United centre-back Murray Wallace highlighted there’s everything to play for as he and his team-mates enter the final ten games of the campaign.
Wallace says everyone, including himself, is striving to reach the levels which were attained previously - starting with this weekend’s trip to Gillingham.
Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Wallace declared: “There’s another ten games, and we’ll try and get as many points as we can from those.
“We’ve just got to get back to our own performances, and get the bar back to where we set it.”
Tuesday night’s narrow loss against Charlton Athletic was a sign in Wallace’s eyes that the Iron are gradually getting somewhere near where they’d like to be.
However, the Scotsman is more concerned about putting points on the board and he believes the positive results will soon return.
The 24-year-old feels it’s a case of both being a little tighter defensively and more clinical in front of goal. If Scunthorpe can marry the two together, then Wallace is adamant the wins will come.
“We’ve got to take some positives from the way we performed. At the end of the day it’s about the results though, and we need to cut out conceding goals,” he stated.
“Maybe in the games before we haven’t looked like we can run over teams like we have in the last couple.
“It’s a positive that we’re getting some confidence to actually go out and play good football.
“We’re of course disappointed to not get anything from the game. We certainly felt there was something in the game for us.
“They didn’t really have many shots, so it’s frustrating that they’ve scored two goals and not really put us under much pressure.
“I thought in the second half we put them under some real pressure, so to come away with nothing was a bit frustrating.”
