Central defender Charlie Goode believes the Iron can continue to climb the table after recording their first clean sheet of the season.
United beat Shrewsbury Town 1-0 at Glanford Park on Saturday, which was also their first victory at home this campaign.
After collecting the three points, Goode told iFollow Iron: “The main thing was managing to get our first clean sheet of the year, which I think we deserved. We knew it was going to be a tough game because they are hardworking and very physical.
“We knew that it might have taken just one goal and it did. Since I have been here, the home form has been good, however this year we haven’t started so well but that is the first win and we can build on that.”

The defender was also extremely pleased that he played his part to shut Shrewsbury out and get the side’s first clean sheet of the season.
He said: “It is massive because you can go on little runs and pick up more clean sheets now after getting the first one. We have conceded too many goals recently so it is nice to put that right.
“It was going to be one of those games with a lot of aerial battles so I just wanted to be on the front foot and I think I did that. As a team, we worked really hard today to get the three points.”
Under Stuart McCall, the Iron are yet to lose a game and Goode has seen an improvement in the side since his arrival.
The 23-year-old said: “Since the manager has come in, we are unbeaten and we have improved massively. By getting that first clean sheet and first win at home, the confidence is building and we can start flying up the table.”
