Saturday’s match saw the Iron lose 2-0 at home to Walsall, but the 23-year-old is hopeful the Iron can get a hard-earned three points against the promotion-seeking Exiles.

Reacting to the previous match, he said: “It was a disappointing result, the last few performances haven’t been good enough - we know that. We need to try to put it right on Tuesday now.

“We want to focus on our performances, we don’t want to rely on other teams dropping points. We want to focus on us getting as many points as we can."

Looking positively to Tuesday night's game, Beestin said: “We know we’ve got it in ourselves to win, like those four wins in a row we had (in January and February). We know we have enough quality in the team.

"Tuesday’s game will be tough as they’re a big side. We just have to try to match them up and be as strong, and run as much as they do.

“We know it’s League Two so the pitches aren’t going to be the best. We do have enough players and quality to get in there and battle.”

Discussing the remainder of the season, which is two more games after Tuesday, he said: "The team need a bit of comfort so if we win, we can go into the final games (vs Bradford and Stevenage) and express ourselves a little bit."

Reviewing how he’s found the season, Beestin, who has made 39 appearances and scored five goals, said: “Individually, it’s been a good year for me, I’ve scored a few goals and I’m always delighted with that. I feel like towards the end of the season I’ve not been so good. That's certainly not an effort issue, but I’m just going to try to put in good performances and go from there."
