The 23-year-old reflected on the side’s first league win of the season and the maiden clean sheet last weekend, while also stating he felt the team deserved maximum points from the midweek encounter with Oldham Athletic.

“I think we were very unlucky not to take all three points (on Tuesday),” he told iFollow Iron

“I think we deserved it more than they did, but we’ll take the point and move onto the next game.

“It was crucial that we definitely won one (of the two home games). The gaffer told us not to be too down with the result on Tuesday night. You could see the spirit with the lads. To come back from 2-0 down is very good for team spirit.”

He reflected on a first clean sheet of the season in the 3-0 victory over Morecambe last weekend, something the defender felt has been on the horizon following recent performances.

“I think it’s (the first clean sheet) been coming for a few games to be honest,” he stated.

“We’ve had one or two slight mistakes that have been leading to goals. The clean sheet was good for the defence and on Tuesday night they only had two shots and we conceded two goals which is one of those things. It’s a team game at the end of the day and we’ve conceded two goals.”

Walsall are the next opponents for the Iron this coming weekend and, following relegation from League One alongside United, have also endured a slow start to life in the fourth tier. Both will be looking to build on positive performances and points over the last two games.

“It’s another game we can go and win and we’ll be trying our hardest to do that, like we always do,” he continued. 

“I think if we can keep the back door shut, we’ve got more than enough now going forward and we look a threat.

“We’ve got to keep building momentum now. We need to keep getting results and keep building from there.”
