United scored three goals in 14 first-half minutes with Jamie Proctor, Kevin van Veen and Matthew Lund all hitting the target, with Eisa aiming to back the result up with another positive result when the Latics come to town.

Reflecting on the win to iFollow Iron, he said: “It’s good for morale, it’s good for confidence and belief. It’s good to finally get the win.

“There are some games that we’ve dominated but we didn’t have that killer instinct. It’s good that we managed to score three goals and keep a clean sheet as well. It’s great for the strikers and the defenders. We worked really well in the game, but now we have to keep that performance up.

“We looked lively and threatening. We’re obviously still learning about each other and Saturday was the first time we’ve played together as a front four. It was good and there were good early signs, so hopefully we can keep that up.”

An opportunity to back up the first win of the season comes just three days after the first.

“The next win is more crucial, I think,” he stated.

“We need to build on from Saturday and build momentum. We’re looking for the win and to push up the table.

“Oldham are in a similar place to us and for us it would be good to catch the teams who are in front of us.”

On a personal level, Eisa finished by reflecting on his own personal performances of late: “I think there’s still more to come. In a way, I’m happy but there’s still more. 

“I put a lot of pressure on myself. I want to get my first goal and I’m sure that will happen but as long as the team wins, I’m happen.”
