He told iFollow Iron: “It’s a good result. The boys dug in, showed good character and defended really well.

“We seem to be gelling as a unit and that back four look solid. I’ve not had a lot of shots to save.”

Watson pulled off a good save from Clayton Donaldson last week but believes there is still room for improvement in his shot stopping.

“I’ve made a few good saves but against Oldham, I should’ve saved both the goals so that’s disappointing,” he said.

The Iron take on Plymouth in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday. However, he is hoping both sides can put the past behind them after a controversial encounter on the final day of the 2018/19 season.

He said: “I’m looking forward to the atmosphere. As the goalkeeper, I’m going to be the main target for their stick but that’s football – it spurs me on.

“You can’t let it get to you. I didn’t play last year in the game but it was hostile after that so I’m expecting the same.:

Along with the atmosphere, he is expecting a tough test with Plymouth sitting in 12th place but believes the Iron have what it takes.

He continued: “If we perform like we did on Saturday, we’ll do well. They’re a good team and good on the ball. If we play well, we can beat any team in this league.”
