Pay on the day at Fleetwood Town

25 January 2019

United face Fleetwood Town at the Highbury Stadium on Saturday, following four wins and one draw in their last five games.

The Manchester United loanee spoke to iFollow Iron ahead of the game about his performances and the increased confidence the team has collectively.

On last weekend’s draw against Sunderland, Borthwick-Jackson said: “I think we should have got more from the game, but a draw is a good result and we are still unbeaten in these last few games.

“I thought we played well and we limited them to two or three chances. We did well on that aspect and we created some for ourselves, which we should have finished off.

“I had a chance at the back post and I fluffed it a little bit, but we created plenty so it is all good signs.”

Debutant Adam Hammill earnt the Iron a point with a stunning goal in the closing stages of the game, and Borthwick-Jackson praised the winger.

He said: “It was a great finish. Some were saying he should have hit it first time, but he has got that quality to take the touch and he stuck it in the top corner.

“We have got quite a bit of attacking threat now so it is good competition for places.”

The defender has also been pleased with the defensive performances from the Iron, having recorded two clean sheets against Wycombe and Peterborough in this run as well.

He said: “We are limiting chances and have tightened up. Hopefully we can continue with that because that has been a big factor in getting results. 

“It’s not just as a back four, but we are doing it as a team now.”

Borthwick-Jackson has started the last ten games for the Iron and he feels he is getting back to his best: “It is always good when you get a run of games.

“I said from the start that when I get a run of games, I play my best football and I think I am getting back to where I feel I can be.”

Ahead of the Fleetwood match, the 21-year-old admitted it will be a tricky test after losing 5-0 to the Cod Army earlier in the season.

“We are going into the game to win it,” said Borthwick-Jackson.

“We have got to be solid and create chances.

“Hopefully with the momentum we have the moment, we can keep it up and continue climbing the table.”
