The noise the fans make could be huge for us

6 May 2017

Murray Wallace was full of praise for his side after Thursday night’s League One Play-Off Semi-Final First Leg encounter with Millwall.

The Scottish centre-half believes the Iron were worthy of their clean sheet, and was happy that the game is still in the balance going into the home leg.

Joe Anyon was forced into a smart save in the first half in the home team’s only major opportunity of the game, despite dominating the play for large parts.

A Josh Morris free-kick was as close as the Iron came, as his set-piece went over the wall, but straight into Jordan Archer’s arms.

“Coming here was never going to be easy,” Wallace told The Iron PlayerHD.

“They’re dangerous from set-pieces and they threw everything at us - long-balls, long-throws and corner kicks.

"However, we we stood up to everything they sent our way.”

The defender believed that the clean sheet would provide a massive confidence boost for the whole team ahead of Sunday’s crunch tie.

He said: “It was massive to keep the clean sheet, but it’s only the away leg. We need to go home and keep a clean sheet there too.”

Wallace was well aware that Millwall will travel to Glanford Park full of confidence too, and expects a tough evening in North Lincolnshire - much like Thursday night.

“We will be playing the same team on Sunday, so it will be tough. The noise that the Scunthorpe fans make could be huge for us," he continued.

Chances were few and far between in the first leg, but Wallace stated that will be something the whole team will look to put right.

“It will be a real test for the whole team. Defensively we need to be switched on, and the lads up top will hopefully get some good chances," he said.
