Previewing Saturday’s fixture against Southend at Roots Hall, full-back Scott Wiseman believes the Iron will have to turn in a complete performance in order to take all three points.

Wiseman drew attention to the Shrimpers’ strong record on home turf, and says that needs to be respected.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Wiseman said: “They weren’t on a good run of form at the time, and we capitalised on that when we were on a good run.

“They’ve had a good run since then actually and they’ve been fantastic, so it’ll be a difficult game for us.

“Roots Hall is a tough place to go, and we’ve got to be on it."

Scunthorpe go into this weekend’s game on the back of a superb 3-2 comeback win over Port Vale at Glanford Park last Saturday, and Wiseman was delighted with the spirit shown by the squad.

“We're getting to the point in the season now where it’s not all about performances every week, it’s about grinding those results out,” he stated.

“We’ve got winners in this team.

“I think that’s the most important thing, because when the chips are down, there are lads here who know how to grind it out and get a result - which we’ve shown many times this season.

“Every victory is a victory, and they’re all different.

“It is very satisfying, knowing that we’ve come from there (behind), and it shows a great strength of character.”

The victory over the Valiants saw the Gibraltar international return to the Iron starting line-up, with Wiseman stating his intentions of retaining his spot.

“It’s never nice to not be in the team, but I got my chance and hopefully I took it. We did well and won, so I can’t ask for much more than that really,” declared Wiseman.

“Of course it’s never nice when you get dropped, but I’m a big boy, I’ll take it on the chin and carry on.

“I’m back in the team now, and hopefully I’ll stay there.”
