Scotsman Murray Wallace states the squad will be aiming for three points against Bury, as the Iron look to get back on the winning habit.

Wallace says the frustrations in the two most recent matches will only spur everyone on to ensure maximum points are taken this time around.

Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Wallace said: “We’re looking forward to this game.

“There have been a few disappointing results and, looking at it, we should have probably beaten Peterborough and taken a point against Bolton. We’re looking to bounce back this weekend.

“The last time we played them they were up at the top end of the league. They’ve got some good players, so we’ll just need to look at it as another tough game.”

The 23-year-old did however draw attention to the fact United’s season has been a very strong one so far, and declared that a couple of slightly disappointing results shouldn’t alter that viewpoint.

He believes it’s crucial to keep trusting in the methods which have brought success up until this point, and not deviate from them.

“We’ve got to remind ourselves where we are and what we’ve done so far, and why we’re doing well,” Wallace stated.

“It’s important that we don’t forget that and not let it take our minds off what has been getting us results.

“If you look at our run of games, they have been tough. However, I suppose you can look at any run of matches in this league like that.

“Because of the standards we’ve set ourselves, I think that’s why we’re disappointed, and we’re looking to get back to winning ways.”

With no game since Monday, the squad have been able to take advantage of a rest period, after coming through what’s been a hectic festive calendar.

Speaking on that subject, Wallace feels it definitely will prove to be a benefit for he and his teammates come kick-off on Saturday.

“It’s always nice for us,” he explained.

“It’s not nice having two games in three days, so now that we’ve got a few days rest, we’ll recover right.

“Saturday/Monday is just a little too much, but it’s good we’re back to Saturday games now.”
