Though disappointed with the opening day result, summer signing Yann Songo’o was pleased to make his debut in front of the Iron faithful at the Sands Venue Stadium on Saturday.
Starting against Swindon Town in the curtain raiser, the defensive midfielder was given the nod to start, slotting in front of the back four.
He told iFollow Iron: “It was really nice to make my debut. Everyone at the club has been amazing to me since I joined. The result didn’t come but hopefully in the season, we can get loads of victories and make the fans happy.”
He urged fans to keep calm, with all still to play for in the Sky Bet League Two but felt the Iron should’ve won the game and rued missed chances.
“It was the first game of the season in front of all the fans so we’re disappointed with the result. We had chances to win the game but it was the first match so it’s nothing to panic about,” he explained.
“When it came to the second half, we got on top of the game but they hit us on two counter-attacks. Personally, I feel we deserved to win the game.”
With matches coming thick and fast, Songo’o is looking forward to making his away debut against Cheltenham Town at the weekend, with no time to dwell.
He stated: “I could’ve done much better. Overall, I think the team all together were good but not good enough. Hopefully I can do better and show what I’m all about.
“I’m looking forward to it. This week we’ve been training really hard, getting prepared and the only thing for now is to get the three points.”
