After playing three-quarters of Saturday’s fixture against Gillingham, midfielder Jamie Ness is now aiming to have a significant role in United’s league run-in.
Ness completed 75 minutes in the game at the MEMS Priestfield Stadium as part of a midfield three that also consisted of Matt Crooks and skipper Stephen Dawson.
The Scotsman says it was enjoyable to be back out on the field once more, and added he hopes he can feature in the midweek encounter with Rochdale at Glanford Park.
Speaking to The Iron PlayerHD, Ness said: “To be back in the team felt good, so hopefully I can kick on now, play the remaining matches, and get us to where we want to be.
“I enjoyed it. When I came in for the Walsall game it was my first league start of the season, and I was blowing a little by the second half.
“On Saturday I felt really good. I managed to get 75 minutes under my belt, so hopefully I can be involved again, and do well.”
Assessing the challenge which Keith Hill’s side will pose on Tuesday night, Ness stated the Iron are fully aware of the test they’ll face, but stated it’s one they’re relishing.
“They’re well organised, and they look to get the ball in behind you as much as they can,” Ness declared.
“We know what we’re going to be up against, so we’ll be prepared for that, and we’ll look to impose ourselves on them.
“We’re not looking down, we’re looking up. We know that we need to kick on now and pick up some form, heading into the last few games.”
Ness believes he and his team-mates’ luck will turn, simply because of the quality of football which they’re playing currently.
“We know if we keep performing well, and we perform well for 90 minutes then the results are going to turn,” he stated.
“If you keep doing the right things, then eventually it’ll pay off for you.
“We’ve had a bit of bad luck in the past few weeks, but we’re doing the right things, we’re putting in the hard work, and that will pay off for us in the end.”
