportunity to get back in action so quickly.

Holmes believes the nature of such a quick turnaround will serve as a positive, with United looking to avenge Saturday’s loss to Shrewsbury Town.

Holmes told The Iron PlayerHD: “That’s the beauty of football.

“You’ve always got the next game to put things right, and that’s what we’ll be looking to do.

“I think it’ll be a good game, with two teams that want to win, and we’re really itching to put things right.

“(Winning 4-1 at Walsall was) the best away performance we’ve had this season, and we’ll be looking to play well again - this time at home.”

The manner in which the Iron conceded against Shrewsbury was, in Holmes’ eyes, a real frustration, but he’s confident things can be set right under the Glanford Park lights.

“We’re really disappointed to give away a goal, and lose the game like that,” Holmes stated.

“It ends our unbeaten home run, which is disappointing, but we get the chance to go again.

“Saturday (against Sheffield United) will come and go like every other game. It’s important we get back on the right track on Tuesday, and see where we can go from there.”

From a personal point of view, the 22-year-old insists whilst he’s been elated to slot back into the side, results are always the first priority ahead of his own achievements.

“Personally I’m happy to be back in the side but, as I always say, it’s about the team all the time,” insisted the American.

“As long as the team is doing well and performing, it doesn't matter who is out there.

“Recently we haven’t been performing to the best of our ability, and I feel we need to put it right on Tuesday.”
