Scrimshaw: We need to build on Saturday's performance

19 October 2021

On-loan forward Jake Scrimshaw believes the Iron can be encouraged from their performance at the weekend against league leaders Forest Green Rovers.

Speaking ahead of facing Barrow in midweek, he told iFollow Iron: “I thought we performed well, and obviously the penalty decision went against us.

“I don’t think it was a penalty and I think everyone can agree with that, and it killed us a bit in the game. We were organised and set-up well. We did our jobs, but we got unlucky on the day.

“It’s frustrating, because even their players were saying it wasn’t a penalty, but there’s nothing you can do.”

The 21-year-old, who is at the club from AFC Bournemouth this season, took a number of positives from the game despite the end result which can be largely placed down to a highly debatable penalty award against the Iron on the hour mark.

“I think we will take a lot of confidence from Saturday,” he continued.

“We didn’t look like a team struggling in the league, and if we keep putting in performances like that, we won’t be at the bottom for long. Everyone wanted to react from the week before.

“We go again on Tuesday. It’s a long trip to Barrow, but we will give everything to get a result. Every game we want to get points on the board."

With Ryan Loft back from his cheekbone injury, the pair have been able to forge a new partnership up front, with some good interchanges at the weekend.

It’s a duo that will only grow as the games go on, according to Scrimshaw: “It was good, I thought we had a good partnership on Saturday.

“It’s about building on that now going forward. I thought we linked up well at times on Saturday, and it’s about doing that when we can.

“I’ve loved being here so far, I’m enjoying it a lot. Playing in my preferred position always helps, and hopefully I can add more goals.”
