United right back Jordan Clarke thought his side did enough to be rewarded with three points on Monday, as Peterborough United fought back to take a point at Glanford Park.
Josh Morris had given the Iron the lead at the end of the first half, following a wonderfully curled free kick. It was the home side that looked more likely to find a second before the Posh could equalise, but cruelly a cross from the right wing bounced off Charlie Goode’s body to level the scores at 1-1.
“Coming off of an undeserved loss against Bolton, we needed to respond, and I feel like created more than enough chances to do that,” Clarke told The Iron PlayerHD.
“We needed to take them chances and kill of the game when we had the opportunity to, but it’s just unfortunate that they’ve scored late on in the manner that they did.”
Clarke gave credit to Morris, who slotted in at left back in the absence of Harry Toffolo, and felt the side did enough to emerge with all three points.
“In the first half I felt as though we were very comfortable. They had their spells of possession, but I can’t remember too many of their chances in the first half.
“Josh (Morris) has come in and done really well, considering he’s a forward thinking left-sided player.
“He’s had to come in and do the defensive side of things, and I thought he did really well.”
After the Posh equaliser the Iron piled forward to try and re-take the lead, and Clarke himself was a whisker away from doing so, but for a save from Luke McGee which he didn't know too much about.
“I had a really good touch inside the full-back, and I’ve seen him come out so I’ve aimed to put it through his legs.
“When it went through his legs I was half going off to celebrate, and I don’t know what part of his body it’s hit.”
United are back in action on Saturday as they host Bury, and the 25-year-old claimed that the players have full confidence they can bounce back and start another winning streak.
“We’ve been on a great run at home, and that run has continued as we are still undefeated. We just need to go into upcoming games with the mind-set that we need to finish teams off early.”
