Iron defender Charlie Goode says Saturday’s upcoming clash with Southend United is sure to be a difficult one, but stated three points is the aim.

Goode believes the fixture at Roots Hall, like any on the road in Sky Bet League One, will be notoriously hard and insisted he and his Scunthorpe team-mates will have to be at their best to get a positive result.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Goode said: “It’s going to be a tough place to go to, but we’ll do what we can to win the game.

“It’ll be a physical game. We played there last season and we had a tough match. Like against a lot of sides in this league, it’s tough - especially away from home.

“We’ll go there and try to get the three points.”

The 21-year-old stated a lot can be taken from last weekend’s comeback victory over Port Vale at Glanford Park.

United came from behind twice to defeat the Valiants 3-2, with Goode explaining that the nature of the win typifies the character which exists within the squad.

“We made it a little bit difficult for ourselves at times, with us going behind twice,” Goode explained.

“However, we showed what we’ve been about all season, and came back and scored three goals in the second half.

“We know we can score goals in this team, and we showed that at the weekend.”

Despite trailing at the interval to Michael Brown’s men, Goode says the belief was always a constant.

“We’ve had that (character) all campaign. We’ve come from behind many times and, fortunately enough, we did it again at the weekend,” he stated.

“Even at half time we spoke about how many times we’ve come back after being 1-0 down at half time this season.

“As defenders we of course want to start keeping clean sheets and make it a bit easier for ourselves.”
