"There's no time for nerves now" - that was the message from striker Paddy Madden after the midweek away loss at Charlton.

That reaction came as he reflected on Tuesday night’s 2-1 defeat at the Valley.

Johnnie Jackson had given the Addicks a first half lead, before a Kevin van Veen equaliser with 20 minutes to go lifted the away side’s spirits. 

It was the Iron who looked more likely to steal all three points, but the hosts were rewarded a 90th minute penalty, and Tony Watt put it out of Luke Daniels' reach to leave the Iron heartbroken.

“In the first half, we weren’t good enough - nowhere near,” Madden told The Iron PlayerHD.

“In the second half, we showed glimpses of what we can do, but again it’s the same result.

“There’s no time for nerves now. It’s the best feeling in the world to be promoted."

Madden said his side will be back at it, looking to put things right on Saturday when United travel to Gillingham.

“It’s disappointing, because we’d got ourselves into such a great position," he concluded.

“We can’t give up now. There’s still a lot of games to go, so we just have to keep going."
