5 April 2019

Striker Kevin van Veen doesn’t care if it is “pretty or ugly” on Saturday, as long as the Iron record a victory when they travel to the New Meadow to face Shrewsbury.

Pay on the day at Shrewsbury Town

The Dutchman made a return from a two-game suspension last weekend versus AFC Wimbledon, in a match United lost 2-1. 

Hoping to rectify that result against Salop, van Veen gave his pre-match thoughts to iFollow Iron.

“It was nice to get out there, but on the other hand it wasn’t because it was a frustrating afternoon,” the 27-year-old said on his return to the side.

“I was searching for space and tried to get on the ball, but they were sitting quite deep and it was quite tough to break through them.

“It was a frustrating game overall, but it was nice to be back.”

The Iron are 19th in Sky Bet League One with six games left to play and van Veen recognises the importance of not just this encounter, but all of the remaining matches. 

The side will make the journey to Shrewsbury on Saturday, who are four places and two points above Scunthorpe. 

Van Veen said: “Every game is big and it will be great to get three points against Shrewsbury. 

“There are a lot of teams in the relegation battle, but I think we need to go out there, no worries in our head, go at them and try to create and score as much as we can. 

“They are fighting for it and we are fighting for it. 

“For us, it is very important to just get the three points.

“I don’t care if it is pretty or ugly, it doesn’t matter, as long as we get the three points.”
